Well, actually it began a few months ago, when Crooked Cat Publishing announced that they were looking for new people to join their editorial team. Here, I thought, is an excellent opportunity to channel the rantings of my Inner Grammar Geek into a force for good. And if I can’t make it as a writer myself, perhaps I can at least be of some use to those who can.
To cut a long story short, I applied, and they were brave enough to take me on.
Then, last month, those lovely people at Crooked Cat showed themselves to be even braver. They accepted my debut novel for publication.
The Ghostly Father is a retelling of the old Romeo & Juliet story, but with a couple of (I hope) interesting twists. More details on publication dates etc will follow in due course.
