Today is the cause of much celebration down Borough way (and in Las Vegas, where Kate is enjoying the bright lights). It’s the day that Scattering Like Light, the third in Sue Ransom’s Small Blue Thing trilogy, is published. Sue Ransom was the first author to be published by Nosy Crow and it’s amazing to think that, twelve months later, she has written and published three fine teenage novels. So if you want to find out how Alex and Callum’s paranormal romance ends, today’s the day!
Here are Sue’s thoughts on the publishing process, and her trilogy’s journey from BlackBerry to bookshelf…
“It’s unbelievably exciting to have all three books on the shelf, and with such lovely covers too. They look fantastic. Just three years ago I had never given any thought to writing anything, so to have achieved so much in such a short time is astonishing. And none of it would have been possible without the support of Kate and the team at Nosy Crow. It has opened up a whole new career for me and I can’t thank them enough for that.
My daughter, Ellie, has continued to love the books, and was able to provide some important input into the final drafts of Scattering Like Light. I’m really pleased with the way the story has evolved from my initial brief conversation with Kate, and have been particularly heartened by all the feedback from the readers. So many girls from around the world are now writing to me to tell me how much they like the story, and the few comments I have had so far from girls who have read the very end have been hugely positive, which is great.
I’m looking forward to writing many more books in the future – the bug has got me now!”
Congratulations, Sue, and here’s to Scattering Like Light!
