Tuesday, 31 May 2016

The final total has been achieved. Thanks to everyone who has contributed. The book is finished and awaiting editing which I've been told will be sometime in July. I'll keep you all updated as the process goes along. It will be an interesting experience to discuss the story line with an editor at last!

An update for all those of you who kindly supported 'On the House'. The manuscript is now with the editor and the whole process should take about sixteen weeks. This means the book will become available sometime in November. If you have any questions of comments please keep them coming. I'm still writing - almost completed the last volume of a quartet of novels set in the fractious times of the Wars of the Roses. I have a firm idea for the next book planned out. So that's the next couple of years sorted then!

Further news of 'On the House' for all who are supporting me. The editing process is well underway and on schedule. Not as painful a process as I thought it would be and it's been a very useful experience to have an objective eye look over it. Altogether a very helpful exercise!

The cover for the book has been designed and agreed; I think it's very stylish. Everything is now completed and just a few things to tidy up. I expect the book to be ready by the end of the month - at least I hope so. You have all been wonderfully patient and, as we near the end of the process, I'm looking forward to chatting with you as to what you think when you have read it.
Regards to all,
