Swiftly proofs

By Adam Roberts | December 14, 2007
Categories: Chitchat

The proofs for Swiftly are here, and I'm going through them with a fine tooth comb. A toothcomb that is fine. A comb with fine teeth. One of them. Well, I say that ... The fact is I'm rubbish at reading proofs, so my wife (who has The Gift when it comes to proofreading; if she were a superhero then reading proofs would be her superpower) is doing it for me. Many thanks to her.

In other news, I'm thirty-thousand words into Yellow Blue Tibia and am enjoying myself. Better, today is the last day of RHUL term, so I'll have (give or take things like the birth of a son) a relatively free run at writing for the next few weeks.

Yes, the birth-of-a-son thing. Today, as well as being the last day of Michaelmas term, is Rachel's due-date. No sign of the baby yet, but presumably any day now.

    I did so, indeed. The first chapter of the new novel is the (slightly altered) title chapter of that collection.
