I have a very exciting announcement to make….
— Matthew at Urbane (@urbanepub) June 20, 2017
I am so happy and excited to announce that I have just signed with Urbane Publications! As many of you will know, I’ve been writing for quite a while now, so to partner up with such a dynamic, innovative and passionate publisher at this point feels like the perfect fit for me.
I have to say, I am really overwhelmed by the goodwill and support from within the writing community since the announcement. I have celebrated and enjoyed the successes of other authors, but it’s really wonderful to feel all that generosity coming back. It’s funny because you think you know how it will feel, but it’s been so surreal! I spent most of yesterday just drifting from room to room, head stuck in my phone, with a permanent smile on my face 🙂 Everyone at Urbane has been so welcoming and all of my book blogging friends have cheered me on like family – I’ve always known I had an awesome tribe, but this just confirmed it!
So I’m really looking forward to this new chapter (sorry! it was a late night) in my writing career and will keep you updated on the release of my new book, The Story Collector, which is due for publication in Autumn 2018. In the meantime, thanks again to everyone for supporting and encouraging me in my writing career, and special thanks to the angel who pointed me in the right direction.
