I have just sent back the manuscript to my wonderful editor, Rachael Kerr at Unbound. She did an amazing job, spotting pathetic errors, ridiculous repeat phrases in one sentence... "I was kind of sad, but it kind of made sense as I kind of walked down the kind of corridor....'
For goodness sake, how could I do that! Shocking.
Anyway, I'm really pleased with the result, it's now a question of cover design, reading the final draft as it will be printed, hoping everyone who goes over it spots the obvious typos and glaring errors and then.
Off it will go.
I literally cannot wait to discover what you thin k. It's a lot longer than News from Gardenia, dealing with many other areas of life, and I think the character of Gavin Meckler goes through a bit of a self awareness course courtesy of the wonderful women of the Squares.
The image below is a screenshot of some of the manuscript at 25% so you can't cheat and read a bit :-)
