JENNY: And now a word from our editor . . .

Well, I WANTED to post the first scene but cooler heads prevailed and said wait until we hear from Jen our goddess of an editor and today we heard and her exact words were:


No, kidding, that's what her e-mail said. So Krissie and Eileen and I said, "Yahoo." Then she said it was "brilliant" and "seamless" and we said "Yahoo" again twice. And then she said she'd be sending the revision letter, which is also good news because she's a terrific editor and she'll tell us how to make it better. I know that sounds incredibly Pollyanna-ish, but I've been working with the woman for ten years, and trust me, she'll make it better.

So now we're waiting for the revision stuff. And of course, Eileen just left for Italy, and she doesn't know if she'll have internet where she's going, soooooooo . . .

We'll let you know what happens.

Publishing is kind of a hurry-up-and-wait game so what you're experiencing waiting around is what we experience, too. Makes you feel all special and in the know, doesn't it?
