So, I've got to get back to this blogging thing. Seriously. No, Seriously.

I miss it. Facebook has been taking up way too much of my time lately.

So this will be my update post.

Adoption update: We're officially on the waiting list, we still have to send in our I600-A, which we will be doing at the end of sept/beginning of oct. We'll likely be waiting at least until next September for a referral, so we have a lot of time to read books and attend classes.

Manuscript update: I've heard back from Covenant (finally!) They had my manuscript under consideration by their editors, and then ultimately tabled it. Deseret kindly informed me that, though they appreciated my effort, they had no room for my book at this time. And so now I've sent it along to Shadow Mountain and Cedar Fort, and hope to hear from them sometime within the next six months. This is actually really fun for me, I'm getting some notches on my belt, and now I can be one of those people who says, in a weary wise tone, that she knows what it's like to be rejected by a publisher.

Other writing projects: My farcequin may have to wait a bit. What I ought to do is write a big chunk of it, then publish it serially on this blog, but, well, I'm writing other stuff right now that is more interesting to me. (Sorry.) Sheepish grin.

Baby-- we get to find out the sex at the beginning of september. WE're really hoping for a boy this time, but if it's a girl, well, that's great too. We love girls.

I hope all of you are doing well, and enjoyed your summer breaks (if you got them.)

WAHOO! Thanks for all the updates! And which book are you trying to get published?? And YAY on all the baby and adoption news! :)

Congratulations on all the happy news?

As for the rejection by the publisher (definitely unhappy), it sounds like you can send the manuscript back through them again sometime. Good luck with the two, new publishers!

margaret-- nice to hear from you, too. It's been a while, hasn't it? I kind of feel like the whole blogosphere kind of took a little vaction, myself included.

I wrote a chick-lit novel. It was fun, and I think well written, but perhaps too generic-- that's what I'm worrying about. But we'll see. I've got my fingers crossed about cedar fort, and in the meantime I'm working on other projects. That's the magic of this sort of thing... once you send it off you can forget about it and work on something entirely different and refreshing. :)
