First, it was my journey to Lancaster for the RNA Weekend Conference. What an excellent couple of days which began with Orion telling us they have now opened a digital-first imprint, Dash, and are accepting submissions. Most of the other sessions I attended were equally helpful, from Author Branding, to Cover Design and the Slush Pile Slam. As always, it was great to catch up with old friends and new, including meeting fellow blogger and writer Carol Bevitt at last!

With all that travelling and busyness, you'd think I was hardly likely to get much writing done. However, with my love of writing on trains, it was perfect! I'm now almost through the much-needed second edit on my latest novel and can see how it is structured and if it stays consistent. I love this stage, once the whole story is actually written down. It's one of the disadvantages of being a pantster as I need to let the characters develop as they interact with each other. Look out for the cover reveal soon!

Hope you've had a good summer,
