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.
It goes to print!
Meanwhile I’m writing Chapter 6 of Book 2…
But more about that later.
