I think I’ll live … providing I remember to zoom the page a little. At 100%, the print is very small, and my lovely editor has lots to say. I was beginning to flag when comment 88 arrived at the end of chapter one: ‘Lovely … great opening scenes. Sets the atmosphere for the adventure to unfold.’
I’m in good hands. If I ever do a sequel, I’ll know what to avoid.
