The Editing Process Continues!

Here it is: the unbound galley for my new novel, ICE COLD KILL. At left are copy editing forms. The book is scheduled for release from Minotaur Books in March.

I’m busy writing the sequel right now! But first, I need to do what’s called a “first pass” of the manuscript. Despite the name, it’s actually almost the last opportunity to do any major editing on a novel before it bets bound. By now, it’s been read, re-read and edited by myself, my editor and the copy editors.

Now I’ll swing through it one last time to look for egregious errors. After that, it’s ready for binding.
