I'm now hard at work on Book 2 of The Last War trilogy and also working my way through copy edits of WE ARE THE DEAD (while also dealing with a day job). Some nights I'm completely frazzled by the time I close my laptop, especially when Microsoft Word is playing up with my Mac. I'm really not a fan of that program. I write my drafts in Scrivener and that is just perfect. Word not so much. And that spinning ball that pops up when things aren't working? I just want to scream then.
But the long hours and brain ache is worth it. Especially when I see the book is now up on Amazon UK for pre-order. No one told me of course. I had to find out by accident. But there it is - 11th July 2019. Wow. It's really happening.
And then I see at the bottom, my publishers have put "PERFECT FOR readers of Brent Weeks, Brandon Sanderson, and Peter V. Brett." And I do a happy dance once again. What company to be in... :)
