First for 2012

Today I hit the ‘send’ button on a new manuscript that whisked it off to my editor at Penguin. This is a sequel to the WWll novel that is hitting bookstores for April 1. Always a lovely feeling of relief to watch the little blue line load the email and hear that reassuring sound of it whizzing away. However, euphoria is quickly replaced by a sense of loss, nausea and anxiety. And it never changes, no matter how many manuscripts one delivers….at least not for me. Anyway, I shall give myself one day of this….lazy coffee, recipe hunting in favourite cookbooks and perhaps a bit of fiction on the back deck. Tomorrow I shall get knee deep into a new adult fantasy.
