Torturing the Virgin -- A Celebration

In a significant rite of passage, DIP got his first ever revision notes from his brand new editor today.

*evil cackle*

Join me in his Official Welcome to Revision Hell.

Let's hear it for the boy!

*And continuing the ritual torture, you can also send rah rahs here and here

Having just finished three months of revisions, copy edits, and final proofs for my first book, I'm just so glad its not me starting that whole process again!

If the DIP is anything like me, there will be much cussing, much muttering, much complaining about editormentors who just don't understand one's genius, followed by mumbled acknowledgements that yes, they probably are, in fact, right.

Writing is such a fun, easy business. ( See Bron execute a perfect swan dive into the SarChasm.)

(But seriously - congrats to the DIP for making it this far! As well as his impeccable taste in women, he clearly has talent and perseverance.)

And on another note entirely, I sent a package last week to FabDame , so she should be getting it soon.

Bron, you are one of the living, breathing reasons why I love the Internet.

Your cover is awesome too! I can't WAIT to read it. Will it be available here?

Now that we know his last name, shouldn't his nickname be DIPT?

Ann, my feelings exactly, about you :-)

US rights haven't been sold yet, so no US publication date at this stage. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, though - proof copies went out to various sub agents and international arms of the publisher a couple of weeks ago.

I'll let you know where it can be ordered from in Aus, but books here are expensive, (tradepaperback will retail for $34AUD) so you'll probably want to wait for a US release!
