I got a book deal! YES! A BOOK DEAL!
I got a book deal! Woohoo!
It is with Strange Chemistry — a new global imprint dedicated to the best in modern young adult science fiction, fantasy and everything in between. YES, that was the official spiel from their website, which you can check out here.
Strange Chemistry is the offspring of award-winning science fiction and fantasy publisher Angry Robot.
They are launching in September with a range of books that I will be salivating to sink my teeth into. Yum!
This book deal marks the end of a long journey and the start of a new adventure and I owe a million-and-one thank-yous to my agent — the oh-so-wise and BRILLIANT Meredith Kaffel from DeFiore and Company. AND I owe a thousand-million thanks (sorry — I dropped maths in high school) to Strange Chemistry Editor Amanda Rutter for connecting with WHEN THE WORLD WAS FLAT (AND WE WERE IN LOVE).
In the official announcement by Strange Chemistry, Amanda said the following:
“As soon as I read the first page of When the World was Flat (and we were in love) I knew I had found something special. I cannot wait to share this wonderful love story with the world!”
You can also view the announcement on their website.
I am now looking forward to becoming a night owl with an editor in the UK, an agent in the US and little-ole-me in Australia!
And YES that is a photo of me (or at least of my hands!) signing the contract. GO ME!
