This time

when I say, COMING SOON! I really mean it.

It’s official, I have submitted the manuscript of School Spirit, Book 3 in the Kimmie Jillison Mystery series, for publication. And let me tell you, I am exhausted.

Final draft editing and print set-up are like many hours . . . days . . . weeks of active labor. Then, with equal parts angst and elation, you hit submit–only to be reminded that it’s false labor. Go home and wait another week for delivery. After all that, chances are high that when your baby arrives you will discover issues and a return to file and formatting will again be required. (This is where I lose the birthing metaphor, lol. Please do not return your newborn for fixin’.)

But, I’m really close.

And this time, close counts.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
