Editing the novel Without Warning

For other authors who have been through the editing right of passage, you have my respect. For the readers who pick up errors in the finished work, please believe me when I say we laboured hard over the manuscript to get it right.

I’ve been through edits before, but never in such detail. Now that we are nearly finished Without Warning, I can tell you it was a marathon. My first pass at the 100,000-word manuscript increased it by ten per cent. Bad author! Fortunately, Caroline Mullarkey of Feather Knight Books was kind. Strict and insightful, but kind. I hope you’ll like the finished work.
