To be honest, when I wrote my previous post back in April, I thought I’d be back here a bit more often! But that hasn’t been the case for a variety of reasons – however, I’m returning now with some news…
I signed with a literary agent!
To those of you familiar with this blog, you’ll know this is something I’ve been chasing for quite a while. I’ve come close several times, had multiple full requests, but never quite been able to cross the finish line. However, my fourth book seemed to be the charm, and I’m delighted to announce that I’m now represented by the wonderful Laura Bennett at the Liverpool Literary Agency! Laura has been passionate about the book from the start, and I’m thrilled to take this next step on my writing journey with her.
I’ll mostly likely follow up with a post about what I’ve learned about querying, because it’s been a looooong process. But for now I’m just going to celebrate as the road unfurls before me. I’m excited to see what happens next!
You can pick up the e-book of Oak and Mist, the first book in The Ambeth Chronicles, for just 99c/99p on Amazon. Get your copy, and start your journey to Ambeth today…

Thanks, Darlene – definitely! There have been a few times where I’ve considered giving up, but I’m glad I hung in there 🙂
It took me 5 years to find a publisher for my book and she has published 8 more of the series!
Congratulations. Well deserved xx
Thanks so much, Esther 🙂 x
I think i hate you😆 But huge congrats nevertheless. I’m encouraged that you’re on your fourth book, perhaps there is hope for me yet. But do write about it please. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
Haha oh dear! 😀 It’s not the fourth book I’ve written, and it’s been a lot of years in the making. I’ll definitely do a post about querying at some point soon 🙂
Congratulations, Helen! That’s wonderful news 🎉
Thanks, Alethea! Hope all is well with you 🙂
