Hearty congratulations to graduate Ever Dundas who has just signed with leading literary agent Jenny Brown. It was Ever's stunning first novel Goblin that sealed the deal, which was her major project while studying MA Creative Writing at Edinburgh Napier University.

"I met Jenny back when I pitched Goblin in the Book Week Scotland at Looking Glass Books, back in November 2013," Ever recalls. "It seems so long ago now, but that event was a turning point."

When the time came to submit her full manuscript, Ever had no doubt about whom to approach first. "Jenny has such warmth and enthusiasm, and she's really excited about Goblin. Seeing her always cheers me up!"

Ever was a part-time student on the Creative Writing MA at Edinburgh Napier, graduating in 2011. But she hasn't been idle since then, with short stories published in various literary magazines and several first places in writing competitions [not to mention prize-winning photography and her gift for eerie collage artworks!].

We look forward to more news about the future of Goblin, a haunting narrative that spans decades and genres with breathless ease. In the meantime, you can visit Ever's blog or follow her on Twitter.
