A snapshot for you… the manuscript is even now on its way back to me on a specially strengthened mail trolley. It’s been through the first and most detailed editing stage and my editor, Simon Spanton, reports very few issues. Indeed, he has enjoyed it very much. ‘A thousand page manuscript… lucky it was such a cracking read.’
Ball back in my court. Urgent turnaround required along with a detailed map for art working. Still, it’ll keep me off the streets. Publication date in the UK still slated for October 2005.
