So now I can finally share the news that scuppered my Nanowrimo, and it’s the best kind of news. Yes, the behemoth has finally found a home 🙂
New UK based publishers Kristell Ink, the fantasy and SF imprint of Holland House, have accepted Art of Forgetting and will be publishing it in two separate normal-sized volumes rather than one gawdalmighty fantasy doorstop. Dead tree and e-book versions, for release around December 2013, though I don’t have precise dates as yet. I’ve been sitting on this news for days, but now KI have gone public I guess I’m allowed to too!
I’m thrilled to bits about this, I’m really proud of AoF and I was beginning to despair of it ever finding a loving home. Like a slobbering Great Dane at the dogs home that a lot of people looked at, then sighed and went, “but it’s so HUGE!”
Of course, there’s still a lot of work to be done editing it and making it fit for public consumption, so I’ll start editing just as soon as I stop doing the Happy Dance….
….ok, maybe I’ll happy dance for a BIT longer….
More news as and when I get it!
(Edited to add – thank you to everyone who has commented – my spam filter decided you were all Nigerian lawyers and Viagra salesmen… Also WordPress doesn’t want to let me reply to your comments individually, so a great big THANK YOU to all of you!)
(Edited AGAIN to add – WordPress also spam-filtered all my replies to your comments that it had previously spam-filtered. WordPress is looking to be on the wrong end of an axe-related reprogramming if it doesn’t start playing nice….)
