For those of you who have been following my on-going trials and tribulations, my highs and lows, my joy at being a soon to be published author, you'll be pleased to hear that I have finally delivered the completed manuscript of book three to my UK publisher, Hodder and Stoughton. We're at the stage of producing page proofs on the book - Slash and Burn - as we speak. Those of you that are already aware that I have had to undergo revisions of the book may be bored with this line, but my purpose is to remind budding authors how much hard work is really involved. But hey, the pay off is definitely worth the trouble. I'm indebted to all those who have helped me turn out a book worthy to follow Dead Men's Dust and Judgement and Wrath. Luigi, Alison, Sue, Swati and Alice, thank you all.
For those of you following this blog from an American perspective, rest assured that the work has been equally influenced by my US publishers, and I will be doing further re-writes in line with my editor, David, to get the books just right for the market at your end.
Hope you all enjoy the books as much as I enjoy creating them for you.
In the meantime: onwards and upwards with book 4. I'm forging ahead with the rough draft as we speak. It promises to be a thriller.
