Hey, kids!

It's Happy Dance time again!

Just back from two week's vacation when I got the email I've been waiting for for months—the good news that the long-missing contracts between my UK publisher, Snowbooks, and my soon-to-be US publisher have finally been signed, sealed and delivered.

Which means that, yes, a US edition of Alias Hook will be coming out from Thomas Dunne Books/St. Martin's Press in Spring/Summer 2014! I'd be jumping up and down, but I don't want to spill the champagne!

Many large and sincere thanks are due to TDB senior editor Pete Wolverton, and his most excellent assistant editor, Anne Brewer, for shepherding me through the process so far. (Thanks for all the pep talks and virtual hand-holding!)

I am SO looking forward to working with these two on the US edition. They even asked me for suggestions re: the new cover design—how cool is that?

For those of you who came in late, feel free to bop over to my Alias Hook Facebook page and read all about it.

And of course, if you just can't wait till next year, the Snowbooks edition of Alias Hook (with a dynamic cover designed by Anna Torborg) is available as we speak online from The Book Depository —with free shipping worldwide. Such a deal!
