Literary Waiting

It can take 12-18 months for a novel to come out once a publisher acquires it. My second novel was bought last spring. I thought it would be coming out this fall. Alas, it's been pushed back to Winter 2007. So, I'm gonna take a nap. Wake me next year.

That waiting period is just too much, huh? I know the feeling.

12-18 months!! Geez, I work in academic publishing and I'd kill to have that kind of schedule! But then again, no one really awaits a textbook with the same fervor as with a new novel. Wake me up next year too.

Wow. That sucks. I want it now, damnit!

That's a bit too long...

Oh well, I guess we have no choice but wait. :-)

Phooey, that means we ALL have to wait. I'm sorry to hear this. You're all poised for the next step, and it's really frustrating.

Well, your loyal fans will hang on.
