I'm so happy to announce that I was informed the The Stone Child will be translated into Greek!


That's like an entirely different alphabet! Now I can imagine little Greek kids sitting around reading my book while eating grilled octopus salad and mint chutney covered lamb, while overlooking the glowing turquoise expanse of the Mediterranean Sea... ah, maybe I'll have to come and read the book TO them?

It's been a big week. Huge.

I moved from my tower at the top of the hill in Prospect Heights down to the cozy valley at the bottom of Park Slope, and I'm SO excited. My new apartment is absolutely everything I've ever dreamed of. I have closets (!) AND there's room enough so that I can walk all the way around my bed! Plus, good water pressure! (It's the little things...)

Seriously: shiny hardwood floors, beautiful details on the walls. A large living room to share with my new roommate Zack. We're going to have so much fun. We're even getting cable! Hooray!

Still waiting for editorial feedback on The Nightmarys. I'm hoping to be done with that by the fall... but we'll see. As we know by now, these things take awhile.

BUT we're finally less than two months from The Stone Child release date.

Sheesh. Has time ever passed more slowly than now?

Last week went by SOOO slowly--I think mostly because of my move. I sat at my office desk every day, twiddling my thumbs thinking, "If only I could leave right now, I could just rent a truck and get it all done."

Hmm, now that I think of it, it was sort of like editing a book--"If only I could get feedback right now, I could just start revising and get it done. (and get paid... ;^)" ...hee hee... just kidding.

Okay, time to get back to data entry. (That's right, I went back to a day-job for now... economy woes-shmeeconomy woes... We'll survive, right? Right??? And maybe eventually write full time??? hahahaha!)
