the hard part  

I have rewritten the hard part! I–

…holy shit, guys. I just got email from my editor. You know how I asked if, y’know, you could try to send THE QUEEN’S BASTARD back to print before the end of May?

You did it. It’s going back to press, “based on early good sales.”

Thank you. Thank you, thank you, *thank you*, all so very much. I’m genuinely sitting here stunned and teary-eyed and sniffly, because wow. *Thank* you.

Um. Jeez. Uh. What was I talking about? Rewriting the hard part! I managed to get the bit I’d skipped done, and while it could use a little more polishing, it’s done! I’ve got about five chapters left to revise, and then … I don’t know, fifty or seventy-five pages more to write (and the prologue to rewrite, got to remember to do that) and then the book is done. And gosh, for some reason, I’m feeling REALLY INSPIRED to go do my revisions right now, so I think I’m gonna go do that. o.o

*reels off, stunned*

Currently reading (and enjoying) it.

My eldest was looking at the cover (she wants to borrow it once I've read it) and asked
a) was it wrong that to think the girl on the cover was hot
b) did anyone else think the girl looked like Dawn from Buffy

Thanks again for the gift of the words.

You know, she's right, she *does* look a bit like Dawn. Think Michelle Trachtenberg would like to play the part? :)

chuckles - could be good. So if they were to film one of your sets would there be much rejoicing?
