Working...and no, I don't know what day of the week it is

For those of you who don't Twitter or Facebook, the lovely person doing the final, final proofing of Stormlord Rising for Harper Voyager contacted me to clear up a couple of points about the text. At the end of the email said she was being slow because she was distracted by the story ... and she thought the book was fantastic!

So I'm happy.

Comments like that help, especially when I'm at the stage with book 3 where I am quite sure it's terrible, no one will like it, and I can't write for peanuts and should retire somewhere where nobody reads anything.

I shall put up the new total of words before I go to bed tonight...and I refuse to turn in until I am up over 100,000.

Has anyone in Queensland seen the Courier Mail review of The Last Stormlord yet?

I love that, I can see why the proofreader would get distracted by your stories they are so good. Hurry up and get over your book hating period, we know you can write well and your stories are excellent.
