I spent the day going through the copyedited version of This World We Live In, my least favorite part of writing a book, and no sooner had I finished, then I had a mother mini-crisis to deal with. I'm going into New York City tomorrow to see my friends Christy and Joyce. We've been best friends since freshman year in college, but Christy lives in LA, so it's rare for the three of us to get together.
That's to explain why I may sound cranky and why I won't be posting tomorrow when I wouldn't be quite so tired.
My UK publisher was very appreciative of all the trilogy titles you came up with, but they've decided to go with The Last Survivors. I'm very appreciative also, and loved many of your suggestions, so thank you again.
I posted a new entry over at thirdmoonbook. Harcourt is prepping the dead and the gone for paperback publication and wants to use a little bit of TW as a tease (just as Life As We Knew It has a little scene from d&g in it). I let my editor know which scene I wanted as the tease, but I guess I won't know until I get a paperback in January whether the scene I favor is the one they use. If you don't want to wait until January to read the scene (and that is, of course, assuming they use the one I want, which they may not, because it might be too short), then hop on over to thirdmoonbook and read it there.
Scooter is currently gnawing at my ankle. You have no idea how I fantasized about letting him loose on the copyeditor!
