But why is the TT gone?

I actually did a Thursday Thirteen this week. (Sidenote: Is today even Thursday? Is it time to go back to school yet?) Somewhere in this house is a scrap of memo paper with a TT scrawled on it.

It was tempting, come blogging time, to tear apart the house and look for it, but I’m not. Why? Because I’m going to the post office. As soon as I change out of my jammies, find my keys and bribe the children away from SW:BII, the secret project proposal (henceforth known as D&D—but with neither dungeons nor dragons) will start its journey to NY and I will once again start wearing a path between the house and the mailbox. It’s been a while since I’ve had reason to stalk the mail lady.

I feel slightly sick. Slightly shaky. Very anxious.

I’d forgotten how awesome that feeling is.

    I submitted my proposal last night. I will only be wearing a path to my computer (already worn as a matter of fact) but I will share in the angst with you. However, I doubt you will need me to hold your hand. You are very accomplished. :diva:

    Can you at least tell us if D&D is a suspense or ? Pleeeeaaaasssseee

    It’s outta here! :beam:

    We can hold hands, Michelle. Very accomplished, I’m not. Hopefully you’ll be celebrating again soon! :hug:

    D&D is a single title contemporary romantic comedy, actually. It’s very me, but has a quirky element to it which will either make it original and fresh…or totally unmarketable. :rofl:

    We’ll see. :popcorn:

    The Devlin Group is the only suspense I do (although I still call it action/adventure in my head), and—assuming my fabulous, beautiful, charming and intelligent editor will want Gallagher—they’re very happy with Samhain.

    (Probably not a good place for the :angie: smilie, huh?)

    yeah, but you know what? I wasn’t being a smartazz for once.

    You will.
    1. be one
    2. rock at it.

    I know this because I’ve read
    1. your books (okay one of ’em anyway)
    2. your blog.

    …so no more of your lip, missy.

    I’ve read many and Miz Kate is right. You are destined for greatness. Brace yourself for it.

    Taming Eliza Jane! She rocks.

    I have others on the TBR pile. 2x on a roadtrip (a gazillion years on the TBR pile) and Forever Again (ditto) Why did I read EJ and not the others? I accidentally put it in a computer file that I use a lot instead of the scary-huge TBR EBOOK file
