The Serpent King - crossing the finishing line

Over the last month or so I've been busy putting the finishing touches to The Serpent King. First there was the copy-edit to go through, and then the final proofs to check for those tiny errors that always lurk . . .

'How did we miss such obvious typo?' Cleo asked. 'We must have read this text fifty tims!'
Ryan shook his his head. 'It's a total mystery'.
I'm very grateful to all the people who've been involved; brilliant editors, copy-editors and proof-readers all play a vital part in making sure the book is as good as it can be.

And then, very excitingly, a chance to look through the rough versions of the forty chapter head illustrations by super-brilliant illustrator, Leo Hartas, and give feedback for the final versions.
