Blue Skies … nearly there

blue-skies

Blue Skies is nearly complete. I have the editing to go and I’m positive that I’ll make the September 1 deadline – which is fantastic for me and Allen and Unwin, as they’ve already got the freelance editor, Ali Lavau, booked to start work on the manuscript, basically as soon as it arrives.

I’ve really enjoyed writing Blue Skies – it’s taken a fair amount of research, which, as resident of the Esperance Shire and farmer, has been a wonderful learning time for me.

I now know so much more about the history of Esperance, it’s land and pioneers. That knowledge I can pass on to my children, which hopefully will ensure that the history isn’t lost as generations pass.
