A four contract

Late yesterday afternoon, I had a lovely email from my editor offering a four book contract for four full length novels. We have agreed terms and delivery dates, so I am under deadlines again -- which feels good.

One of the nicest bits was in the memo offering the contract the words -- to demonstrate our commitment to and support of you. It is so nice to know you are wanted!

But the celebrations are over, and it is time to roll up my sleeves and get into this manuscript.

I am about halfway through Eclipse but am putting it to one side. When I am doing revisions, I find my own story consumes me and it is difficult to read fiction. My daughter will be pleased to get the book back. Yesterday after denying she was a fanatic, I casually asked her if she was reading Breaking Dawn for the second time. No, came the answer the fourth. I rest my case.

No new mole hills. The traps will need to checked but I worry that the mole has gone deeper and started breeding...
