Exciting News!

The thing about writing is it involves a lot of waiting. I've been bursting to mention this for a while now but have held off until it's official so here it is:

May 3, 2011

International rights:

UK Children's

MORTLOCK author Jon Mayhew's THE (MANY AND VARIED) DEATHS OF JEB MARNEY, about a boy healer who, accused of murder, sets off on a quest through Victorian Britain to find the seven fragments of the Grim Reaper's scythe blade, only to discover that each piece is guarded by one of Death's multiple identities and that he has been manipulated into a mission which will lead to the hideously unpleasant deaths of all humanity, to Ele Fountain at Bloomsbury Children's UK, in a two-book deal, for publication in Spring 2013, by Sarah Davies at the Greenhouse Literary Agency.

I'm so lucky to be represented by Greenhouse Agency and to be writing for Bloomsbury! And to be writing some more... well... I'm more than chuffed! I'll sign off before the exclamation marks get out of hand!!!
