It's official - I've sold!

It's been an amazing week or so for me. Last Thursday, I had an offer of representation from a agent with a great depth of industry experience, Clare Forster from Curtis Brown Australia. The following day, I received an offer for my books.

Now that all the discussions are finalised, I'm thrilled and over the moon to be able to say that I've today accepted the offer from Hachette Livre Australia (one of Australia's major publishers) for two books :-)

This is for my GH winning book, and the next one. The titles will change, and I'm not quite sure yet which name I'll be writing under, but I'll sort that out in the next few days.

They will be published in Australia as a trade paperback under the Hachette Australia imprint, with the first book probably out next September. Bernadette Foley and her colleagues at Hachette have been wonderful and enthusiastic, and I'm really looking forward to working with them.

The DH is bringing home a celebratory pizza, and I'm hoping some champagne, too! We'll go out for a proper dinner celebration some time over the weekend or next week, but town's a bit far away to go back in there tonight.

Huge congratulations, Bronwyn. That's an awesome achievement. When you start hitting the NYT list, we can all say we knew you way back when. This couldn't happen to a nicer person. Love you to bits
