New from the US - Dancing in the Dark has finally found a US home

As this was confirmed while I was travelling, I was waiting till I returned to Melbourne to let you know. But since my wonderful US agent WERONIKA JANCZUK has already announced it on her blog and some of you already know, there seems no point in waiting. Hence...

I'm thrilled to share the news that Dancing in the Dark will be published by Flux in Jan/Feb 2013. I know it seems ages away, but the upside is that Flux is a fabulous company that specialises in YA and has a terrific list.

Special THANKS TO MEGAN BURKE. Were it not for her blog, and her interview of the youngest literary agent I have ever heard of, I would not have known that the passionate, dedicated and super-energetic Weronika even existed. 

Apologies to my fellow bloggers for having been largely absent from the blogosphere of late. I (perhaps unwisely) came to Europe with neither an iPhone (which I don't possess) nor a laptop - so must rent time on the hotel computer if I want to so much as check my email. And since there's so much to see and do, I haven't had time to read your blogs or even respond to comments on mine.But I'm thinking of you...

Re requests for photos - another apology. I've snapped a few on my mobile phone but am embarrassed to admit that I haven't yet learned how to download them, so that too will have to wait...

And one final apology - I haven't managed to heighlight the names of Megan Burke and Weronika Janzcuk and provide links to their blogs because I'm currently using a German keyboard and it's significantly different from what I'm used to.


  1. Congratulations Robyn. That's great news.

  2. Congratulations! That's exciting!

  3. Awwww Robyn, I don't need a thanks!! You did the hard work and wrote it and Weronika did the hard work and found it a home!!
