The final piece of the puzzle
Editing is the final, and very important, stage before publication of my novels
I have just finished my first edit and disentangled a few loose threads. It is inevitable that there will be the odd occasion when continuity goes awry; for example where someone travels by car to a location then travels back by bike. However, strangely, in this book it seems that DS Nina Featherstone is getting quite forgetful and I have had to remove occasions when she has repeated herself, picked up an item belonging to the victim but never mentioned it again or had to rush off to see the victim’s spouse, not once but twice for the same reason. Perhaps the poor woman needs a break; after all working full-time with three children can be quite exhausting!
