While I was in Baltimore I received via my hotel the final galley proofs for Dead Men's Dust US. This was simply a read through to check for spellings and typos and inconsistencies. 7 hours on a plane back was well spent going over the MS and I'm pleased to say that we are now good to go. It looks like the US edition of the book will be launched contemporaneous with the UK edition on 28th May 2009. I think I already mentioned that the two versions have slight differences in the finished version. Both are great in my opinion.
