Yellowcake Summer is in Second Draft state!

After many, many hours of editing over the past couple of weeks, I’ve managed to get the ms. of Yellowcake Summer up to what I call ‘Second Draft’ status. This means that I’ve cut out nearly 15,000 words of the original 90,000 word long ms., hopefully losing nothing in the process. Now the novel goes off to beta readers and the publisher, IP, and I have a well-earned rest for the next 20 hours until I start back at work for 2013!

In case you don’t know, this new novel is the sequel to Yellowcake Springs, which was published by Glass House Books in 2011 and was shortlisted for the prestigious Norma K Hemming Award in 2012. Yellowcake Summer is a direct sequel but there won’t be a third volume (even though Yellowcake Winter would make a great title, don’t you think?). Nope, it’s a duology or a pair or whatever you call a two book series 🙂

I had a lot of fun writing Yellowcake Summer and I imagine it’ll be a fun read too. I can’t wait for you to read it!
