I've completed all my proof-reading and revising of the manuscript, diagrams, etc and today it's going back to my editor. (Hey doesn't that sound good? Almost like I'm a real writer!) See it sitting on the doormat waiting for someone to come and collect it? Bye-bye manuscript. Have a safe journey.
The next time I see it apparently will be in mid January when it will be sent back all laid out complete with photos etc, looking very much like a real book.
