Copyedits - Hurrah

After what hasn't been the best couple of weeks, finally some coolness

Got my copyedit for my Shimmaron kid's book "The City and the Stony Stars" and for the first time it actually felt like it was real. It's a thorough edit, and one that has pointed out more than a few inconsistencies in the logic of the story – for which I am incredibly grateful. I have decided that, post initial first draft rush, this is my favourite part of the process.

Talking of all things Shimmaron, Tansy's book comes out in a couple of weeks, and I'm utterly thrilled for her. These are fun books, and I hope they do well, because it would be an absolute joy to write another one.
