Sold!

I know I've been very mysterious about the new series I sold over the summer, but I wanted to wait until NaNoWriMo kicked off to announce the sale (it's a personal homage thing, because this all started with the novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo back in 2009.)

Every story we write is important to us, but every now and then one comes along that you believe in and then fight for, even when everyone else tells you the smart thing it to give it up. When you sell a story like this it makes all the hard work and blind faith worthwhile, too. And this is that one for me. Not the book of my heart, but the book of my dreams.

Her Ladyship's Curse, the first novel in my Disenchanted & Company urban fantasy series, will be released in August next year by Pocket Star. For more details and a few chuckles, head over to SF Signal, which has the exclusive announcement here.

    Oh my word, now I can't wait until next August. I must stop wishing my life away like this, but I so want to read this. It sounds totally fascinating and a wee bit steampunk.

    So congratulations on your 50th book and like Nicole above I can't wait to dive in. I'm not too sure about the bringing gold though...!

  7. Sounds so COOL! I love stories with a Steam Punk vibe (and alternate history definitely fits with that). It is going to be difficult waiting until August. In the meantime, back to my own keyboard! NaNoWriMo calls. :-}

  20. I had a feeling you'd sold it.
    But good grief, 50th?!?
    In twelve years?

    Y'know, it's a pet project of mine to try and figure out what the books are you don't/can't/aren't allowed to admit to writing. Because I want to read them.

    Grr.

    Secrets like that don't help books get bought or read. I think things like that ought to expire after a certain amount of time.
