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.
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!
