Editing

Working on the edits for my fourth novel, which I am so excited about. It's due to come out in April but I can't say any more than that at the minute. I've read some fantastic books lately too and will put up my reviews soon. Reviewing for fellow authors gives me such pleasure as I know how it feels to spot that you have received a new review only to begin wondering 'is it good, or is it bad?'
