I'm so excited! I wrote the last words at roughly 1:30 am on December 17--which was the last of several very late nights for me, as I was determined that I would be finished in time to enjoy the Christmas holidays with my family.
I sweated blood and tears onto the page for this book, and I can't wait to make it shiny and perfect and send it out into the world so that one day I will be able to share it with all of you. These characters are so dear to me, it's a bittersweet delight to say goodbye to them--for now. Because seriously, there's a ton of editing to do still. --- All of which can wait for a little while as I rest and eat turkey and play with kiddo and snuggle with hubby in front of the television for a few nights.
Having said that, however, I do have some critiques to do, some work for my new editor at Ellora's Cave, and I'm behind on a few blogs...
But not now. Now we're going to have a CHRISTMAS PARTY!!
Everyone who comments on this post to tell me what they've asked Santa to bring for Christmas will be entered into my Contest for a cool basket filled with cool stuff, including a fabulous CD from singer Angela Scappatura whose voice is simply amazing! (Other treats include: Christmas goodies and great books!!) Contest will be open until Monday, at which time I'll post a winner.
