Frankfurt Book Fair

All over the publishing world executives will getting ready for the deal-making that is the Frankfurt International Book Fair which kicks off later this week. I checked the rights database on the website but no sign of The Lady Soldier on there so maybe next year I'll have an agent, or go to Frankfurt myself. Meanwhile struggling authors around the globe are doing their copy edits.

I'm still reviewing the copy edits for Perfidy and Perfection but actually it's proving enlightening. This copy editor is really good. I'm learning things. About correct use of the semi-colon and such like.

    So what is the correct use of a semi-colon? :)

    It is used to join together two senetnces which could be their own sentences but you want kind of joined together because they are related.
