Almost exactly a year ago, I published this post. In it, I said:
I'M CONVINCED THAT THE DAY WILL COME WHEN I HAVE A GEN-U-INE ROGER HARDY BOOK ON MY SHELVES THAT HAS THE LOGO OF A MAJOR PUBLISHING COMPANY ON THE SPINE.
Today, I'm delighted to say that Roger has just made a giant leap forward in his journey towards publication. He emailed to say that he has been signed up for his sixth book by Peter Buckman from the Ampersand agency. The two met at the York Festival of Writing in 2010 and I'm sure they'll make a wonderful team. I'm now sprinkling fairy dust on Peter's efforts to secure a mega deal for Roger.
There's still no link for Roger, though I'm sure that's going to change at some point. But there is a link to a lovely post on the WordCloud that has me blushing so much you could make toast on my cheeks.
