Big Trees and Small Bushes

I'm no doubt you've all been asking yourselves quite how the current economic jitters are likely to affect Mongolia.  Well, here's the answer.

And sorry it's been a bit quiet on here lately.  I've been dutifully working away on the latest draft of The Outcast, and the good news (for me, at least) is that I've just delivered the manuscript to Peter, my agent, and to Nic at Quercus.  So I can now take a short breather until the revisions start...

What great news! Glad you have had your nose to the grindstone. I hope Nic gets cracking straight away...(I met him a few months ago and he seemed a very nice person: we had a brief exchange about the "importance of the editor").

Thanks, Maxine - hope it lives up to expectations! Not sure whether it's a good thing or not, but 'The Outcast' is shaping up to be rather longer than the previous books so at least there's plenty of it!

As for the importance of the editor, I ought to give more recognition not only to Peter, my agent, and to Nic for their enthusiasm and perspicacity, but also to the excellent Gillian Holmes who provided superb editorial support on the first two books - not least for her genius at spotting even the tiniest inconsistency in plotting or timing!
