AUTHOR'S MESSAGE:
STICK YOUR JOB RIGHT UP YOUR...
Hello!

Lots of people seem to think that you're rich as soon as you get your first novel published. Sadly it's not true.

For the last couple of years I've had to juggle writing CHERUB with my job as a private investigator.

But not any more! With the CHERUB books selling well and coming out in Germany and the USA this month, I've given up my job to write full time.

This means I'll be able to write more books, do more signings and school events and meet more CHERUB fans.

Enjoy what's left of the summer!

Robert Muchamore

P.S. Fans are always welcome to e-mail me at: mail@cherubcampus.com
I try my hardest to answer everyone!

Or, if you're over 13, join the gang on the CHERUB forums

P.P.S. Thanks to CHERUB forum member KMG for designing the amazing CHERUB cube logo above!
