Due to the unusual nature of the contract I had with HarperVoyager for my first three books, there was no possible work for an agent to do for me at that time. Now that I have a new book (Blood of Antiquity) written, however, it is vital that I have someone who knows the industry to guide me and represent me.
It is therefore not only an honour but also a massive benefit to have someone of John's renown and experience at the top levels of the publishing industry on my side. Having headed up and even established fantasy imprints and worked (in publishing and as an agent) with many authors who are giants in fantasy and science fiction, as well as helping many new authors to launch their careers and in turn go on to great things, John is himself a legend in UK publishing and you can see why I am so excited and elated at the thought of joining his agency and working with him on Blood of Antiquity and future books.
