I am a genius.  

I’ve gotten through all but the last 40 pages or so of the manuscript, and I have realized that the problem is not with the book. It’s with the ending as I have it synopsized. It’s *all wrong*. And now I know what’s right, and it will be *awesome*. It’s the ending the book deserves. It will make it feel like a proper story. And it’s not any longer than my wrong ending would’ve been (it’s not any shorter, either) and it’s much much better.

I am *so pleased*. It’s all over but the writing, as Trent just said.

*dancie dancie dance*!

I had a moment like that yesterday, when I unpacked an entire part of the plot I didn't know existed. The relief is amazing...

I went into Waterstones to look for TQB but they didn't have it... but... Apparently there have been a lot of people in and the nice lady said she will order lots of copies for their Jervis Street branch.
(so I bought Urban Shamen instead)

Ooh, thank you for buying US instead, and I'm glad people've been in to ask about it! That's good to know! I hope they sell lots when it comes in! :)

I was in Barnes & Noble today, and they had the Queen's Bastard on the shelf in New Releases!

Hooray for the new ending. I'm drooling already.

I picked up TQB today, and browsed the B&N shelves. They had at least a dozen copies on the shelves, and when I put mine on hold Saturday, they had another half dozen already reserved. I hope it sells really well for you.

Wow! Wow, that's a lot of books on the shelves. Thank you for letting me know that! *beams* And I hope you enjoy it!
