I've got them in my hands - the proofs for Dark Enchantment! Whoop!
Not a single change was requested to my manuscript as handed in. And having read through the proofs once I can see only a few peripheral alterations* (My wayward grammar has been whipped into official shape, and a number of "cunt"s have become slightly more decorous). Do you know what this means? - Finally I have managed to get a full-on Minotaur story accepted by Black Lace!** Yep. After all these years!
Gosh. I have finally learned to fly under the radar.
Rather unfortunately my family are visiting this week. Believe me, close reading of pornographic proofs with one's parents and a 5-yr-old nephew hanging about the place is rather tricky. But I've got to do it somehow...
*Well, they got my name wrong on the title page. But it's not the first time and at least I have a chance to point it out before going to print, unlike in the 2nd ed. of Cruel Enchantment!
