So on Monday I hit send, on Tuesday I made a final few tweaks, and Faerie Winter is now out of my hands. It will be back–for copyedits and page proofs–but in a sense Monday was my last day alone with the story, before it began truly making its way out into the larger world.
lnhammer and jennifer_j_s are heroes of the revolution for reading the final draft (after already having read other drafts) on exceedingly short notice before I sent it off.
So this week and next are for taking a deep breath, not writing, and refilling the well.
For those who’ve asked: we’re likely looking at a release date around April 2011. 🙂
