Good news, everyone: after months of waiting, I can finally announce that my first novel, The House on Grosvenor Street, has been accepted for publication by Tor Books. I've known about this since April, but Tor countersigned the contract only today. This has been a dream of mine since I was a small child, so I am quite excited.

Don't worry: the comic isn't going anywhere. I am used to multitasking my creative endeavours. In fact, I wrote this particular book five years ago, right in the middle of West of Bathurst's run.

In case you're interested, the book is a YA fantasy about a girl named Freddy and her family's entanglement with the mysterious people next door. It's full of time travel, folklore, mythology, funny bits, lots and lots of spider plants, and allusions to the poetry of Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Panel 1: Iz is sitting in an alcove in the school hallway, looking at his phone. Rose approaches him.

Iz: Where were you? Lunch is almost over.

Rose: In the library.

Panel 2: Rose sits down.

Iz: Oh. Did you need to use a computer?

Rose: That's...not the only thing you can do in a library.

Panel 3:

Iz: It isn't?

Rose: Do you think the pretty rectangular objects are just there for decoration?

Panel 4:

Iz: Kind of, yeah.

Rose: You have no idea how sad you make me.
