I have spent the last three weeks doing the final edit of my latest novel. It’s around 90,000 words long, and I swear I’ve looked at every single one individually, not to mention the punctuation. By ‘final’ I mean edit number five. Then I went back to my records and had a look at the rough draft which I put together in January this year. Well, a book’s got to begin somewhere, but I closed that file very quickly.
Now it’s on to the next novel. I’m in a mind to go back to the very first book I wrote and re-work it. The idea’s OK but I wrote it more for myself than for readers. Or I can begin on the third book in my “Circe” series. It’s ready to roll.
As you can see, a writer never stops.
Good reading to everyone.
PS The book is “The Three Ways of Desire” and sample material should be available from around 2/3 September. The date for complete publication is 15th September, but the novel is already on pre-order on both Smashwords and Kindle.
