Light on the Horizon

First of all, a big hug to everyone who made me feel better about kicking off a few burdens last week. Whew! I'm relieved.

Second of all, the LDS Storymaker's conference is almost here!!! I can hardly wait to kick back with my good friend M. Gray (who I've never met)!

And finally, my editor says I have probably just one more revision before we go to copy edits.

Sweet relief! There were times when we were revising my novel that I felt for certain WiDo was going to cancel the contract. No one ever said this, but sometimes I was afraid they were thinking, "The book requires too many changes, this author isn't easy to work with, this really isn't that good at all, what were we thinking offering a contract?" So for me, it's like, finally. We are in the final stretch. I can't wait until I turn in that last revision, when my editor says, "It's ready!"

I cannot wait to be done. I cannot wait to tell you all, "The book is at the press!"

You'll love Mary Gray. When my daughter and I drove up to Northern Virginia, an hour and a half drive for us, we met her at her house. She is absolutely the most gracious and interesting person. And congrats on your book!! I'm looking forward to reading it.

Talli--I know,that's what I keep telling myself. "Remember the goal, remember the goal!"

We're almost there, Sarahjayne!

Ann--I already love Mary! She's awesome!

The final stretch, the last revision. May the right words, right deletions, right everything come easily and quickly to your mind. And your book be a bestseller. Roland
