The weeks of disappearance and sleeplessness have paid off: I submitted my manuscript to a publisher today! This is a huge step for me and I am thrilled to be able to share it with so many people who support reading and fantasy fiction writers.
I will find out in a few months whether or not I am accepted. In the meantime, I'll keep right on writing and posting!
P.S. Watch for a few more big announcements in the next week or so. Exciting times...!
