    WTG, Lisa. I think that's an honor, definitely a tribute to the quality of your book.

    Heh, at least we're starting off the new year with some punch.

    Happy Camper, I'm curious about why you are doing an LLC for your contract. Would you mind telling me? I've never thought of that, and I'm wondering what the benefits are and if it is common. Thank you.

    I hope so, Tri, I'm in an awfully weird space with it all right now. I can't say that I ever really thought about how it would feel to be in this process, but I don't think it feels anything like I would have expected it to feel.

    Got my copyedits today. I haven't had the nerve to open them up and look yet. It's all done electronically, so there's no red pencil or anything. I'm afeared.
    Good luck Tas!

    Hi Phoenix,

    This is what my taxation lawyer had to say:

    "We recommend forming an LLC because an LLC combines the tax advantages and management flexibility of a partnership with the liability protection of a corporation. Moreover, forming an LLC has become a popular alternative for sole proprietors and partnerships that have thought about forming a corporation in order to protect personal assets. LLCs also avoid “double taxation” because the income of the LLC itself is not taxed at the corporate level."

    I hope this helps.

    As far as I'm concerned, that's the best part of the whole fricken deal. I love to pay homage to the buds that inspired/rooted for me all along.

    I have a Word doc started with people I want to acknowledge so I don't forget them when I get to that point. Gotta love electronic post-it notes.

    Got my contract questions answered to my satisfaction. Am printing and mailing them today.

    Huh. Weird email attachment thing. When I opened the first contract in preview, it said "36 pages" But when I printed it out just now, it said "20 pages". I forgot the email preview enlarges things. a 20-page contract does sound a little more normal.

    Another Snoopy dance for Lily

    On another note, I'm just realized I don't really know what I'm supposed to do with my ARCs when I get them. I don't know how many there will be, and I also don't know how to dole them out. I've had about 5 book review bloggers request one, and my first thought was a first come, first serve basis, but I don't know if that's what I should follow. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
