And it’s off…

Well, it’s done, it’s gone.

I’ve sent off a first chapter, synopsis, and a few paragraphs of some other book ideas I have.

The last few days have been a crazy blur…what seemed like something so simple, turned into a monumental undertaking.  Wednesday after school, DS came home with a sore throat-so right away I knew Thursday would mean he’d be home from school-after having just been off from school for his 2 week spring break.  Then DH had to go away for work.  Then the washing machine that was supposedly fixed now needs an entire new control panel.  So, long story short, the last 2 nights I’ve been up until 2am working away…

Last night (or early morning) I finally hit send, and emailed it off.

And now I live in fear of my inbox.  I sent a copy to my agent as well, as she hasn’t seen it.  So now I live in fear of two different emails.

This story is such a departure from what I’ve been writing lately.  It has glamour and intrigue and it’s set in France.  I do love the characters, Hayden and Madelyn, and the very different paths they’ve walked in life.  I guess the question though is whether the editor will like them and the premise…

So the self-doubt continues…on two different projects.

And now I have to decide which manuscript to return to…and then I’m taking tonight off!

    Have I volunteered yet to accompany you to France should you require additional research? I’ve got friends who are 2 hours outside of Burgundy … and I am an official-unofficial-tour-guide for the South of France … and my “Paris” knowledge ain’t bad either … provided your characters have a rendezvous at Jim Morrison’s gravesite LOL I’ll start booking us flights now :) All good news will appear in your inbox … you deserve it!!!!! (Esp. since the washing machine blew up … boo hiss)

    There is no room for self-doubt with either of the projects – they are fab! And you can’t go wrong with setting a book in France, either. :-) Enjoy your night off!
