Happy Monday, all! :P
Yet again, work on the PhD draft and other Outside World demands have made this month's post later than I'd like. Thankfully, with the former now in the hands of my committee, leaving only spots edits for the near future (and awaiting theirs with trepidation :D ), the deck is at last cleared for updating!
The main news for the month: As of the 21st, the most recent round of Discarded edits has been completed and sent on to my Unbound-chosen editor, Philip Purser-Hallard, after careful read-through of his first round of comments. If there's one thing this long yet vital process has hammered home, it's an even greater respect for those who pore over the roughest drafts and guide us writers to a fully coherent story and characters--and the importance of quadruple-checking every section yourself...before doing so one more time for good luck :D. No word's arrived as to when the next stage will begin, but I'm hopeful that it will sometime around mid-next month, if not sooner. Like always, any hints will be shared the second they come in; till that time, keep the masks on or lockdown in place, and see you in October!
