Very exciting day - finally agreed all the terms and conditions on the book contract.
Also got a positive comment from best selling author Neil Gaiman on goingunderground.net and his willingness to be interviewed or have some form of input to the book. Neil wrote the truly bizarre and imaginative book and TV series Neverwhere about a strange underground world which features characters named after tube stations. In London Below, feudal law rules, and all sorts of creatures exist. It is a fantasy world with mythic beasts and people wearing Victorian clothes, and speaking in the appropriate Victorian tongue - rather like the history of the tube itself.
