Writing The Wedding that Changed Everything: The Final Stages

I kept a little diary while writing my eighth book, The Wedding That Changed Everything, which I'll be sharing on the blog during the run up to publication.

Oh, the relief when my editor told me my book was moving onto the copy editing stage! This meant no more revisions. No rewrites. No burning the laptop!

The book has now been copy-edited and I've had one final proofread before I sent it back to my editor for the final time. And do you know what? All that hard work was worth it. The writing and characterisation is so much better than that initial manuscript I sent to my editor back in September. Her revision notes were spot on and I now have a book I'm really proud of. I can't wait for people to read Emily's story - I just hope they like it!

We've had the cover reveal, which has had a really positive response (because it's SO GORGEOUS), the book is up for pre-order, and reviewers have their early copies from Netgalley. So now it's just a case of waiting. And gnawing my fingernails down...

Love happens when you least expect it…

Emily Atkinson stopped believing in fairy tales a long time ago! She’s fed up of dating frogs in order to track down her very own Prince Charming, despite the best efforts of her matchmaking best friend…

But now she’s been invited to the wedding of the year at the enchanting Durban Castle, and perhaps bumping into a knight in shining armour isn’t as far away as she thought!

Will Emily survive the wedding and walk away an unscathed singleton – or finally find her own happily-ever-after?
