it's a penguin that's also a biscuit. genius!

i have news. and it feels so big that it deserves a message dragged behind a plane, or a naked dancing cowboy, or a free bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label for every one of you followers, at the very least.

but times are tough and so all i can afford is this typed drum roll and these three ellipses:

drum roll please…

i’ve just signed a book deal with Penguin, and if all goes according to plan my first novel, ‘A Million Miles From Normal’ should hit book stores around june/july next year.

it’s a ‘chick lit’ romantic comedy about a girl in advertising. (funny that!)

my incredible friends at our ‘surprisingly fun for such a strict bookclub’ had these biscuits made to celebrate.


i love them. (oh and the friends who had them made are very nice too.)


i think the geniuses over at charlies bakery were responsible for the craft’penguin’ship here.

thanks penguin sa, thanks ron irwin (awesome literary agent of note: http://www.ronaldirwin.co.za/Ronald%20Irwin.html). you guys rock.
