Hard to believe that when next I see it, it will have pretty covers and new-book smell.
It held together pretty well, if I do say so myself. And at least it nicely establishes the primary conflict of An Apprentice to Elves. Conflicts. Rather. For there are a lot.
I really rather feel I should be able to claim this as a "book read." Because quite honestly, this is the first time I have sat down and actually read it from one end to the other. Previously, it's always been in the process of being written, rewritten, or edited when I did that.
Reading is different.
Perhaps I shall. I mean, nowhere does it say that reading your own books does not count as reading.
I was amused by the bit where I looked at a sentence, thought, "The grammar in that is wrong," fixed it, thought, "no, the grammar in that is wrong," and then went and got my copy of The Transitive Vampire to discover I had it right the first time.
Tomorrow, it's back to May Mazer and her ghost ship. I will have a proposal by month's end, or know the reason why. Possibly even by week's end. Since next week is all over with trips to Boston.
