It happened. On Monday I received official word from my editor that the manuscript for Writing Young Fiction for Dummies is moving on to production. “You’re done!” she said. Woo-hoo!
Of course, that meant a chocolatey celebration with the four Halverson men. They chose Extraordinary Desserts in Downtown San Diego. If you haven’t been there, go. It truly is extraordinary.
As are my men. They gave me the space/time to write the book even when that meant weekends or evenings. They gave me presents (toy cars from their stashes) last night and handmade signs, and it was their idea to pose victorious in front of the restaurant’s sign. Alas, the tallest Halverson man had to stand behind the camera, but he was there, too, as usual behind the scenes but smiling proudly.
