When more is definitely better

never-mind-the-quality-feel-the-width

Crack open the merlot and break out the tortilla chips… I’ve made it to 70,000 words. 70,092, to be precise.

I’m on target to have a complete first draft of Pressmennan by the end of November and – provided I work hard on fixing it up in December – a manuscript that I can send out by the end of the year.

As someone who was brought up in the garment business (we lived above the shop) I’m delighted to echo the sentiment above. Fine tuning will come later. For now, I’m just very chuffed.

  2. Well done!! I am chuffed for you! I loved the series, I worked with a bloke called Kelly and my maiden name was Cowan so people always referred to us as Coen and Kelly!!

    You are on the final straight. Keep going!! Or as we used to say in my teaching group -work hard but don’t forget to feed the dog!

    Really looking forward to reading the book. My daughter in law has been working on the Agatha Raisin book (first name terms with author) will be in Sky1 at Christmas and looks amazing!!

    Take care, sending loads of love be to you both. J xx
