A tiding of tidings

As I thought would happen – I’ve not yet finished “The Making of a Story” as the next book in the Writing about Writing about Writing Review (it is 600+ pages long) so instead for this week’s blog – a brief bit of news.

I’ve been editing a novel for Grimbold (another author’s – a 3rd book in a series) which has been an interesting experience (doing a 3rd book that is – I’ve edited novels before) – meaning I had to read the first two books before tackling the 3rd. That’s what’s been keeping me busy the last few weeks.

But at the same time I’ve now passed back the proof of the re-issue of A Tiding of Magpies to the editor so I’m hopeful it’ll be out soon. It’s been interesting to revisit the book – I believe this re-issue is an improvement. I’ve removed stories that didn’t fit the theme and added stories that do (including one written especially for this edition) and I think it now works better.

I’ve also been approached with an exciting new opportunity (under NDA) that will keep me very busy in the near future.

I’ve also written several new stories over the last few months – and now need to polish them to send out on submissions. So, fingers crossed, there’ll be news of sales in the next few months.

As ever October is a busy month for me – and September is ramping up but I shall be around this weekend at Writing in The Dark so see some of you there no doubt.

So, until the next WAWAW blogpost – keep reading and keep writing!
