Just a quick news update. I finished the first draft of Anthem 3 this week and am quite buzzed. The sense of achievement at the end of a book is always immense, even more so this time as it’s the end of a trilogy. There’s still a lot of work to go. The second draft is often much harder than the first, but you can’t rewrite nothing and it’s a massive thing to have that first draft done and printed. Book 3 has probably been the easiest to write. Probably because I knew the characters so well, I’ve been living with them for over two years. I always plot my books in advance, but this one was more heavily plotted than the first two as it had to tie everything up. I’ve had a lot of interruptions this summer but that outline made it easy to stay on track.
I always like to take to take a break between drafts so won’t look at the manuscript till mid-October, when hopefully I’ll come at it with a fresh eye. In the meantime, I want to relax; catch up on my reading, work on a short story or two and best of all, take a holiday. I’m off on a two-week cruise with my husband next week, taking in Spain, France and Italy. By the time I get back I hope to know the status of Anthem 2 with my publisher and will share any news here.
Right Here, Right Now, the anthology featuring my story The Coach comes out while I’m away on 3rd October.
