Pens down!


Pens down! All the writing AND all the editing and proofreading are finished! \o/
Solving Cryptic Crosswords For Dummies (the in-depth 'how to' book, with 16 full crosswords) and Cryptic Crosswords For Dummies (a companion volume, with 56 crosswords) are FINALLY DONE! The books will be out in Australia, the UK, and the USA in August this year.

My god, what an effort ... I started work in the middle of last December, so both books were written in just over 4 months. In the past 6 days I've solved and edited every single one of the clues in the second book (about 1,500 of the little toads).

My red pen for editing literally ran out of ink on the last page, too! LOL

I don't have to work on weekends or evenings now ... it'll take a bit of getting used to!

  1. Once Wiley have got a page on their site, with the cover art and so on, you should be able to pre-order directly from them, I think ...
