It hasn’t quite sunk in yet, but give me a few minutes… or a few days. Okay, give me until the end of March, after which it will be time to panic all over again, but for much better reasons.
That fantasy novel I’ve been proofreading and editing, the one that’s a massive beast of a tome that comes in at over 240K words — it’s done. Sent off to the author just a little while ago. Next, the author takes a look, finds that I’ve missed nothing (went over it with a metaphorical fine-toothed comb, although apparently I was supposed to use a red lightsaber instead of a red pen — who knew?), and sends it on to the people who will handle converting this manuscript into a book. By the end of March (or sooner), there should be a paperback edition. Definitely an e-book.
I believe the word I am looking for is Huzzah!
