At Halloween, we published a series of pieces about some of our favourite ‘scary books’. I didn’t participate because I couldn’t think of anything. I’ve never really found books frightening. Until now.
You may remember Layla Harding from our first YA collection Heathers. One reviewer said her story ‘On The Line’ was “the absolute gem” within the book. Well, I’ve been reading Layla’s marvelous debut novel First Cut and it’s a pearl beyond price.
Damaged teen Camille is very much at home with danger, and the more I read of First Cut, the more frightened for her I become.
So. We’re going to publish First Cut. Sometime next year. And I’m very pleased and proud about it.
That is all.
