Tanned, Toned, and Totally Faking It - Update!

Last thing everyone heard was that my commercial women's fiction novel (the long and 'proper' way of saying chick lit) was accepted for publication! Yup, I am still uber excited about it. And yes, I just said uber. :)

Anyway, I figured it is time to update everyone on the status of the book.

I sent my editor, Karen, the soft copy of my manuscript. She read it over the last month and made a bunch of edits (a bit on punctuation, some suggestions for clarity etc). She sent it back to me and I made the changes and added about 10,000 words. Now I've sent it back to Karen, (ya'll following?) and she said that she will have the next wave of edits completed within the month.

SO... end of May and I will have the manuscript back to make more changes to. :) It's getting better each time and I am so excited for everyone to have the chance to read it.

Still no publication date set as of now (but, WiDo, if you are reading this, I would have NO problem whatsoever with you hurrying up and choosing one!!! Haha...). I will keep everyone posted and assoonas I find out, you will find out! Karen says that it should be out sometime this year.

Fingers crossed that "sometime this year" does not mean December 31st.

Let me know if you have any questions... and I will do my best to answer them for you!!!!!!



  1. I know what you are going through, my BW has two books coming out soon. One submitted 1 1/2 years ago, the other 7 months ago. And now last minute stuff has added extra tension.
    Good luck to you.

  2. Welcome aboard the WiDo train. Looking forward to reading your book. That's one of the zippiest, eye catching titles. Sounds like it'll be a great read. And WiDo's editors are good!
