Revision Week

I've got my editorial revisions for Betrayed, so the next two weeks it's head down. First I have to figure out the technicalities of using word tracker, which might just gobble up most of those two weeks.

And, ooh, my editor has suggested I create a map of the Galloway and Dumfries area where Betrayed is set. Well, I could spend a fun two weeks just doing that. When I started writing Betrayed, I spent an awful lot of time browsing through medieval maps of Scotland and it was absolutely amazing to see how maps were defined in those times. Some are quite detailed, while others merely have a few squibbles and lines. I guess my map will be closer to the latter, but will hopefully give a good idea of where my characters have been.
