Contracts are signed, information is up at the publisher’s website, and I just received the press release in my email, so I think it’s officially official.

The Affair of the Porcelain Dog by Jess Faraday has been acquired by Bold Strokes Books, with a planned release in 2011 in print and ebook form.

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am to be working with this publisher. Not only have I enjoyed their titles for many years, but their authors can boast an impressive list of awards. Everyone I’ve spoken to has been friendly, which is important, and utterly professional, which is even more important. My assigned editor is someone whose writing I respect, and though he’s warned me ahead of time that he will be a harsh taskmaster and critic, I know that the book will be all the better for it.

I received the offer at the end of last month, but it still seems like a dream.
