I am so absolutely over the moon to be able to share my fantastic news with you guys - my novel, BLACKFIN SKY, has sold for UK/Commonwealth publication to Firefly Press!

Firefly are a brand new publishing house, and I'm honoured and so, so excited that my book will be their "flagship" YA publication in 2014! Here is the description of my novel from the press release Firefly Press issued today:

Young adult thriller, Blackfin Sky, by Rhyl-based debut novelist Kat Ellis, sees Skylar Rousseau drown off Blackfin Pier on her sixteenth birthday. She is mourned by her whole town, only to reappear at school three months later as if nothing had happened…

And another bit from the release *ahem*...
“We are thrilled to be launching with such an exciting and wide-ranging list,” said Firefly publisher Penny Thomas. 
Blackfin Sky is an amazing tale and Kat Ellis a real find and we are delighted to be publishing her debut novel as one of our launch titles.”

And here's the announcement on The Bent Agency's blog!

Roll on 2014!!!

Until then...COME DANCE WITH ME!!!

And I now have my very own author page on The Bent Agency's website. YAY!

UPDATE: My marvellous agent Molly Ker Hawn just sent me this announcement from Publishers Marketplace, so of course I had to share!
