I Sold My Book After All!! Can't Post

Some of you might remember the trials and travails of my novel "Carrot Field" (think The Wind In The Willows meets The Lord of the Rings with a touch of Philip Pullman) which I've been working on for nearly 20 years and has had all sorts of misadventures in the publishing world. Last year my agent took it to the market again, and although many editors tried to acquire it, the publishers all got cold feet and it remained unsold.

Well, my agent's diligence finally paid off: a small publisher has acquired the book!! They really seem to understand and appreciate the quality of CF and the mountains of work that have gone into it and they also understand its potential.

If anyone wants more info, PM me. But I just thought I'd share the good news.
