Orion to publish Shadows and Haze in the UK

I’m very excited to be able to announce the Orion Publishing Group will release Shadows and Haze in the UK next year.

Orion – based in London – is home to an extensive list of quality of authors, including Charlaine Harris, Justin Cronin, Carlos Ruiz Zafon and Brandon Sanderson. Highly regarded in its own right, the group is also part of publishing giant Hachette Livre.

It goes without saying I’m excited and honored to be joining the Orion ranks. (And again using every ounce of restraint to resist multiple exclamation points.)

The wait for Shadows in the UK won’t be too long: it’s scheduled for a January release, with Haze due to hit shelves mid year. I’ll keep you posted as dates firm up.

The first two books of the Rephaim series will have their own covers for the UK market. I’ve had a sneak peak at the Shadows cover and I can tell you it is stunning. Hopefully I can share the artwork here on the blog as soon as it’s finalised.

Again, I need to give a huge shout-out to Text Publishing’s Rights Manager Anne Beilby for her tireless work in making this latest milestone a reality. And for the continuing enthusiasm and support of the entire Text Publishing team for the Rephaim series.

Amazing stuff.

    Wonderful news! This may be the first book that I end up owning multiple copies of, as I just might have to get my hands on a version with the UK artwork!

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in Brisbane with my husband and a retired greyhound.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
