Ever heard of Momentum? Possibly not, it is the new(ish) digital-only imprint of Pan Macmillan Australia. Pan Macmillan, you have definitely heard of, I assume, as it is the fourth largest of the collection of publishers formerly known as The Big Six. And why am I rambling on about Momentum? Because I just signed a two-book deal with them.
Yes, me. No need to sound so surprised.
Momentum is to (re-)publish my already-successful time travel thriller, TimeSplash, some time around Q3 this year and, shortly afterwards, will publish the sequel. Yes, for all those people – tens of thousands of you – who have read TimeSplash, there will be a sequel released towards the end of this year. I am so excited about this.
I’m within lobbing distance of finishing the second TimeSplash novel (which doesn’t even have a title yet) and I really can’t wait for people to read it. I really feel the second book is better than the first, which is personally satisfying but also makes me squee inside at the thought that the people who enjoyed the first book, a great many of whom have asked for this sequel, might not actually be disappointed with the second one. Because that would suck big time.
As ever, I will keep you informed of how the books progress as they go through the mill at Momentum, acquiring edits, covers, blurbs, release dates, titles, and so on, and I hope you will stick with me for the next few months until TimeSplash and TimeSplash 2 are launched. Meanwhile, TimeSplash has been withdrawn from the market and won’t be available again until Momentum releases it. So, if you haven’t read it yet, I’m sorry but you’ll have to wait.
