The Waiting Game...
But I'd like it to be easier to wait. I'd like the waiting to not decimate my fingernails or send me to the penguin bowl looking for another hit of chocolate.
This week my very first SuperRomance - which comes out in January - appeared on Amazon. It doesn't have a cover yet (other than this 'coming soon' version), but I got a bit teary when I saw it. That's it right over there. The cover - and the fact it's up on Amazon and B&N - means its real. I haven't dreamed this whole Writing For Harlequin SuperRomance thing. I'm writing for my favorite line from my favorite publisher. It's real.
And now I'm waiting to see the actual cover and what goes in place of all that yellow-orange and I'm impatient. I want to see it. I need to see it.
While I'm waiting to see that cover, I'm waiting to hear from my editor on the proposal for my second SuperRomance. I had a ball writing the first 10,000 words or so and putting together the synopsis...and I want to know what she thinks. Will this be my second SuperRomance or will it be back to the drawing board? I'm biting my nails a lot over that.
And I just got my cover for my second Rocker book, from Harlequin-E, which has be equal parts a drooly
mess (I mean, seriously, that CHEST!) and scared that release day is coming up in September. I'm also waiting for the final copyedits for the third Rocker book - and the cover. Another cover to wait for...why are covers against me?!?
I have stuff to do in the interim - I have a super-secret project I need to finish up and send off to my agent. And copyedits for The Daughter He Wanted just landed in my inbox ... So I guess I have work to do while I wait and wait and wait on this other stuff.
Tell me, how do you deal with waiting?
