I’m still completing the Return to Me edits. It’s been slow going because I’ve been ill. It’s that time of the year in Melbourne when the weather is cold and drizzly and all the colds and flus are doing the rounds.
I’m up to page 129 out of 200 so I am slowly chipping away. My editor has been wonderful and identifying inconsistencies and tightening up the writing. Thankfully there have been no structural edits, it’s just been straight copy editing.
I also found out the publication date, which is September 2013. That’s right, it’s only two months away. My head is spinning at the pace of it all. This is the wonderful thing about digital publishing. Everything is so much faster.
The cover is still in process so I’ll see that soon. That’s when it all comes to life. When you actually see the cover and how it’s going to look. I’m really excited about that part.
During one of the weeks when I wasn’t ill I completed two chapters of my next romance novel and I can’t wait to finish the Return to Me copyedits and be able to immerse myself in this new world. I have a deadline and need to complete it ideally by September so I’ll be writing away frantically.
I’ll also be using this blog to keep myself updated so expect more frequent updates. I used to have a widget that displayed the wordcount and might revisit that so that I really keep up a cracking pace. Nothing like letting the world know what you’re doing to make you accountable.
