Birthday Editorial Update

Structural report finally received from Unbound Editorial Desk on my birthday (in AEST time)!

Starts off as follows:

The setting is brilliant. I am a real fan of historical action adventure as a genre, and I have written some myself for the screen. I think that the Armada and the shipwreck and Sevilla before are all brilliant - perfect for this kind of story. So, I absolutely applaud your choice.

The amount of research you have done on these historical events and places and on the everyday aspects of the world that your main character inhabits is brilliant and solid and irreproachable.

The vivid and concrete nature of your language is very impressive. I lost count of the number of times during this book I enjoyed the turn of phrase or a vivid description. So, there's so much to love here.
