We’re on the Author Review stage of book writing now, which essentially means “edit our work, and the changes our editor has made, and the queries she’s made about our horrible, horrible grammar/geek jokes/general errors”. Oh, and whilst we’re at it, we also have to trim nearly 100 pages from the page count.
Well, that’s going better than expected (experienced writers will know that there’s always a whole bunch more that you can cut without affecting quality), but we’re starting to flag. Johnnie has been hallucenating User Friendly-style coffee mugs. I’ve nearly fallen asleep in my oh-so-comfy ergonomic chair.
Only 110 pages to go, and then we can rest!
(We’ve also been incorporating changes and suggestions from our lovely, lovely technical reviewers. You all rock. )
