I’ve got two editors (my dad and my girlfriend, but they are pretty aggressive and honest) and I’ve had them doing a proof read. I’m just finishing off the edits from the first of them. I anticipate a publication date (finally) of two weeks time.
It’s very very useful having people go through it and it’s something I’ve used to eke out my strange writing habits (right, sigh, smirk, etc) and has made me much better as a writer, over and above my development as a plotter and my own self-criticism.
So, yeah, two weeks. Ish. I do need to get this out there – it’s been an ordeal. The next ones will be much easier.
