Libraries are havens full of stories. I love the smell of books, books clamouring for attention, crammed and jammed on ceiling to floor shelves. It doesn’t get much better than all those unexplored worlds. I’ve spent a great deal of time reading and studying in libraries. So, I’m completely humbled and blown away to hear that Red Mice was requested, and is now indeed on shelves, in all Manchester libraries. Thank you.
Red Mice was copy thieved and plagiarised. That’s why I haven’t published book 2. I plotted arcs for the full series of five books, and book 2 was almost ready to go when I learned what had happened.
I had enjoyed every bit of Red Mice’s journey until that point – and yes, I now know this happens all the time. The empathy – and the true stories of morally-bereft fucknuts – really did help.
Two independent barristers agreed I had a case. But the woman in question was dropped by her agent, and the book was never picked up.
I didn’t speak outwardly on social media, no ‘blame and shame’ – that’s not how I roll – but the friends that knew about this were kind and supportive.
So, I want to thank you for reading and for being on this journey with me. It’s been quite the ride.
Red Mice is not over, and I will look forward to resuming our story when the time is right. Look after yourselves. ❤️
So… THIS happened!
Red Mice is being studied by a class of 17 year olds. And I’m blown away. ‘Themes of identity and self – particularly relevant to the young adult age group – flow through the novel’ – … the choices we make don’t always feel like ours. Red Mice is very much a tale about becoming aware of this, and seeing that things are not always what they seem to be.
To celebrate, for the next 48 hours, until Friday 24th November 2017, the book is on sale at £1.99
I am hugely grateful to everyone who has supported me along the journey. Thank you.
