I am delighted to announce that my UK publisher, Orchard Books, has just signed me up for another two-book deal!

So that means that after Swift comes out in early 2012, readers in the UK and Ireland can look forward to a sequel to that book (tentatively entitled Nomad), and also a companion novel to my YA paranormal thriller Ultraviolet (tentatively entitled Quicksilver), in 2013/14.

***

Also in the good news department: just this very day, Knife was announced as the winning title for this year's Concorde Book Award!

I would love to have attended the ceremony at Downend School in South Gloucestershire, but had to be content with sending a video acceptance speech instead (isn't technology grand?).

And now I am off to celebrate with cookies!

I actually made the cookies before the announcement, but they are oatmeal raisin and very good so they will do, yes. *nods emphatically*

And thank you!

This deserves some big sparkly text, but it looks like I can't embed glittertext in a comment. Oh well, I shall just have to use my mad CSS skillz!

Congratulations!


(edit: rats, it looks as if LJ strips the CSS out as well)

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!

That is good news - congratulations! I'm now about 2/3 of the way through Arrow and telling anyone who'll listen how good the Faery novels are, so knowing there are two more to come is welcome news indeed. And I'm very much looking forward to Ultraviolet, and now Quicksilver.

Enjoy the cookies!

Wow! Congratulations twice over! A new book deal is reason enough to celebrate but the Concorde is a very special honour. Cookies are the very least you deserve! :)
