Yes! Another baby step in the birth of my firstborn . . . I’ve been assigned an editor. She has emailed me and seems like a real human and everything. Her name is Samantha Van Walraven.
I sent her my most recent revision and then I suppose she’ll read it and tell me about the hundred thousand things I need to fix. I can’t wait! I’m ready to slash and burn.
Also, I have an appointment to call the publishing house’s CFO on Tuesday to go over my contract. I have a couple of questions I’d like to clarify and then I’m signing that dotted line. I’ve gotten a lot of great advice from writer friends about it and actually feel pretty comfortable with it now.
