The Waiting Game -- Phase Two

Picture this:

You write a book, you query a publisher, you submit the work, they make an offer, you accept, and a contract gets signed. Ever wonder what happens next?

Yeah, me too.

So far, apparently nuttin’.

Okay, kidding.

It’s only been a couple weeks, and I did snail mail the contract. Still…I’m anxious. Anxious for a release date. Anxious for the dreaded revisions request. Hey, I gotta life going on here. Sixteen days until cruise time, a couple months until Atlanta…and let’s not get started on the fact that my birthday “season” is practically around the corner.

A girl could get nervous if deadlines end up being closer than they appear in the mirror.
