Look! Feel? Cook meal? Brooke Shields?

BOOK DEAL! I've got a new book deal. More books, written by me! (Note to self: this means you actually have to, y'know, write more books. Eek.)

I'm very (VERY!) happy to announce a new two-book deal with Quercus Publishing. I'm hugely excited about getting to make more books with the Quercus gang - they pretty much rock my socks off.

Big thanks to my agent, Marvellous Victoria, for doing all that clever agenty deal-making stuff. And big thanks to Quercus (especially my wonderful editor, Roisin) for wanting me to write more books. And big fat HUGE thanks to those of you who've bought ENTANGLED or blogged about it or tweeted about it or mentioned it to your friends, because if you hadn't... *shudders*

Anyhoo, the first book is currently called UNDONE. I'll tell you more about it soon, I promise. But here are some of the featured elements to keep you going till then: a girl called Jem; REVENGE; the best character I've ever written (*crosses fingers*); a series of letters; someone called Fernando. (N.B. Some of these elements may not make it into the finished book, although the first three are pretty sure bets.)

Here's an unnecessary picture of Taylor Kitsch in celebration of this momentous occasion...



In summation: YAY!

In other news, I'll be taking a little break away from the blog, for personal reasons. It might be one week, it might be two. But have no fear, I shall return! Thanks for sticking around. Your patience is muchly appreciated.
