A new book deal with Orbit for Heather Child's extraordinary debut novel SMARTFACE.
Yes, so we have finally reached the stage where I went out yesterday to publishers on both sides of the pond with my very first client Sam Hawkes who I took on in June last year.
You may be asking - why has it taken so long? Well the simple answer is, it takes time to craft a book. Sam's original submission was wonderful, fabulously written with original characters and some great world building. But my previous role was as an editor and editors like to tinker with words. Okay - maybe not so much tinker as ravage, pillage and reorder.
