A couple of things:

1. I’m delighted to tell you that I’ve signed a two-book deal with the brilliant Little, Brown. My first novel, The Last Romeo, is out spring 2018.

You can find out more about it on The Bookseller.

2. My name, as you can see from the piece in The Bookseller, is Justin. Hello. Nice to meet you.


I promise here and now not to bang on about this too much, unless it’s for a feature someone is paying me for (hey, I still need to eat), or part of the actual promotional work. This is not set to become a blog about the whole “process” because, honestly, who cares? 

I do hope you’ll buy The Last Romeo when it comes out and, more importantly, like it.

    1. Yes, he looks adorable – he makes out he’s a munter…deffo someone to go wild with, then introduce to one’s Mum!

  1. Congratulations Guyliner (or Justin)! Looking forward to reading The Last Romeo, and as someone slogging away at a novel myself, feeling a teensy bit envious too! Time to get my arse into gear and finish the damn thing. And for all the self-deprecation in your posts, having seen your photo now, you look really handsome!

  2. I’m probably going to sound like a bit of a stalker or something, but I had worked it out as I read a lot of your articles on the Official Charts website.

    I am looking forward to reading the book, as I’ve always thought you were good at creating a picture with the words you use, even just from what you’ve written on messageboards and forums.

    Congratulations and good luck!
