While visiting the folks in Wales I had an email from my editor to say that the comments and suggestions from the beta readers had come back. I’ve now got 250 pages of tracked changes to wade through.
At least page one didn’t say ‘What a load of bollocks!’
Once I’m done with accepting and commenting (or perhaps even defending against some changes), they are going to start formatting it for publication. It’s been seven months since I actually finished the first draft of the manuscript and it’s good to see things moving slowly toward being published.
Hopefully I’ll be able to post more details about the novel soon.
