This is the brilliant press release that went out to the industry a few days ago.
Hot Key has world and film rights directly from debut author Richard Masson for BOONIE (January 2013), which the publisher discovered through the Undiscovered Voices anthology. It is the “stunning” story of a young man trying to survive in a harsh, dry world.
Seems strange to read of myself as a debut author after so many years of writing but technically I guess its correct. Needless to say I am immensly chuffed by this, especially having met most of the enthusistic staff at Hot Key I know that if Boonie isn’t a raging success it wont be their fault.
Just off to sit in a cold bath for a while in case I explode.
