W is for WiDo Publishing

Who are, officially, my publisher!


My manuscript for Locked Within was chosen as the winner of a contest for a contract with them, and I'm very pleased to accept! It's an absolute honour to be chosen, and to join the WiDo family. Just a quick look at their website and reading Karen's blog tell me that WiDo are a great company, totally committed to embracing the way the publishing industry is growing and changing. I'm excited to be a part of this and I look forward to working with WiDo to prepare my book for publication.

If anyone needs me, I'll be over here, hoping this isn't all just a dream.

    Karen, really? It was taken on my honeymoon, about 2 years after the last one I used. Thank my wife, she sorted through my photos to find a better profile pic!

    I've got a friend lined up to take some better headshots. Though I might have Jen pick out which one to use. ;-)
