One of the nicest things about writing is receiving copies in translation.

I'm very proud to announce the arrival of my entire DARKENING PATH trilogy in Romanian, published by Unicart (pictured here), with beautiful embossed covers that catch the light when you open the books.

THE ARROW OF APOLLO reaches 100 %

Apollo and Sarpedon
Some good news: THE ARROW OF APOLLO, my children's book based on Greek myth, has reached 100 % of its funding target with Unbound. I'm absolutely delighted, and can't wait to see the finished product, which will be a beautiful hardback.

Many thanks to everyone who contributed and shared.
