Huzzah!!! It's out! Birdie's book hits the shelves today!
Like any anxious mother, I hope the world will be kind to my latest creation
I have pansies to plant . . .and the corrected and revised manuscript of Under the Skin to return to my editor.
I won't see it again till it's in page proofs and I'll read through one more time, hopng to catch every last typo.It's one of the many oddities of publishing that now, as I begin visiting book stores and libraries to talk about The Day of Small Things, it's Under the Skin that is fresh in my mind.
My heartfelt thanks to those of you who've suffered with me through the borning of Birdie's book. You have kept my spirits up when thing were difficult and you've been kind enough to follow me as I go roving to post on other blogs.
A thousand thanks -- you all are great!
