End of summer, back to work...

The edits have arrived for Undertaking Love, another exciting new step in the process for me. :O)

It's been a long, busy summer at home with the kids so writing has had to take a bit of a back seat, but I'm glad to think that more writing time is just around the corner from this week onwards.

Over the last month I've had horrible computer issues to contend with too, but I'm supposed to be collecting my all mended and perfect lap top in the morning. Please let it be fine! I cannot tell you how much I rely on it, or what a fool I feel for not backing up properly.
Thankfully the mac doctor has been able to restore everything this time, but that is one lesson well and truly learned. Back up, back up, back up.

I'm diving into the book edits on Wednesday as soon as the kids are back at school.
I'm excited, and nervous too - these are my first round of actual edits and I really want to make them perfect.

More exciting news - the book is pencilled in to come out early in spring 2013, hopefully in March.

I'm crossing my fingers tightly, because that would be just about the best birthday present ever.


  1. Yay! Hope the edits flow quickly and easily!

  2. I feel the pain but sadly my poor laptop was beyond repair. Replaced the Air with a Pro and have an external HD plugged in all the time now so I don't have to even think about backing up - it's become automatic.

    Have fun with the edits!

  3. Man, that sucks Lesa, hope you didn't lose too much. It was the photo's that really bothered me, and the word docs.
    Can you use icloud or time machine? I'm hoping to use one or the other when I get sorted.

  4. Thank goodness for back to school, right? Very best of luck with the edits and I can't wait to hold my copy in my hot little hands!!

  5. I still can't believe it will actually be published, Maya! I don't think it will sink in until the day it comes out. xx
