‘Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness’ and endless ammendments to my manuscript – I’m sure Keats never had to wrestle with this temptation – the desire to keep tinkering until perfection is reached (in my eyes); or maybe he did and that’s why he was so good.
Anyway, as we enter autumn, the manuscript for A Shadow Falls is a season ahead, in the winter of it’s preparation. I’m ammending a few final bits and pieces that grated when reading the proof through. Nearly there – though I’ve said that before. I’m still hoping for an October release to general sale, but my priority is in quality rather than speed.
Apologies for all the hold ups, but I think you will see the rewards of this careful pruning and adjustment-making when you finally get the book in your hands. Aesthetically, its looking great – won’t be long know!
Also I’m pleased to report that I’ve begin to write Wolves of Winter Part Two, an altogether darker and more intense affair than the blood and thunder ‘stuff’ that was part one.
Until next time…
Up the Elves!
