Just When you think It'll never happen...
It does! Like what my husband says his parents said when he was a kid (follow that?) - when he was waiting for the pizza to come and he didn't think he could take it one. more. second... That's when the server showed up with the steaming ooey-gooey pan of cheesy deliciousness.
In my experience, the pizza shows when I go to the bathroom. So I always miss the first slice, but whatever, it still comes!
Just like pizza, my ooey-goey delicious contract for Violet and the Woof with HarperCollins/Katherine Tegen Books arrived! And I signed it! In quadruplicate!
Witnessed by my 9-month-old assistant, Kilian, aka "Peter" in the story he helps to sign into print. The drool splotches are his (in case the contracts manager thinks they're mine).
This never gets old!
