Beyond The Waves

Today is a day for BIG book news.
And as book news goes, it doesn't really get much bigger.

I've been sitting on this for a little while now, but now seems to be a good time to share it with you all.

The Wintercraft series has just found a fantastic new home across the Atlantic in the USA!

Greenwillow/HarperCollins have welcomed Wintercraft and the next two books into their fold and they will be publishing the first book in Spring 2011.

The Greenwillow team are all fantastic people and I couldn't be happier.

You can read a little bit more about it here.

In honour of this Day Of News, I'd like to say a huge hello to any Americans who are reading this post. *waves*

And the big question now is... how best to celebrate?


  1. SWEET!!! My family will be so pleased! I was raving about your book to them, and they were afraid they wouldn't be able to get it over there! HOORAY!
