The end is nigh!

Good news everyone!

My MS is back from my editor and here is a choice quote to sum up his opinion:

'I really did like the ending. It was really a rush of pretty amazing revelations.'

This was my biggest worry and has been gnawing away at my grey matter for the last few months while the book was out of my hands. All my beta readers love the bulk of the book, but it is the ending that has caused a bit of a divide. I was terrified that my editor wouldn't go for it and i'd be in the uncomfortable position of having to drastically alter my entire vision for Magickless. The Sceptre and the Sword is my Empire Strikes Back, and if you have been following my posts about Kishōtenketsu then you have some idea about how important the end of part 2 is, and how it leads directly into book 3. I'll be honest, I feel almost as relieved now as I did when I first found out I was getting book 1 published.

So it looks like my plans for world domination audio book recording must be put on hold as I begin... DA dA DUUUUMMMM

The Final Edit.

Of course, it's not all roses and vanilla ice cream. My editor goes on to warn me:

'You still have a few bad habits, which I’ve commented on all the way through, but I did hardly any sentence re-writing for grammar purposes.'

Now if only I had an editor following me around and commenting on all the stupid things I do IRL.



  1. Congratulations! I know what you mean about sweating bullets on an ending. How wonderful to have an editor who gets it! I'm looking forward to reading your new book. :)
