After I’ve daydreamed, scribbled, researched, outlined, drafted, despaired, rebounded, revised, consulted, reworked, and tweaked…

…it’s time to press send.

<deep breath>

This will be my eighth book, but my insides still twist when I think about hitting that button and letting go.

But I’ve got a finished manuscript that’s the best I can make it. I’ve had wonderful readers to help me. (Thank you, Tracy, Kit, David, and T!)  And I’ve got an editor who’s eagerly awaiting some crocodiles in her in-box.

So it’s goodbye and good luck to RA #3, THE CROCODILE CAPER!

<hits the button and breaks out the celebratory chocolate>

Done!
