Herbalist's Apprentice

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!
