I am over the moon.
I have a lot of revising to do over the next two months, plus subvention grants to apply for to help pay for those thirteen half-tone images.
But now we're talking publishing-speak: half-tones, word count, permissions. Delightful! I can't wait to talk cover images.
These will be the happiest revisions I've ever done. Even the index (I say that now, but...Oh come on, can't I just be happy today?). Yes, even the index! (I will now start accepting suggestions of professional indexers).
