View Full Version : Finished one

08-24-2006, 12:07 AM
Well, I finished one of the books I'm ghostwriting and today I got the galleys for another. Depending on how many breaks I take, I may be a little quiet for the next couple of days... the editor wants a fast turnaround.

Two manuscripts down, one more to go! Cupcakes all around!

Very good! That must feel wonderful. Way to go, lady. :)

Yay Jenna! Congrats! :snoopy: :D

Did someone say cupcakes??

Ooh, happy dance:snoopy:

Drinks for all the non-preggers people, and all the juice Jenna wants :D

wonderful news, Jenna!

08-24-2006, 02:34 AM
Hey, Jenna, that's totally awesome! Bet you're feeling really happy! :) The one that you're getting galleys for-- what's it called? When will it be in bookstores?

Again, congrats on the great news!!

The one I have galleys for is "real" ghostwriting (that is, I'm not allowed to talk about it). The other one I just finished is what I'll call "credited ghostwriting" (I get a "with Jenna Glatzer" credit), so I can mention that one-- that's a memoir for Thomas Nelson called Unbroken, about this gorgeous lady:


(Ha! Sneaked in a plug for my brother's blog.)

Both books are coming out in April. Thanks for asking!

Cool. :)

Yum....ghostwriting cupcakes! Congratulations!

Congrats, Jenna.

Jenna, how hard is it to ghostwrite a book and not be able to point to it when it's out and say, "Hey, I wrote that!"

Awww, c'mon. You can tell US. We can keep a secret. All almost-10,000 of us, plus lurkers!

08-24-2006, 07:36 AM
Oarsman, that was impressive! Thanks for the perfect cupcake!

Shwebb, yep, it's frustrating sometimes. And this hasn't happened yet, but I'm imagining how frustrating it will feel when one of these books hits the "big-time" (like the NYTimes list) and I can't celebrate here. I like the work, though.

I'm reminded of that series of mysteries that takes place in and around a group of ghost writers, can't remember the character or author name. Have people in your circle been mysteriously dying? LOL.

I hope you find that balance twixt mommy and writer soon, but be sure to get to appreciate the baby, they don't stay that way long. My baby finishes high school this year.

That must bring relief and satisfaction at the same time. This is so inspring for us fellow writers as well. Way to go, Jenna! :)

I am truly jealous of your tenacity Jenna...
it takes a lot of work a lot of eye strain a lot of brain power to garner such concentration to work on such things...
Congrats...and hope all of them make "big-time" even if you cannot "announce" them here....

That is awesome :)

A tip of the goblet for your productivity. Congrats.

Jenna, congrats on getting the job done! I read your brother's interview; kudos to him, too!

08-26-2006, 07:47 AM
Congratulations on finishing your books, Jenna, and your brother's blog is great!

I love this part in his profile, it put a big smile on my face.

"I love ladies and women very much being nice and gentleman to them and spreading sunshine."

He could teach lots of men a thing or two. ;)

08-26-2006, 03:36 PM
Hey, Jenna! Way ta go! It must give you a great feeling of satisfaction.

(Sorry this is so late - I'm just catching up on things at AW.)

08-26-2006, 05:53 PM
:) Really great news. Who knows, maybe one day someone will be doing a 'ghost' story about you and all your success. (Gently pat your tummy and tell the wee one that 'its' mommy is a very neat woman.)

08-26-2006, 09:24 PM
I'm always in awe of your energy and talent. I can't say enough good things so I'll say "Very cool!". Great job Jenna!


08-28-2006, 04:46 AM
Very cool. I can't believe how much you get done. Congrats, Jenna!

08-30-2006, 11:57 PM
Ooooh, Jenna, you're all undercover. How do you like it? I always thought it'd be cool...I imagine myself writing in a dark room, making sure no one sees or hears me.

Good luck!

Thatís wonderful, Jenna. Congratulations to you! Youíre just so darned prolific, and inspirationally so, at that.
