It's taken six months of writing like a demon while the baby naps and snatching time whenever the boyfriend takes him out and about but I've done it! I've finished the first draft of novel 3 - all 123,110 words of it!
There's a hell of a lot of rewriting and editing to be done, not least how I structure the two narratives so neither suffers from a drop in tension when there's a switch (anyone done that successfully or read a book that does?) but I'm really excited. I can't wait to whip this book into shape (not least because my agent will be promoting it at Frankfurt so I need to get it finished ASAP). I worked on HOME FOR CHRISTMAS for what felt like forever and can't believe this is only the third first draft I've completed.
Thanks for all your agent questions. Maddy will be answering them in September.
