I just emailed my new book and am about to upchuck. Signing off on a manuscript is akin to mailing a fragile puppy to the other side of the world.

I realize there will always be writing to be improved, edits to be made, and typos to be corrected, etc. BUT, the truth is, I had to let it go.
The feeling is sorta like when we sent our children off to college. We're never ready, but we hope they are. I pray any mistakes will be miraculously corrected, and the book will be perfect.

More soon, I'm off to sleep, Milam

Today I will begin my final run through on the new book. I just got the edits back from Jackie and cannot wait to see her comments.
First it's off to the gym for me. As usual, I gained a few pounds working on my story. Look for news of a release date in the next few weeks.

In the meantime, I do have some delightful events on my calendar, one is a talk in Brazelton, Georgia, with another in Huntsville, Alabama. I always enjoy meeting readers, especially after a long winter alone in my study.
It's akin to being a momma bear as she exits her cave in springtime! Joy!!!
