This month I've been turning over revision feedback from my editor, which prompted my post called Atkins Editing: Thick Meat, No Bread. I have so much to learn about the publishing business, and growing a thick skin is something I'm working on.
Sincere thanks to all of you who participated in this week's contest, and congratulations to the winners! I wish I could send books to everyone. Your support and encouragement is greatly appreciated.

Later this month, my editor will give her opinion about the direction of Book 2. I probably shouldn't publicly admit this (but why stop now?) ...it's scary for me when critique partners or my editor are "having a look." Heebie jeebies.

"When's the best time of day to work out?"
I always answer, "Whenever you can fit it in."
And so it goes with writing, I think.
