Following on much confusion as a result of The Friday Project's death and subsequent Lazarus-like resurrection when they were taken over by HarperCollins, I was eventually told that The Third Pig Detective Agency would be one of the books taken on by the new (old) company. Woohoo!
Much relief all around as it was a period of uncertainty, wondering if TPDA would be consigned to the also-rans heap.
I've been given a provisional publication date of March 2nd, 2009 and, hopefully, this won't change. Once I have confirmation that the cover has been finalised, I'll put it up here for your delight and delectation.
More news as I get it...
