Congrats, Lisa - it's such a relief when the end is in sight, isn't it?

No cover suggestions from me, I'm afraid - I don't have enough books by other GO authors or annuals of the right kind of age to pinch something from...

Congratulations Lisa, I cannot remember the old version now (its why I keep books, give me a few years and I forget the plot!) so it will be lovely to read it :)

Another book to add to my Xmas list!

Already, Kathye? You are starting early! :D

I'm excited and it's lovely to see you people excited about it too! And of course, the blasted PB has started biting with another idea for a fill in, and I'm desperately trying to fend him off. I'm not sure I want to go straight back on that treadmill, particularly when I'm guiltily aware of my thesis rattling around, waiting for something to be done with it! Choices, choices. Truth is, writing a second fill in would probably be lot quicker than the academic stuff, but I'm tired of getting nagged about not doing anything with my doctoral work!

Pat, several chapters have been replaced entirely AND there's a whole new subplot that was added quite late.... I think it's an improvement. :twisted:

So very true! I wrote the remaining 80% of my current fill-in in three weeks, but can't drag out more than a few paragraphs a day on my doctoral thesis...

Wouldn't it be awfully mean and teasing of me if I didn't say anything? So I won't do that because it's very un-CS-like. No, my next fill-in (I'm not as lucky as Lisa because I don't have a publication period assigned :wink: ) is the term between Jo Returns and New.

Wow, that's fantastic and thank you for the update as I understand you can't spill many beans - and hope you are lucky soon....am dying to read about this term!!!!!

Did I imagine that someone is also writing "Joey and Robin in India" for GGBP?

Thank you, I have certainly loved writing it and look forward to it existing in book form.

Yes, a friend of mine is writing the India story. She began it in 2003, long before NCC published their version, and as GGB had agreed to publish her book, that means there will be two takes on the adventures of Jo and the Robin in India.

Ain't that the truth. Academic writing can be blood from a stone sometimes - I can produce 1000 words plus of fiction in an hour without trying very hard; it takes about three hours to do that for academic stuff. On the other hand, the academic stuff is easier to revise, so swings and roundabouts...

DT is now with the proofreader, or should be heading that way. I know nuffink more than that, I'm afraid...

Some strange literary laws of physics at work, one presumes. Or perhaps alien involvement. The strange thing is, I had to do more checking when I was writing Chalet School to make sure that my tone and phrasing was correct than I need to do with me thesis, so no excuse there.

And :popper: :popper: :popper: :popper: :popper:
