Book News: Mine!

snoopy_happy_danceI’ve been sitting on this news for a while (and it’s been killing me to keep quiet!), but I’ve been given the go ahead to tell you guys…

Thanks to Agent Fabulous, I’ve accepted a two book deal with a major publisher.

*pause for happy dance*

It’s a ‘digital first’ deal with MIRA’s new imprint which means that the book will be released as an e-book in the first instance (with the possibility of a print version later) and I’m so excited.*

I’m delighted that my book has found such a wonderful home and that I’m working with fantastic professionals who love it as much as I do. Honestly, I can’t stop smiling.

I’ll keep you updated with all the details over the next few months. Meep!

*So much understatement in this post. Please just picture me hyperventilating with happiness.

Film News: Much Ado About Nothing

I *heart* Joss Whedon (and that Shakespeare dude ain’t half bad, either) so was interested when I first heard about Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, but now I’ve seen the trailer (Nathan Fillion! Amy Acker! Wesley!) I’m properly excited. Meep!

How about you? Do you fancy it? Or do you think the Branagh version (with the fabulous Emma Thompson) is the definitive adaptation?

Happy World Book Day!

WBD2013_turquoise_leftI love World Book Day.

A day to celebrate books. A day in which my Twitter feed is full of pictures of adorable kids dressed up as their favourite book characters. A day that includes £1 books (and free tokens) so that children who might not usually get a book of their own do so. A day of library and bookshop events (‘yay’ for libraries and bookshops!).

A day in which I can fully justify going back to bed to read my book (The Remedy by Michelle Lovric)…

No? I still have to work? Pants.
