    Those of you that know me know that I write. And I like to write. A lot. And that I've self-published a couple of novels.

    One of those novels is a zombie book under the pseudonym Warren Fielding. It's the first of a series now, as it turns out. I, and the entire 5 book series, has been picked up by American niche publisher Permuted Press. This is quite literally a childhood dream come true. One is on cloud nine. Best Christmas present I could have ever had.

    What are you guys getting :P

    Certainly not a publishing deal :o

    I am really pleased for you on the publishing front, will have to have a read of them (I love books, read every day and the genre is one I like (partial to some Jonathan Maberry now and again :))

    As for Chrimbo, I honestly don't know, I am the kind of guy that if he wants something he just gets it (the Surface Pro 2 jumping to mind) so it leaves friends and family with a bit of an issue where pressos are concerned.

    It is what it is I guess :)

    Well done you , class that is.

    Im not a zombie fan at all however, so your next book needs to be something to do with time travel. But a book where it leads into others, like back to the future stuff. i like that me. So get writing please ha ha

    Congratulations Dawn!

    A fantastic "Christmas present", but ultimately richly deserved.

    Hope it goes well for you... ;-)

    Nice job! Writing a Novel is certainly a great achievement, and having done several WITH a publishing agreement is definitely a great present for the holidays.

    Makes my own writing pale in comparison :p (which although a lot, is almost as dry as your typical MS Press cert book... then again, this is what the customer request, haha)
