Thurs. 3rd June: Late nights

Unfortunately, the York Roman Festival was not blessed with good weather. Still, a good time was had by all, thanks to the sterling efforts of Keith Mulhearn of Complete York. If you’re visiting the city, check out the amazing central location it was held in: Grays’ Court. A great place for a meal, and shortly to be a hotel, I believe.

It was back to work straight after the Bank Holiday, and now I find myself at the end of a pruning edit of Soldier of Carthage, largely thanks to the critique of my old friend Arthur O’Connor, the only non-publishing person I know with a mind like an editor. Cheers to him for having me up at nearly midnight! Still, the manuscript is a much improved beast now, so fair dues. I’ll finish the last ten pages in the morning, and then print the lot off to read it AGAIN. All being well, I’ll email it to my editor next Monday. Then it’s fingers crossed until I hear from her…

    Of course it’s nice to hear that someone else likes one’s book, but you don’t know my editor! Proper old school. Think of the feeling when you were waiting for your exam results in school, and multiply it many fold. :-/
