Distinct lack of blogging

Which sadly isn't going to change all that much in the coming weeks. But life progresses, about half the house is painted, I'm 100k into Moon's Artifice (about 3/4 of the book I think) and my line-editor is up to the big final battle of Dusk Watchman so that should be all edited by the end of April.

I don't think I'm giving much away by saying there's a big battle at the end of the book btw. Given it's the end of the entire series, I think I'd be lynched if I didn't have one! Unless of course I'd come up with a stroke of utter genius to beautifully comfound expectations, but the more I read through edits the more I realise I'm just no genius… Seriously, there's nothing like someone pointing out dumb stuff you did 18 months ago and never noticed over the dozens of times you re-read it afterwards to remind you of your place. I know I'm never going to win prizes for my prose or logical thought-processes, but some of it's just mystifying ;0)

And I've just realised, once this edit is done, I'm sort-of technically out of contract! Admittedly we've been arguing over the Moon's Artifice contract for over six months now, but that's taking so long I doubt it'll be done before Dusk Watchman is ready for the printer. So I'll have a mortgage and house repairs to pay for, and no contract… Nothing like a bit of pressure eh?
