Just wanted to let you know I'm reading your other book (Subversive Copy Editor) and very much enjoying it. I've worked in book publishing 18 years, and it's so refreshing to know other people experience the exact same things!
(So now, no matter what happens with your children's book, you've got one great comment today!)

Thanks, Tracy—I'm taking it one day at a time, so it's great to have this one covered!

I'd like to add how much of a revelation The Subversive Copy Editor has been to me. I've worked in publishing for about seven years, yet I sometimes feel as lost as the day I started. My god, this book is the mentor I never had! Subsequently I've been hectoring every editor I know to read it. They'll thank me one day.
All the best for the next big release. Even if it IS just a little bit ugly, well, the most memorable books are always the ones that are a little big ugly, anyway. More character.
