20th of May, 2014!
It’s finally happening, folks! After one year, five drafts and probably a couple of hundred emails with editors, proofreaders, test readers, an artist and a formatter, my debut novel is going public.
The Edge of the Woods, a 64.5k word young adult fantasy adventure about friendship, strength and courage will be available as both an eBook and paperback from Amazon on the 20th, with other ebook retailers to follow.
I can’t tell you how exciting, terrifying and weird it is to have reached this point. I’ve wanted to be a novelist for a very long time, and now to be able to call myself one for real is just… awesome. I’m very proud of my first story, and I look forward to sharing the next (and the one after that, and the one after that…) with all of you.
I don’t know whether to drink a glass of wine, or get cracking on book #2.
Yeah, let’s go with both.
Note: If you’d like a chance at a free signed paperback, my Goodreads giveaway is running until May 31st.
