Yep, I’ve finally finished beating and polishing it into shape and sent it off to my publisher. Of course, there’s a lot to be done before it hits the bookstores, including editing, proofing, printing and shipping. But since this milestone is the one that involves the Big Looming Deadline it always feels like the one that needs the most celebrating.
As always, I don’t know when the book is going to hit the stores. All I know is it’ll be sometime in the first half of next year. For more a precise date, nag my publisher. (Not me. Believe it or not, it isn’t true that the more frequently I’m nagged for a release date the more likely it is that I’ll know it. If that was true, I’d be asking everyone to nag me for the answer to much more profound questions about life and the universe.)
Info like release dates, signings and other appearances should appear on the website my publisher created for the purpose – trudicanavan.net – so keep an eye on it.
