I'm such a professional pessimist that I don't dare to celebrate anything until it's signed and sealed. But this is! Woohoo!

So I can now happily announce that my second Age of Sail novel, 'False Colors' has been accepted for publication by Running Press, a subsidiary of Perseus Books (http://www.perseusbooksgroup.com/perseus/about_us.jsp)

I have just got the signed contract back from the publishers, with half my advance, the rest to be paid when I turn in the manuscript on Monday. Eeeee! And they're going to publish it as a mainstream book and distribute it to bookshops and everything! I will wait until I go in to a bookshop and see it on the shelves before officially deciding that I can die happy, but this comes close :)

All I know at present is that it's due out some time in the spring 2009. But I'll be sure to trumpet the news around as soon as I know more :)
