The Jerusalem Puzzle update
I completed the latest draft of The Jerusalem Puzzle two weeks ago.
On Monday the 3rd September I will start a 2 week edit of the complete 400 pages, incorporating some major changes as inspired by my new editor at Harper Collins.
The suggestions were general, think more about the ending, the relationship. They have challenged me to add depth to the relationship between Sean and Isabel and to heighten the ending to include something even more dramatic, which will resonate beyond the book itself.
I like the challenge of being edited. The first emotional reaction is to resent any interference and to fear the work involved in making the changes, but soon after I saw the benefits that these changes will bring.
