This is how I'm feeling after a long night of editing the final chapters of Toby Gentle and the Winter Assassin, and I'm totally blown away by the dramatic ending and sudden plot twist.
So the content editing is finished (YAY!!!) and now it's time to grab a couple more hours of sleep, shower, eat and start the final proof read.
My amazing friend Ruth, a freelance editor, has been working like a trooper to help with all this (and gave me a much needed pep-talk yesterday over the phone) and also my friend Sarah who works for a publishing company in London. I'm so grateful to have their support and experience. And of course, I am SO grateful to Carl Hickling, who has been gracious throughout this whole process.
Ok, this is starting to sound like an acceptance speech so I'll shut up and crack on.
