Submitting TODAY!

You may have noticed my absence from AW. For the last 18 months I've been working on my fourth book. I fully expected to be done with it by August/September of this year, but preparing materials for photography stretched it out another 4 months.

The good news is, I've just boxed it up and will be shipping it off to my publisher today. For the first time in 18 months I can take a deep breath and think about something else without feeling guilty about procrastinating.

The final stats are: 110,300 words, 14.5 lbs of yarn in the knitted samples, 553 image files.

Let the wild rumpus begin!

Thanks for all the good wishes, everybody. I'm off to meet my husband for champagne and oysters (let's hope he remembers).

And even better, I got confirmation on Friday that the two boxes, containing the ms. with 110,300 words, outline, CD (with all the images, image lists, and docs), and the 14.5 lbs of knitted up samples, arrived intact at the publishers office.

Now the waiting begins...

Maggie, that's great! Congrats on finishing it, and that it got to the publisher in one piece.
