View Full Version : Just a wee bit of news

I signed the contract for my book "Vlado Kreslin and Me" in October, and I met with my editors last week. I'm in the final bits of editing and then off it goes to the translator-- end of next week, I'm guessing. Then the photos will be added, and it'll come out in August.

The book ended up at Mondrijan Založba in Ljubljana, Slovenia, which makes since because Vlado is a Slovene rock musician. My editors seem to really like it, as does Vlado.

Pinch me. :)

Pinch me.

Maybe this is close enough: :e2stooges

But seriously, congratulations!

Thanks, y'all. I really appreciate it.

Of all the ways to get published, I never thought I'd be doing it this way-- in a country where I don't even speak the language (yet).

callalily, I always need pinching!

Thanks, Cathy! I'm so jazzed, but I'm not sure I believe it. I sat there Thursday, watching the editorial meeting and thinking, That's my book they're talking about. My book. Wow...

Phaeal: It's awesome to see progress! And it's awesome to have your editor tell you she really likes the cuts you've made, and it's awesome to have only a few paragraphs to rewrite and then know it will be ready for the translator...

It's scary too...
