Deal Announcement: Two-Book Deal for middle grade debut Mike Revell

As announced on BookBrunch and The Bookseller, I am thrilled to share the news of a two-book deal for Mike Revell's middle grade debut, STONEBIRD.  

 ‘There’s a demon living inside Grandma, eating her from the inside out.’

This is the quote I always use when talking about STONEBIRD, as it says so much about how Liam, the main character, feels about his grandmother's disease.  Much of this story is based on Mike’s real life experience, but although it deals with the difficult issue of dementia, it is also an uplifting book about friendship and the magic of storytelling. I’m so proud to represent Mike and his writing.

Mike Revell’s debut STONEBIRD, in which ten-year-old Liam struggles to deal with his grandmother’s dementia until he discovers an old stone gargoyle in a rundown church, and his life changes in impossible ways, to Sarah Lambert at Quercus Childrens, in a two-book deal for publication Spring 2015, by Gemma Cooper at The Bent Agency (World).
