The determined time

Wow, February really rushes by, doesn't it? It's been almost two weeks again since my last post, so, here I go again. :)

After Craig's death, I announced on the Outpost Gallifrey that Time's Champion was still going forward, and that I was the co-author. I received a lot of support and enthusiasm from fans on the site which really bouyed me at the time. I also received a message from Simon Guerrier, who told me of his interest in trying publish the book through Big Finish's Short Trips range, but he was kind enough to be honest enough to tell me the chances of this were slim, and in fact, when he checked with the BBC, it didn't work out. Still, I made a new friend. :)

However, I also got word from David J Howe, offering to help publish the book, in this case as a charity release for the British Heart Foundation. David also offered to help out with editing of the book. I accepted without a doubt. :)

David and I arranged to meet at the GallifreyOne convention in February 2007, and there we discussed these details and what he hoped me to do. In essence, that was to finish the manuscript. So, I went to work, hoping to finish this by May of that year. It took until August 27th. :)
