I’m absolutely over the moon to announce I now have a book deal. Faber Children’s has acquired ‘Dave Pigeon’. Thank you Faber! Thank you also to Polly Nolan who clearly has making-dreams-come-true superpowers – powers that belong only to two others: Santa and shooting stars.
This has been a double achievement. For those of you who thought I was a total blabbermouth, I’ve been sitting on this most mind-blowing information since the end of August without blabbing so HA! (And to those who I already blabbed to and made swear on their pets lives to keep it secret, thank you for not blabbing.)
I met with the amazing Alice Swan, my editor at Faber Children’s, last week for some cake and strawberries and a natter with the rest of the team. I’m so excited to work with Alice as we head toward Dave being published in 2016.
