Fantasy Novel Hedge Witch has a Publisher!

Thursday, 19 April 2012

Great excitement today here at Spellmaking Towers. I can finally reveal the news I've been dying to tell you all for some time: my fantasy novel Hedge Witch has a publisher. Morrigan Books are to release the book in 2013.

I'm absolutely bloody delighted. It's a book I love and it's wonderful to know others like it too.

Their press release is here. I've never been the subject of a press release before. How exciting is that? I can't resist quoting from it. Sorry. Indulge me.

Morrigan Books is pleased to announce the addition of Simon Kewin’s novel, Hedge Witch, to our e-book line in 2013. This is Simon’s debut novel, furthering our commitment to offering the best in innovative dark fiction from exciting new talent. We think you’re going to love it as much as we do.

I've been talking to Morrigan for some time, polishing up the manuscript and so forth. But finally it's official and I can tell the world. I can actually start using phrases like "my publisher" in conversation ...




No solid release date or cover art yet. Over the next few months I'll be working with an editor on a final draft of the book. But that's all for the future. Right now I'm just basking in the glow ...

  4. Oh, fantastic news! Your book sounds great, just the sort of genre I like to read (and write). I wish you every success, and it's got to be a result of your incredible hard work. I look forward to HW's release and hope you will throw a major cyber-launch party so we can all buy it! I suppose I'd better get a kindle, then...?
