A Milestone

I finished the first draft of 'book three' today and am feeling pretty good about it.  (I basically finished this one in six months, which, given my track record, is mind-boggling.  I guess a little planning goes a long way...)  My agent has already seen the first 200 pages and loved them, so I have high hopes that the revision process won't be too painful.  After that, it remains to be seen whether my editor likes it...

This all seems so very strange...and not quite real.  I sold last August; 'book two' is due October 1, at which time, AUSTEN-TATIOUS will still be four months from publication (January 31st release date for those of you keeping track...which I fervently hope is ALL of you!).  It's hard to imagine starting work on a new book in just a few weeks, but that's the way it's going to have to be I guess.

I should be getting a glimpse of the cover for AUSTEN-TATIOUS in the next few weeks, so maybe it'll help keep things in perspective a little bit.  Then again, maybe not.



Either way, I feel a little like a diva right now!

You should feel like a diva right now! :)

You should also have a cupcake to celebrate. Divas are always allowed to have cupcakes.
