It is done, it is done, it is done

A ritual from an energy-healing technique that shall remain nameless ends thusly: it is done, it is done, it is done.

This is meant to be the signal that the healing has taken place.  But today I am co-opting it to announce that the novel is done.  Finished, finito, fini, DONE. 

I can hardly believe it.

I can also hardly believe how carefree and energized I feel–ready to tackle new projects, and return to some old ones as well–like organizing my office.  It is bad, I tell you.  If I took a picture of it you would be shocked.

But first it is off to New Mexico for a week.

No matter how painful, and I know it will be, I promise to share the ups and downs of the novel submission process.  Current status: query sent to agent I have personal recommendation for.  Please think good thoughts.

DON'T FORGET THE CONTEST to win a copy of The Midnight Disease.  You have until the end of today to comment on that post and then I will choose a winner, randomly.  And let me just say, as of now, your odds are very good.  So get on over there and make them bad.

Well done and of course there will always be good thoughts from me!

Have a great trip – well deserved!

Wow! Many congratulations! “It is done” – that has such a nice ring to it!

Thanks, everyone! And Renny, I will check out the gathering.


I’ve just finished Emma Jean — being your best friend I get to be a reader, too — and this is my second time through. I loved it the first time. Couldn’t stop reading it. You know what, the same thing happened on my second read. I didn’t want to stop reading it — stayed up late, pushed aside other projects, stayed glued to every scene. And now I see the depth, breadth and life your work over the last year has added to the book. Great Work!!! Honey, as a friend you rock? And as a writer you rock?… Read more »
