About five years ago I got out of a swimming pool with a new writing idea sparking in my head:
Woman in the future, living in a London church with a horse called Kafka.
Many, many, many drafts, edits and readings by wonderful readers later, HOXTON has been taken on by an agent. Still work to do but after her last comments I can see the shape of the book so much more fully now.
One of my early readers was a young man called Charlie and he just texted me this reaction to my news.
The wellest of well dones!! Hoxton is unlike any novel I've ever read - optimistic, anarchistic, post-capitalist, Francophile, sci-fi - yes please!! A publisher would be mad not to bite her hand off.
I can now say: Kate A Hardy is represented by Sandra Sawicka at Marjacq Scripts, Holborn, London.
St Leonard's Church in Sureditch (Shoreditch) where the book is mainly set.
