Yesterday was a long day at work. Okay, it was a normal day. But it felt long.

Until I got one of THE emails I had been waiting for.

My edits on my first NF book.

The book sold last year (Nov) to Prufrock Press for a 2011 pub date. It was so far away that while it was exciting, it didn’t feel real.

I turned in the manuscript in Feb and learned the date would move up to Fall 2010. That was super exciting, but it still didn’t feel real.

I kept thinking it wouldn’t feel like it was happening until I have a cover, etc.

But yesterday, reading the editorial letter and reviewing the changes and I knew…..


Oh! And I have a new title:

Emotional Intensity in Gifted Children: Learning to Cope With Your Gifted Child’s Outbursts

And, in a few SHORT MONTHS….

I will REALLY hold it in my hands!

Does it feel real for you yet?

  1. That’s awesome! Fall will be here before we know it, I still can’t believe it’s JUNE already! Didn’t the snow just melt like 2 days ago?

    Congrats on the book and edits. Any surprises in the edits they’re asking for?

    1. actually – the edits were great! Nothing too surprising…but I have lots of words to add.
