So it's official! HarperCollins is to publish the first two books in the Demi-Monde series in the US, Winter and Spring. Gabe Robinson my editor in the US sent this to Publishers Weekly and Publishers Lunch:
'The first two books in a wonderfully inventive series about a highly sophisticated computer simulated world - the Demi-Monde - that is populated by numerous psychotic personalities from history and the efforts of a woman from the real world who is sent to save the President's daighter, who has been abducted in to this all-to-real nightmarish cyberworld. To Gabe Robinson at William Marrow by Emma Thawley at Quercus'.
Well, I guess this means that HC are now happy with the books' titles.
Anyway I'm a very happy little cat!
