And the winner is.......
Time flies when you're having fun. Or when you're spending your minutes reading. It took me several days, with many, many interuptions. ("Mom, can I have a fruit snack?" "Mom, I need a drink?" "Mo-o-om! Max is annoying me!") My children have not grasped the concept of Mom is Working. They don't think I work. We won't go into that right now.
So, I finished. And, I have to say, I'm happy. Happy with my work and happy that it's ready to go out. Shoot. Happy just turned into nervous.
I appreciate everyone who commented and guessed. I honestly had no idea how long it would take me. Turns out, it takes 8 hours and 3 minutes to read my book out loud. (If you're also deleting/adding/editing.) That means the winner is Michelle, who guessed 8 hours. Wow! Only 3 minutes off. That's some pretty magnificent guessing right there! (The chapters are on their way to your inbox.)
Next, I need to get my query letters sent. Blech. I've done this before and I dread the rejections that will be filling my email. But, hopefully there will be at least one who likes it. All I need is one.
