Fingers (and Toes) Crossed

First of all, thank you to all of you who responded to my previous post with suggestions on how to construct a response to readers. I've taken this into account, and just 90 seconds ago sent off my response to Fabulous Editor. It ended up being three single-spaced pages long. Nothing bad or obstinate -- just erring on the side of caution by providing probably too much detail. The book goes before the press board in three weeks. At that point, it's an up or down vote as to whether or not to offer me a contract.

((deep breath))

So, wish me luck. And while you're at it, you might send some good wishes towards Medieval Woman, who is getting ready to have her first publisher meetings this weekend. Hopefully we'll be able to offer support in person at the blogger meetup!

Oh, Notorious - thou art lovely! Thanks so much for the link and well wishes - btw, I would LOVE to read your proposal and will email you tomorrow when I sit down to begin tweaking!

Good, better, and best of luck to you with the response!

Good luck. If you have some downtime, check out goodreads.com. It's just a fun virtual bookshelf community. You add books you've read, are reading, and plan to read and then can try to link up with others who share interests. I started about a month ago. Again, good luck.

Best of luck! I can imagine it's going to be a long three weeks for you, so I hope you have lots of enjoyable distractions lined up.
