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…..
IT IS REAL!!!
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?
