The synopsis is done and the designs for the book cover are about to be discussed with my publisher. The editing is ongoing but the manuscript is not yet ready for proof reading, that will be done next month. I'm also working on an 'authors note', which explains the philosophy behind the title of this book. Everything is looking good for a July launch, but of course before that, as soon as the sleeve design is confirmed I'm planning a reveal, so watch this space.

The next instalment of The Torc Trilogy is well under way. I might have missed my deadline for an Easter launch, but I think July is more realistic. In the town where I live, we have a summer festival going on then, so that would be a good time for a book launch. I'm now working on the second edit and things are looking good. This is the first time I’ve read it in its completed form. The manuscript needs proof reading but that will come in the next couple of weeks providing I don't have to do too many re-writes. I'm a quarter of the way through so far and I don't anticipate any horror stories lurking within the chapters left to read. I still have to work with my publisher on the cover design and back of book synopsis, as well as all the extra bits that need to go in, thank you’s etc. It’s a great feeling to have finished the second book in the series. I have a notebook full of ideas for the third book and I know exactly how it all goes, all I need to do is sit down and write it!
