I’ve completed the edit of my revisions to the Perihelix and sent it to my editor.
I’ve rewritten the first chapter, changing the start substantially (and will mean a lot of edits to book 2 to take out reference/consequences of that), and introducing Dolores, Maggie and Aramintha more thoroughly, although I always intend them to have somewhat mysterious pasts. I’ve also made it slightly clearer (I hope) which direction the travels take them, but working in 3D space means that the reader either needs to imagine it more, or just accept that there’s a long way between places. I must admit, I’ve never been concerned about the relationship of different planetary systems to each other in Star Trek or Star Wars.
Now to see what my new editor makes of it.
