So late yesterday afternoon, Jeanne and I received edits back for RECKONING. They came along with a 2 week deadline and a note that started with this truly awesome sentence: "I really loved the book, and I think you have done a great job exploring Emma’s emotional (and hot!) quandary--and provided a twisty, pulse-pounding mystery along the way."
Since next week Jeanne's on vacation and the following week I'm going to be in Boston with my son, the timing couldn't have been worse. So last night I went to my husbands going away celebration since he's switching jobs, went to bed at 11 pm, then got up at 3 am. Read through all the editorial notes, made a bunch of my own. Got on the phone with Jeanne at 8. Using the magic of the Internet we screen shared and by 11 am we'd managed to knock out almost all of the edits. With just a couple things left to work on we took a break and worked independently and emailed back and forth.
I feel like I've just run a marathon. With luck I think we'll be able to finalize and send back tomorrow. Whew! Thanks for being such a terrific writing partner Jeanne!
