An update or two

Eating far too much

Myself and several colleagues (and one now ex-colleague) went out for a meal to send him off last night. Bye James. We went to a restaurant floating (half beached) on the River Nene and lots of food was had by all. Their set menus provided us with full bellies last night and aching bellies this morning (well for me anyway). It has been a long time since I was last there, but the food was still as amazing as ever. I can't get enough of their 'nana Fritters and ice cream. Anyway, if you're in Peterborough (the UK one not the Canadian or Australian ones) I'd recommend a visit to East, you won't be disappointed. Should get a free meal for the plug. No? OK then.

Cover Design Concepts

I spoke to my publisher and the design concepts should be ready around the end of the month, which will be cool. I'm intrigued to see what Alex comes up with based on my ideas and thoughts. I did my best to describe what I can see in my minds eye, but we'll see if she can get that onto paper.

Manuscript Progress

Well, it's not quick at the moment. Family stuff still taking priority (and last night's feast), but have made some progress. Am now at just over 56,200 words and expect to maybe get to 60k before my weekend away next Friday, where I want to see just how much I can do when I'm not distracted.
