Here’s the thing…
It was down to the day before publishing.
Years of hard work were about to see the light of day…
Then the sky fell in.
Well, it wasn’t quite that dramatic but it came a close second.
My editor had been away and had forgotten to send an email to say that there were some last-minute changes that she wanted considered.
That email finally turned up in our inboxes the day before the book was about to be published.
Now I have a fortnight to read through the suggestions and then write the necessary changes, some of which have a more serious impact than just a localised rewrite.
The publication date is now moved back a month to a date in the first week of April, hopefully not April Fools Day.
I’ll let you know when the countdown restarts.
