Contracted

My editor contacted me.  The press is giving me the book contract.

I may be too shocked to be elated just yet.  I think I'm going to go home and mix myself a nice drink whilst I ponder the minutiae of deadlines and back matter.  Meanwhile, I'll let Daler Mehndi do the crazy ecstatic dancing for me.  Now, where did I leave my satin robe and turban...?

    Also, that video wins the internet. I may never be able to stop watching it.

  2. Excellent news!

    I have no idea why this is calling me anonymous. That's Dame Eleanor to you.

    1. We humbly ask your forgiveness, Dame Eleanor. The doorkeeper is brand new; we'll give him a talking-to.

    2. Thanks for the welcome. I probably should have mentioned that I'm a long time reader and first time poster. I'm still learning academic online etiquette (though I'm a master at it in real life (joke)).

    1. Yes, naturally! The title is certainly not appropriate for a pseudonymous blog; I think "the book" will do just fine for now! Lord willin' and the creek don't rise, in a few years I can start snarking around about "my first book."
