It's done!! I sent Convincing Leopold to my editor at 3:48am, well, I guess that would be this morning. Five minutes later, I was doing a little happy dance in the kitchen. It was one of those limbs-flailing, spinning in circles happy dances. Fortunately, Kitteh was my only audience.
I'm now out from under all deadlines, for the time being, at least. Last summer, I contracted three books with Loose Id, and Convincing Leopold was the last one that needed to be written. As I just sent the book to my editor, I don't even have a deadline for edits yet. I'm so looking forward to reading and organizing. I've had the almost impossible urge to organize the closets, and now I can finally give into that urge :) Honestly, I'm not a neat-freak, but whenever I'm under a deadline, I always get the urge to organize or clean. Unfortunately for the state of my closets, that desire usually doesn't last long once the deadline has passed.
So what's next as far as writing goes? I want to finish up a novella I started last fall for Amber Quill. It's over half-way done, so it should only take a month to finish it. Other than that, I haven't yet decided. A few book ideas have been nagging of late, so I'm just going to see which one rises to the top and screams 'write me' the loudest.
Bound Forever releases tonight *g*, but I'll save the squeeing for tomorrow's post.
