This week the line-editor and I complete the manuscript

photo copyDriving home from Dim Sum Sunday the weekend after Thanksgiving, we came to a road so beautiful, so golden with autumn, that I made The Mister pull over and hopped out of the car to snap this picture.

As it is I can barely contain myself, because—drum roll please—this is the week the editor and I finish the novel.

The art for the jacket has been photographed, the cover has been designed, the blurbs are in place, the book’s pages will be laid out under the keen eye of one of my favorite graphic artists…

How do I feel? I know you haven’t inquired, but I’m going to to tell ya anyway. Elated!

Have a wonderful week, V

    Warm regards, George x

    • Yesterday when the last notes came in I was kind of in a daze…
      I’m still not precisely sure of the release date, I have a vague idea, but when it’s solidified I’ll send up a flare.
