Ahem... some proper news...
[Image was a clipart jelly edited to have the date 21 September 2020 shown in it. Shutterstock came up first, so wherever I found it may or may not have purchased it]
Publication date is set in quite firm jelly for September. Backers/pledgers/pre-orderers will get their copies earlier.
Copy edits are done, next step is off to preparation for proofs. I should see proofs in a month or so. (Drum roll) I have seen some initial ART-WORK for the cover. I am not allowed to share it yet, but...It ties in beautifully with the style of Gibbous House's cover, so at least if you've got Gibbous House on your shelf, No Good Deed will look great alongside it.
My only problem at the moment is I can't set up a blog tour or pester local independent bookshops as I don't have any artwork or 'press-sheet' to show them. Ah well...
SPOILER Alert. Moffat III is going well. Around 17,000 words down on virtual paper and I'm enjoying the ride, since I write by the seat of my pants and I'm often as surprised as anyone which direction the book goes in. (It shows, you say. Haha. Well, l I hope not).
