I received news yesterday that Holiday House is making an offer for my 100th book. It’s a book for the very young about how the body works. I wrote it a year ago tailored to the needs of an editor at a different publisher. He never responded to follow-up queries over the next eleven months.
One month ago I finally notified him that I needed to hear something by the end of that week or I would try somewhere else. No response. I went to Holiday House, where an immediate expression of interest was signaled. And first thing yesterday morning I got the glad word.
I’m happy the wait is over! Well … now of course I’m waiting for #101. (:>
