Granted...the work is not done. I've been working on some of the editing this week, before turning in the manuscript on Friday. And after that, my editors, bless them both, will come back with more edits. And after that, my publicist will give me things to do.
If you're looking for a sense of completion, do not go into publishing.
But I'm excited. SS goes into print in July, and I'm very much looking forward to seeing the final product. I'm pretty proud of having published a book. But Jayne's lonely. She needs a friend on the shelf. And she'll have that friend come September.
What can I tell you about it? Not much, aside from the fact that I'm pleased with how it came out, and the ending TOTALLY took me by surprise. Sent me into a panic, actually. But it's good stuff.
In other news:
1.) My basil plant died. I honestly think it had a disease or something.
2.) Make sure you enter the Simply Sara contest! Details are here.
3.) Danny and I are going away this weekend! No computers, no book, no school, no work - I'm just a little crazy excited. I am, however, taking my camera, since we'll be going to the Oregon Garden, which is one of my favorite places in the state.
4.) Isn't this cute? I'm thinking 4th of July picnic with a basket of daisies or something.
5.) Watched The Young Victoria. Loved it! Thoughtful and lovely and observant. Totally recommend.
That's all for now - I made dinner last night, and should repeat the experience tonight (shocker!). But it's lunch time now, and for once, it's not ravioli.
