Answer to a Strange Question

The question being -- why have I actually been so...silent...recently?

Answer? I'm doing my edits on my first book, "Touched by an Alien", coming to bookstores near you in April, 2010.

This isn't going to be a rant, by the way. Unlike many, I'm really enjoying the process.

It helps that I have an editor who is both nice and awesome. Makes everything better. What also helps is that I found pretty much all of her editorial suggestions to be comprehensible (not always a given) and likely to make the book better and stronger (also not always a given).

So, while I've been focused on those, many other things (blogging, humor pieces, feeding my husband, paying the bills) have gotten shoved aside. Oh, not everything, to be sure (the playing of all albums by Smash Mouth and Aerosmith has not been stinted, for example, nor have any of the pictures of hot looking leading men been ignored, either), but a lot of things.

I'm not done, but I've completed what I'd call my main run-through. I'm diving back in for the next go-round, so if I'm kind of quiet, that's why.

And I'm excited. The book is better, and making the additions and changes has been fun. Not work. Enjoyment. Really, you can't ask for more than that.

Love, Gini

Thanks! It's really been a cool process. And fun, which I hadn't been sure it would be, but sure am glad it is. Or something like that. :-D

I say! How cool to have an editor! Some day, maybe I will be able to say,"My editor!" Looking forward to seeing your name on the book jacket!

Thanks, Willie! It is a nice feeling to say "my editor". It's even better that I can say "my cool editor".

And, I'm with you. I can't wait to see the book in print on the shelves. (And hopefully moving fast off the shelves! LOL)
