An update

A quick update for all of my pledgers and supporters of the novel to let you know that due to my being consumed by copy-editing… and the proofs for ‘The Story of John Nightly’ — I am currently fairly unavailable on MEDIUM (i.e. in words) but reasonably available on Instagram @tottaylor  (i. e. in pictures) if you follow my photo-album there— I am posting ‘enlightening’ images most mornings. I’ll be meeting many of you in person soon anyway - as publication date will be this summer.  

It's not too late to Pledge if you would like one of Unbound's super-deluxe hardbacks so take care and don’t let Agent Orange get to you!

thanks Tot... it's quite a business getting to that point when copy is copy and editing edited.
It looks a large tome... so much looking forward to reading something that I will, I'm sure, recognise.
Anyway- all best from West Dorset.
A thought: if you needed a very un fen- like editing 'retreat' - we live in a vast Victorian Vicarage ... within the sound of the sea... an acre of walled garden ... just lovely and big enough to have space .... my husband is rector (Cof E) of a valley here and the house comes with the job.Cant quite believe it sometimes ... such a gift.
