All year I’m making vlogs to chart the life of my sixth novel, I’ll Take New York. This week, after my BIG NEWS has broken, I’ll tell you how I feel about the next three years and answer your great questions about books, writing and publishing.
How should you go about self-publishing and should you choose that option over a traditional route to publishing? Do my characters ever surprise me? And which locations would I like to write about? These fab questions are answered in the vlog. I hope you enjoy it!
Plus – watch out for MY NEW HAT! I thought it was about time I treated myself to a new hat as the last few vlogs have been in somewhat of a Hat Rut….
So what would you like to know about writing, books, publishing, hats or anything else? leave a comment under this post, or email me at: email@example.com or tweet me @wurdsmyth. I’d love to answer your questions!

It’s finally time to share my amazing news with you, after two months of keeping it to myself…
I’ve signed a THREE-BOOK DEAL with PAN MACMILLAN!
After six great years with the lovely team at Avon HarperCollins, I’m moving on to the next big chapter of my writing life – and I’m so excited! The decision wasn’t an easy one to make: Avon gave me my big break and believed in me, which I will always be grateful for. I’ve worked hard to create books that reward their faith in me as a writer and I’ve grown so much during the past six years working with the fantastic team. Over half a million book sales worldwide later, I’ll Take New York is the culmination of what I’ve learned and I know Avon is so excited to share it with you when it comes out on 30th September in eBook and 4th December in gorgeously sparkly paperback…
I never thought I would ever be able to write books for a living, so I’m blown away that my writing dream – which was my dearest secret for so long – is still coming true and taking me to new places I could never have dared imagine.
I will be working with the super-fab Caroline Hogg and the Pan Macmillan team, who are all bursting with enthusiasm about my writing. I can’t wait to begin work with Caroline and the team on my first book for Pan Macmillan – my seventh published novel! I’ve already started writing it and I know you’re going to love it…
I’m excited about the stories I’ll be able to share with you and the new roads we can wander down together. There are so many new things I want to accomplish with my writing and I’m over the moon to have the opportunity to explore them in my new publishing home!
