Still juggling too many things...


Okay, well, the ebook and the paperback of Lies That Poison are out. Woo hoo! One book out of the five that I was juggling is sorted. Just six months of solid work to go then...

That just leaves me:

  • finishing the editing of book 1 of the trilogy
  • typing up the edits of book 3 of the trilogy ready to send to Fiona (my editor)
  • doing the edits of book 2 of the trilogy as they come back from Fiona
  • getting The Call/The Wrong Kind of Clouds ready to publish
  • doing the edits of book 3 of the trilogy as they come back from Fiona
  • publishing the trilogy!


The current timetable looks like this:

  • End September/start of October - finish the book 1 edits and send back to Fiona for a last look
  • Start of October - go through the first tranche of edits of book 2 that have come back from Fiona and check I know what I'm doing with them
  • Middle-end October - type up the changes to book 3 of the trilogy
  • Beginning of November - send book 3 to Fiona
  • Also the beginning of November - sort of The Call/The Wrong Kind of Clouds and re-publish
  • November to early December - finish the edits of book 2 of the trilogy and send them back to Fiona for a last look
  • December - look at the first lot of book 3 edits back from Fiona
  • January - finish off the edits of book 3 and send them back to Fiona for a last look
  • February - get the trilogy ready to publish
  • March - publish!


So... not much then.

To try and unwind after long days (I seem incapable of actually taking a day off...), I've started knitting. I've done a lot of cross-stitch in the past and found that very relaxing, but the light isn't really good enough in an evening now to do that. I've been taking my mum to a 'Knit and Natter' group for about a year, but for most of that time, I've not known how to knit and did cross-stitch instead! Anyway, in the last couple of months, Mum's taught me how to knit (for the umpteenth time!) and I'm now knitting blanket squares for a blanket for me and hubby. I'm not terribly fast at knitting, so the blanket will probably only be ready for next winter! But, it's (hopefully) stopping me from burning out.
