Where Night School is now

Because Night School isn’t published until January in the UK – and later in other countries – I want to keep you up to date with what’s happening behind the scenes. This is my first ever novel, and I’m finding it all fascinating.

The book has already gone through several edits. First my editor (the beautiful and brilliant Samantha Smith at Atom) worked with me on perfecting the ending. Next, she did line edits, where she looked for small issues with the language or the story.

After those were fixed,  a copy editor read the book looking for typos or anything Sam and I might have missed.

Yesterday I sent the copy edited manuscript back to Atom. In a few weeks we’ll get corrected proofs back. A proof reader will read those for any typos or problems we all missed.

Seriously: It so happens.

And then…

It goes to print!

Meanwhile I’m writing Chapter 6 of Book 2…

But more about that later.


  1. Wow, this is SO AWESOME!!!

  2. I anxiously await news of U.S. publisher so that my bookclub can read this! Hopefully the Kindle version will release the same week as the book? (please, please)
