Default That's book 1 done!

Hiya folks!

Well, that's book 1 finished. First-draft finished, but hey, that's the big one. After this comes 'polished enough to send to my editor' finished , then 'making the changes the editor wanted' finished , and finally 'galleys proofread' finished - but it's putting in the final word, even if it doesn't stay as the final word, that counts!

And book 2 is chasing on its heels, wanting written!

But for now, I'm going to sleep...

P'ter - yep! But I still need to think of it as book 1 so as to get enough backstory into the tale so new readers aren't desperately confused.

Steven once left a note on my desk as to the best way to incorporate backstory into the narrative.

He suggested a prologue:

"Dear Reader - I'm assuming you have already read the first book. If you haven't then please go out and buy it. It's rather good."

Never wonder why I love this man!

Hurrrrraaay and Congratulations Elizabeth!!!Here's to another fantastic creation.
Lets hope it doesn't need a lot of anything else done to it other than printing it into a book that we can all read...I am getting sooo excited already, and to think that there are going to be at least 2 more in the future for all of us and your other fans to read...YEAH!!!


P.S. time for that long awaited and much needed rest and that grand vacation...well as soon as the ash stops blowing your rides away that is.

Mind you the publishers probably have a contractural clause forbidding such undermining of their commercial base.

P'ter - seriously! Kevia, P'ter, thanks for the kind compliment, but I'll wait until it's published to hear what my fans (you know, that's still a strange concept!) think. I don't write for the fans, my friends. I write what the characters and the plot demand. Mostly the characters. I don't take suggestions either!

Artistic integrity for ever!

Writers of the word unite: you have nothing to lose but your fandom!





Actually I never regard myself as a 'fan': I'm a critical reader! (Just like I'm never a tourist: always a visitor)

P'ter, critical readers always find "foot-in-mouth" disease by fair means or foul by authors and publishers alike It's something that will get picked upon, whether it's grammar, spelling, characters or a storyline that doesn't fit in properly with the rest of the book. The thing is though, is that everyone has an opinion about a particular book / movie et al (what they like or dislike etc...) and others have to accept that that person is simply making an opinion.

Lanen, congrats on getting through book 1 of the new trilogy.

P'ter, Jube - interesting to read your comments.

Jube, if there is a storyline that doesn't fit in with the rest of the book, that's called 'lousy writing' and you should stop reading that author!

And despite political correctness, or indeed the business aspect of writing, an author does not and cannot write for 'the fans', at least no author worth his or her salt. Writing a book is a deeply personal expression of creativity, of self. There is no point in trying to write for anyone else.

And P'ter, I hope you're teasing. You're right, I have solid contractual grounds for not being able to let anyone read the manuscript.

As for critical readers - I have enough of those. They are, for the most part, people I have known for twenty years or more, who are not fans and do not spare my feelings. Most of them are professional writers. Thanks for volunteering, but I can't accept your offer.

Please forgive me if I sound cranky. I haven't slept more than a few hours for days now, and have had a vicious headache for a week. Not on my best form. I'll post again when Steven is home and I've had some sleep.

Elizabeth...Hope your head feels better soon...with Steven home it will relieve most of your stress...when the book gets all wraped up in a beautiful cover, hopefully the rest of your stress with fade away like smoke.

Sorry not to have replied sooner, Lanen, I was tied up with visitors (Hans )

P'ter is right, and I do hope you've been enjoying the world of the Swallows and Amazons - they were stalwarts of my childhood and I still avidly re-read the books at least every other year or thereabouts
