Revising! Drawing!

Hi everyone — just a quick note to say I’m in the middle of the (thankfully fairly light) revisions to The Scottish Boy’s MS that my editor has suggested! I even have help. Look at all the help she gives.

I’ve also got a new drawing for Chapter 2 from Trung (who’s at ECCC this weekend; if you’re in Seattle, say hi!). Here’s Iain in his cage:

This morning, as well as playing the Russian roulette of “can I touch the kitty tummy today”, I’ve been deep into 1936 papers on England’s medieval road system on Jstor, and squinting at the Gough Map (a late 1300s map of England and its major towns / roads). Onwards! And keep sharing, we’ve got a lot of fun stretch goals including more art and also prequels / sequels!
