Proposed!–and French Versions

Posted By on August 18, 2010

The proposal is back with the lovely editor! I’m planning to read and swim and read and maybe read a little. I might squeeze in a movie. Or I might read.

Not that I’m giddy. Of course, the moment I hit the send button, the doubt piranha began pecking away, but I’m tossing them tofu. I so hope it’s right this time. Barring that, I hope it’s close enough that I haven’t annoyed the lovely editor! 🙂

I always envy writers who send a ms., feeling gleeful because they know it’s a great book (or proposal). I never feel that way, but I do feel I managed to beat down the doubts. I didn’t waste time overthinking. (Hope I shouldn’t have taken more time with that.) And I tried to follow the editor’s suggestions. And it’s back in a timely fashion.

My question now is tough. Do I look through the 90-some pages I’ve written on this book or do I start a new idea? Could do both!

And–on a tangent, see the book over there? It’s the French version of Temporary Father. I love that story–so ecstatic the French picked it up. And don’t they have amazing, too-beautiful covers?
