Ah, the unexpected tribulations of being an author. Just when I thought I was free and clear with The Faeman Girl, my agent emailed to say recent research has shown, contrary to what you might imagine, that young male readers shy away from books with 'girl' in the title. (Unless, presumably, it's preceded with a word like 'naked.') So, despite my earlier assurances, the book will not now be published as The Faeman Girl after all. New titles under consideration are The Faeman Heir or possibly just The Faeman. Any other suggestions, let me know, but make it fast because catalogues are about to be printed.
