Today was the day I received my first Editorial Letter for Bran Hambric: The Farfield Curse, and I realize that since loads of the people who read this site are writers as well, some of you might find this interesting.

So the news is out and it’s my turn to make the announcement I’ve been dreaming of for years. I just got word that my debut novel, BRAN HAMBRIC: THE FARFIELD CURSE, is to be published by Sourcebooks Jabberwocky. That picture is from my journal in 2003, when I was 14: the very night I had the idea that would become this book. I had no clue. It is impossible to explain to someone who doesn’t write books how amazing it feels to receive the…
