Well, the proposal and sample chapters have gone off — now we don’t hold our breath. It’s a very good book IMO. I’d love to write it right now.
I’m off to Continuum 7 in the morning so I’ll probably not post again for a week or so. In which time nothing much will have happened unless I get the usual hurry up and do XYZ. Have I told you how like being in the army writing is? You wait. And then rush, because having had a manuscript for 12 months the publisher now suddenly discovers they have six weeks before publishing date. So you work frantically. And then wait. Especially for answers in that infinitely elastic 6 week they have to tell you if they like the latest proposal… Or if it is money you’re waiting for… wait longer 😉
