On schedule!

Hello Shedders

A superquick update to let you know that I now have a proposed schedule from Unbound for A Murder To Die For. Yay!

The book is currently with an editor and I should get it back soon. After that, there's this:


End Feb  -  The edited manuscript will go to the copyeditor.

End March  -  The copyedited text will come back to me for review.

Early April  -  Typesetting.

Mid/end April  -  1st pass on page proofs. Proofreading begins.

Mid May  -  Proofreading complete - corrections sent to typesetter.

End May  -  2nd pass page proofs.

End June  -  Final files created and sent to printers. Ebook formatting.

Mid July  -  Printing.

August  -  Finished subscriber editions!


Apparently, the cover designer has already been briefed and I'm hoping to see some early ideas by the end of February.

Exciting times.

In the meantime, I'll keep you updated when I get any news, am happy to answer any questions you might have and I'll post some more interesting content and a few more murder mysetries for you to solve.

We have a schedule now m'lovelies! The end is in sight :)

Felion247 - It's coming soon!

Spring - That's up to Unbound - it could be on release of the subscriber editions this Autumn or nearer to publication date next Spring. You'll know as soon as I do. Whichever is true, I'd better get the murder mystery party theme finished!
