Working Mums and Edits

It's a good thing I checked on-line yesterday....because I discovered a wonderful article in The National (UAE) by Alice Haine...A Mother's Dilema.  The article features four different mothers and I'm one of them. You can read it here. If you scroll through the pictures at the top I'm the third one (the one with all the books behind me)....

This past week I met with my editor to discuss the edits...and despite my nerves it was brilliant. I am so excited about about them now that we have talked them through and done a bit of brainstorming. For so long as a pre-published writer I have worked hard in my own little head battling out scenarios....now I have two people (my editor and my agent) who will listen to my ideas and help me figure out which one is the best. Brilliant.

The other big news that came out of the meeting is that THE CORNISH HOUSE will be out in May 2012! Gulp.

No time to think about that...edits to do on TCH and a complete overhaul of AUGUST ROCK...
