First blog, so let's summarise the situation.
- I've written a sci-fi/fantasy book called 'The Demi-Monde;
- My agent (John Jarrold) has pitched the book to various publishers around the world;
- Quercus (an independent British publisher) has signed the four book Demi-Monde series with the first book 'The Demi-Monde: Winter' hitting the shelves (probably) in January 2011; and
- Rod Rees (that's me, the me now referred to as a 'British novelist': doesn't that sound cool) finds himself obliged to write three more novels.
My aim is to make this blog a diary of my adventures in publishing. The next big event is meeting my editor (Nick) at Quercus and meeting John Jarrold for the first time (ours has been a strictly digital relationship thus far).
I'll keep you posted.
