The developmental edit is finished

This is a quick blogpost to let you know that the developmental edit is now finished and the manuscript has been sent off for copy editing. `

The cover is being designed as I write, and there are other secret and exciting things happening which I can't tell you about yet. Maddening, isn't it?'

We have closed off the yarn and thread options now and I have a list of the names of everyone who  has kindly made those pledges. I'm hoping to get started on the dyeing for them next month, but it depends a little on how much work there is to do when the copy edits come back.

On November 16th, between 18:00 and 20:00 I'll be at Blackwell's bookshop in Edinburgh with three other Unbound authors, Ian Skewis, Tabatha Stirling and Helen Taylor. 
We'll each be doing a reading and then we are happy to answer questions and say hello. 
There are sixty places for this FREE event, and seventeen are gone already, so if you would like to come please book a place.

The link to information is here.

Best wishes and many, many thanks,
