The day of publication feels that little bit closer this weekend – I took delivery yesterday of the ‘flat-page proofs’ of the novel.  It looks lovely, laid out as it will be in the finished article – and so very different to the familiar sight of it in double spaced Times New Roman on A4 paper.  I’ve just started proof-reading … I’ve been given a couple of weeks to go through the whole thing, apparently, and then, after that, once it’s all sent back to Little, Brown, I won’t see it again until it’s all complete and bound and ready to go.   It feels rather like putting one of my children onto a train and waving at them from the station as it pulls away.
