Finished!

I’m feeling cocky today. THE ARCHANGEL PROJECT isn’t due until 1 March, but it’s already in the hands of my agent and when my editor comes back on Monday, she’ll have it, too. That’s an entire month ahead of time. Wow.

Now I turn my attention to the copyedited manuscript of WHY MERMAIDS SING, which has been patiently awaiting me. They’ve given me an amazingly long turnaround time; there have been occasions when publishers have only given me two days.

In addition to that, Steve and I are working on plotting out the next thriller. I’m starting to get dizzy.

Congratulations! Sounds like you have every reason to feel cocky. :)

CONGRATS!

Congratulations! Speaking as one who has never completed anything until on or after the deadline, that's amazing. You may now bask in the glow of virtuous authorial fulfillment.

Never having braved a blog, I don't know the etiquette, so my apologies if I've transgressed;I had wanted to send an e-mail, but couldn't find an address. I just finished reading the first two St. Cyr mysteries, which are beyond-words wonderful, and I'm thrilled that you're planning to write more. I'm planning on reading as many more of your books as I can lay hands on. On a more serious note, I'm a linguistics professor who does research on popular fiction (including romance, sci fi and mystery and Bond-type books). I do realize that writing is a very hard, time-consuming job, and that if you answered all your fan mail, you wouldn't be able to write anything else, but I would love to discuss some aspects of your writing if that's possible.

Thanks, everyone, for your congrats. There was a time I REALLY didn't think I'd get both books done.
