When I finally got to tweet out that my lovely little book will be published by Gollancz, I said in typical British reserved fashion, "Obviously I'm very happy about this." To be honest, happy doesn't quite describe it. I'm over the f@£$ing moon to put it mildly. And even though I've known about this since February, I'm still jumping up and down with joy. If I was agile enough, I'd probably do a few back flips as well.
When I started writing seriously all those years ago, this was what I wanted — a book with my name on it next to the Gollancz logo.
What a journey it's been. Up a big mountain. For now I'm going to catch my breath, enjoy the view, do another happy dance or two, then get on with the slog up the next mountain that is book 2.
