Yesterday was all sunshine and smiles at Moose HQ. We're all very excited. One of our editors spoke me and said she was 'blown away,' by a Ms I had asked her to read. I had read it last week and thought it was fantastic. It is called, GABRIAL's ANGEL, and is written by Marc Radcliffe. The story is absolutely brilliant, the writing beautiful and the craftsmanship exquisite. We will be publishing in the summer of 2010. It is why we started Bluemoose, to publish writing like this, to get great books onto the shelves so that the reading public can enjoy books that perhaps wouldn't normally get published by the so called, 'publishing , fraternity. This is what an agent said.
'we might need to think about the conventions that will make the book more front of house’
What the beejesus does she mean? Is she saying because it is slightly different and doesn't conform to what is already on the 3 for 2 table the public won't buy it, understand it? How patronising. Gabrial's Angel is a fantastic book and deserves to be published and I am proud that Bluemoose will be doing so. I'm speaking to Mark later on today and I'm excited. You will be too, when we publish.
