Busy, busy, busy!

As The Soul Consortium edges towards its release, the list of things I need to do is growing. This week put two significant items on my to-do list, both of them exciting developments on the road of publication, but only one of them expected.

First, I was contacted by Medallion’s foreign rights consultant to arrange an informal chat in a couple of months’ time. She has the task of representing them at the London Book Fair and the Frankfurt Book Fair, and she will be trying to sell translation rights for my books to other agents, editors and publishers around the world. How exciting is that?

And second, I’ve now been sent the ‘redlined’ version of my manuscript. It’s at this point we really get down to the nitty-gritty, pawing over every last detail of the book, so that we can get it as perfect as it can be. I’ve had my first flick through the edits and have to say that I’m really impressed with what I’ve seen. These editors know what they’re doing you know! There are no big changes, just some tightening and tidying up to do, so I’m ready to roll my sleeves up and deliver. I’ll let you know how all that goes next week…
