How to Write a Book in 17 Days – Season 5, Bonus Episode for Saturday 25th February 2023.

Show notes for this week's episode …

Please note: Word counts are approximate and may vary from those recorded in the writing diaries – this is due to discrepancies between Scrivener and Word word counts and alterations/corrections that I may have made after recording. It took me 17 x days to write a first draft. Prior to publication,  I will edit the book, my wife will edit the book, it will go to a professional editor, then I will check it again and, finally, it will go to a group of 20 x ARC readers who will check it again. I will then give it a final read before I publish.

The book is being edited by Claire Cronshaw at
