Spellcraft Book Update

If I write only 2K on every working day this month, I’ll hit the required target. I feel much relieved.

I sent Ceri home from the writing jam today with an electronic copy of the text so far. I need someone to read through it just to tell me that it makes sense. I’m fairly certain that it does, but I’m so close to it now that I can’t be an objective judge. I know I address similar topics in various chapters (i.e. herbs in different uses/formats) and I don’t think I repeat information; I’m of the opinion that it flows decently. I just need someone else to confirm it for me. I might also be missing something evident that I take for granted. Ceri will be able to point that out.

HRH says hello to all.

Orchestra tonight! I practiced the Bach today.

Good – I Need the Shelf Space…

Is every book going to be bigger than the previous one?

No, definitely not, or book seven would be around the weight of a baby hippopotamus. According to the plan for book six, it will be quite a bit shorter than ‘Order of the Phoenix’. I am not going to swear on my children’s lives that that is going to be the case, but I am 99% certain of it.

J.K. Rowling has her own official web site, which I’ve never even thought to check out until today.

I have an official ISBN. I am grinning like an idiot.
