Countdown to Dreaming Creek

On the one hand I'm excited that the publication date of my novel is drawing near. On the other hand, I'm a bit sad to report that that the official release date has been moved back, from Sept. 28 to Oct. 28. On the other other hand (for those of you with three), I'm thrilled that it's going to be Oct. 28th instead of Dec. 28th, which is the date the publisher was talking about for a while. THAT would have sucked.

So the thing I'm waiting for at this point is the editor-in-chief's line edits and general notes so that I can see what she has to say and what work she still thinks the book needs. She said she would get that to me by the end of the coming weekend, so I'm checking my email every half hour in case it comes in any sooner. I'm sure by time Sunday arrives I'll be checking it every five minutes.

That's about all for now. More as further progress warrants.

Sorry to hear the date's been pushed back, but that just leaves more time for you to plan the release party.... Congrats on moving forward!

Step away from the refresh button. Slowly.
Just step away.
