I’ve been asked where we’re at with Book 2 of the Siobhan Dunmoore tales, a.k.a. The Path of Duty, so here’s the state of play. The line-edit should be completed in the next day or two. Then, the printed proof gets shipped out to my proof-reader for a final check. Once she’s done, the manuscript will have to be updated because there will be typos – there always are typos. When I’m happy that we’ve got as good a product as we can make it, I’ll announce the publication on my blog. My aim is still to have it in my readers’ hands by the end of July, if only because I desperately need a break from writing and editing. I’ve been through the manuscript five or six times in the last month and I still have at least one or two more passes to make, so you can well imagine that I’m getting to the point where I’ll be happy to get it done and move on to the next book, or maybe play golf instead of staring at a computer screen at home on top of staring at one for my day job.
Happy Independence Day to my American readers. Enjoy the fireworks, concerts and BBQs.
Addendum July 9, 2015, 11:30. The edited manuscript is on its way to the proof-reader and should arrive in the next few days.
