Excited!

  Posted by Picasa


I received the copy-edits for What's Written on the Body in the mail yesterday. David C. does such a fantastic job! I love getting the manuscript back full of little red marks, because I know it has been gone over with a fine-tooth comb. I discovered one poem had inadvertently been left out of the "final" version I had sent in, and so had to quickly paste it back in. Yikes. A few ideas for the cover have been presented, and I like one of them a lot. It's a little like being pregnant: things are starting to show. I've got a book (baby) on board!

I think our books must be coming out at the same time. I just did the first pass of my galleys and answered the queries. Just waiting to do the second pass.

Pregnancy/book analogies are all well and good, but if you start talking about mucus plugs, I'm gonna have to stop reading your blog. I'm just sayin'.

CD: Yes we are "due" about the same time.
A: :) I'll try to control myself.

First pass, second pass . . .

That would be lovely.

Very cool, Peter. What's the ETA in the Spring? Will it be ready in time for AWP?

Peter said...

Oliver: yes, should be ready by end of February. Fingers crossed!

That is an amazing image.

My best with the book, Peter.

Peter said...

Thanks, Sam.
The page is from a Proust notebook, I believe.
