Hallelujah! I feel like doing the Snoopy dance because I have met my deadline. The Elevator, after much last-minute cutting and writing of the ending, is now in submission shape!

Oh, how I love it when a plan comes together!

The really good news is that I’m heading out Friday morning for Colorado Springs, where Nancy Rue and I will be teaching an intensive writer’s conference over the weekend. Then home on Monday afternoon in time to refill the suitcase and head out Monday night for a week speaking to Christian schools in Atlanta. BUT–when I speak at schools, I usually have my evenings free, so I plan to take a last look at the manuscript and do a little “heightening” of key points and places. The polish and buffing, if you will.

How are you coming with the 90-Day-Bible-Reading Challenge? I’m actually feeling a little disappointed that it will be ending very soon. I’ve enjoyed it tremendously. But as soon as I return home, I’m starting to work on my doctorate in biblical studies, so I know I’ll be reading through the Bible again . . . and again.

Blessings to you and yours!

    Hi Angie!
    Should I continue to watch my mailbox for a copy of Magdalene? Or did the publisher decide not to send it to the Canadian addresses? Just wondering so I can order one at the bookstore if I’m not getting one in the mail.
    Thanks, Kristine

    THE ELEVATOR is scheduled for a Spring 2007 release, I think. I know . . . sounds like a long time, doesn’t it?

    Thanks, Ane, for the invitation, but my week next week is pretty much spoken for. After being in the schools all day, I have to polish the Elevator so I can hand it in Friday.

    And Kristine, I’m not sure the publisher sent international copies, but I know the copies of Magdalene have gone out. I don’t know what to tell you, because I suspect that international deliveries may take longer . . .
