*Banished* Winner!

The winner of a signed copy of Sophie Littlefield's Banished is Lora! Congratulations and thanks for taking the time to comment on her Author Spotlight! I'll be contacting you shortly via email to get your address. *grin

In writing news, the final, "final", okay, seriously final *NOW*, galley for Dark Tide Rising has been approved as of yesterday afternoon. (I wonder if editors hold a secret burning hatred for writers who find mistake after mistake in their final galleys? I couldn't apologize enough through this process. I have the best editor in the world...and the most patient.) Now I'm only waiting on a release date, which I'm hoping is sooner rather than later.

Good things happening all around. Lora, I'll be in touch. You'll enjoy Banished, guaranteed.

Congratulations to Lora!
And yeah, it took me forever to find and fix all my mistakes, even with my editor's help. Both my publisher and editor were VERY patient!

Congrats, Lora!

And those goblin typos are creep into our stories. It's so hard to whack 'em all.

Alex--I think patience must be in their job description.
"Can you edit?"
"Are you patient?"
"Then you've got the job."


Nicole--That's a great way to think of the process. Edit-Whack-A-Mole. I think they're wiped from the page, then another creeps up. lol
