Just a quick note to offer huge congratulations to my friend and fellow author Emma Newman, who has just signed a deal with Angry Robot to release her very wonderful “Split Worlds” series of unusual fairy tales – you can read one of them here :
You can read more about the deal, how she got it, and the tiny part BristolCon played in the process, in an interview with Emma over on Adam Christopher’s blog :
Emma is one of the nicest, sweetest people I know in this writing business, and I’m absolutely over the moon for her and can’t wait to read the first book!
Emma Newman said:
Aww, thanks Jo! I still can’t quite believe it. I remember meeting Anne Lyle at Bristolcon, outside of my very first panel ever and she told me she had a book coming out with Angry Robot. I remember thinking “Oh that’s so cool, I wish I did too.” Then blow me down, it actually happened. Well, stranger things have happened at sea. Or something.
It’s great news, Angry Robot are awesome 🙂 Chuffed to bits for you!
