So many ‘firsts’

You might think that once you have an agent and a book deal; once you’ve written a sequel for the first time; once you’ve published more than one book; done your first school event; your first book signing… You might think that there are no more ‘firsts’ left to someone who has been published a few times.

But you’d be wrong!

Behold… my first hardback book:

My author copies for The Iron Witch arrived from Newton Compton in Italy, and they are beautiful hardcovers – with a dust jacket and everything! I got a bit excited, I have to admit. 😉

And the book even has a little page on their website: look!!

*is very happy*


  1. I love the image of the open book at the back of the jacket and on their website, it’s… magical!


    1. 🙂 I have stroked it, I must confess…


  2. That is gorgeous and weighty and substantial!


    1. I will show you it, one day soon! 🙂


  3. *squees for you* That’s so exciting!
    The fact that it’s a translation in hard back makes it doubly awesome. Congrats babe!


  4. It’s beautiful! Congratulations! 🙂


  5. congratulations!!! it’s beautiful! i can’t believe i bought the ebook in english when i could have bought the book in italian.of course it’s not the same thing reading a translated book and reading it in original language.i loved the two books of the series.can’t wait for the next one.
