Editing Update

A quick note before I collapse in a pile, but quite a lot to fill you in on!
Firstly, things are happening apace with publicity. The official announcements etc will take place around Frankfurt, along with cover reveal etc! I’ve seen the mood board for the cover and it is S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G.
Secondly title will be changing. There are various reasons, not least that there is a wealth of ‘The…Daughter’ titles and we don’t want Isabella to be defined by her father. This feels like an important moment for the book – I’ve been working on it for a year and it’s a chance to give it a name that works for what it is now. When we’ve decided what it is, I will of course share!
And finally, today I FINISHED my last major edit. My wonderful editor Rachel has brought the manuscript on so far, and I feel incredibly excited about where it’s gone. It’s far more taut, more exciting, and more emotionally connective. So all good things. I’m going to send it to Rachel and Barry tomorrow for final comments, but most of the work is done (apart from copy-edits, proofs etc etc. So not really THAT done.)
Right, I’m off to the pub to celebrate. Have a lovely week in the sunshine!
