Please allow me to reveal the cover of my book. It's been created by the awesome (nay, LEGENDARY!) Tom Sanderson and frankly, I'm a very happy camper.
I'd just settled down for some serious writing when it appeared in my inbox. Since then it's been...oooh, pretty.
The publication date is (I think) early May 2009. It's now out of my hands and into the machine...
It seems REAL now, in a way it didn't before. It's got words, its got a cover, it's got the Puffin logo, it's going to be a BOOK. A manuscript no longer.
