Big news – US publishing deal for Songs

Champagne bottle topI am pleased to be able to let you all know that The Wild Hunt trilogy has been picked up by Tor Books for publication in the USA, bringing the number of overseas editions to six. Songs of the Earth is expected to hit bookstore shelves in the spring of 2012, followed by Trinity Moon and The Dragon House in due course.

This is the Big Kahuna, folks – the USA is a huge market for fantasy, and notoriously difficult for a debut to break into. I can’t begin to describe how stoked (and slightly scared) I am, and excited to be working with a publisher of Tor’s calibre.

I have no word on covers or definite release schedules yet, but as soon as I have something I can share, I’ll be sharing it. Now to find something to remove the silly grin plastered all over my face . . .

    Extra large congratulations!

      Thanks for all the kind words, guys – there was indeed a bottle of something French and fizzy consumed on the day, with a certain amount of demented giggling. Bet this next year’s going to fly past!
