(Okay–I’ll admit it. The image for this post is a bit of a stretch. But it’s hard to keep coming up with new images for books that don’t even have covers yet, you know? Cut me some slack.)
I got the email from my agent last night, and I’m polishing off a few rough spots today, but THE MEMORY THIEF is done. What does “done” mean? It means my agents have read it and given it the green light to go out on submission.
Does it mean I won’t have to revise it again? No clue. If we find an editor or two interested in picking it up, then chances are that she or he will want some changes done to it, at which point I’ll go once more into the breach. I’ll tackle that happy occurrence if and when it happens.
But one thing I’ve learned as a writer: you need to celebrate milestones. GET CUPID never got to this point. THE MEMORY THIEF has, and I’m very excited about it. I’ll keep you up to date on what happens next, of course. For now, here’s a link to my web page about the book, now updated with the completed chart of the book’s writing process, tracking it from the first time I had the idea for the book to where we stand now.
