Manuscript is in the mail

I mailed my book manuscript today to the editor who's been expressing interest.  I think it could stand to be another 5000 words longer, but it's close enough – check out that word count meter, people! – that I decided it was better to mail it on deadline than to hem and haw for another few weeks while fine-tuning the shorter chapters.  Surely it would not be a good precedent to set for myself by dawdling on deadlines when the editor (...and outside readers?) understand that things will need to be tweaked anyway.

I hope they like it.  :O

P.S. to Dr. Crazy: You and I totally need to hit some concerts together.  I'm in for half the gas money.  :D


  1. Hooray! Congratulations on the completion of an absolutely enormous task!

    (I know that there will be tasks ahead, yes, blah blah. But THIS one is HUGE and is DONE. Hooray!)

  2. Whoo-Hoo!!!!!! Lookit you go! You rock! I bow down before your productivity!!!!!

    I hope you go out and do something celebratory. :)

    (this is ajnabieh--for some reason it's not letting me use Open ID.)

  7. Congrats! Drinks and dancing, all around.

    And since I just finished my gin, I'll pour myself another, on your account.
