The newsletter is, again, packed with news. August is usually a quiet month in publishing – but not for the DA Agency.
Our debut authors are enjoying immense success around the world, our much-loved established authors continue to grow from strength to strength and we welcome new faces to our DA Children’s Book Agency.

It’s beautiful today here in London, I think that we are finally seeing the back of winter, hurrah!

On Tuesday night we had the pleasure of attending a very special launch for the highly anticipated Knights of the Borrowed Dark by Dave Rudden.
For those of you who have not yet heard about KOTBD, you are in for a real treat. It tells the story of orphan Denizen Hardwick who discovers that he is part of a secret army that protects the world from an evil shadow realm.
It’s a fantastical, thrilling adventure of light versus the darkness. It’s a timeless yet contemporary classic and the world that Dave Rudden has created firmly imprints on all who read it. Trust me, you will never think of the ticking of a clock the same way again…
The wonderful people at Puffin Books and FMcM put on an unbelievable show recreating Seraphim Row, the safe house of the Order of the Borrowed Dark, in an eerie, candlelit Georgian house. Guests were free to explore the rooms and meet the characters, training with weapons expert Corinne D’Aubigny and even coming face-to-face with a Tenebrous, a monster from the shadows.
Puffin will publish in the UK on 7th April so you have plenty of time to get your pre-orders in, and if you’re lucky enough to live in Ireland, you can go out and get your copy today!
The response so far has been incredible and can all be attributed to the phenomenally talented author. Eoin Colfer, Irish Children’s Laureate, says ‘Dave Rudden is more than a rising star – he is a shooting star.’
