Book Report

My book, that is.

We are still debating the title. I dreamed last night that we'd decided on Reveka's Curse, which is awful, but in the dream logic, I was so happy to have a decision. Of course, I know from watching my friends go through this that the title debates could last forever.

My editor made up some dust jacket copy that makes me look smarter than I am. I'm like, "This sounds like a great book!"

I wrote my bio for the cover. The cover stuff heads off to copyediting soon.

The book is due to copyediting soon, too, but I have some work to do on it before that.

I have a list of things to work on: a dedication (done), an author's note, assembling some references so that a professional artist can draw a MAP, Romanian pronunciation guide, etc.

We have discussed a cover...

Seems like five months ago, I was languishing without a contract... Oh, wait, that was five months ago!

I am SO jealous of all your problems ;)

Good luck finding a title that satisfies everyone. (Or, at least, is mortally offensive to no one...)

Yay for book making goodness!

And I know what you mean about dust jacket copy. :)

I'm v curious, because my Crow book dates are very similar and I don't have a pub date yet...

Anne's been doing a pretty good job of guiding me through my first time, so I feel that if they'd been set, she'd have told me. But I will definitely share the info with you when I get it!
