The pace of publishing never fails to bewilder me. This book has been written and rewritten (and rewritten, and rewritten) over…well, over quite a long time. Between each rewrite, there was waiting. Lots and lots of waiting. I publicized Princess of the Wild Swans. I wrote other stuff. I went to Belgium for five months.
Then, suddenly, the cover was done, the manuscript was being copyedited, the galleys were proofread, and in a matter of weeks — ARCs!
Now we just have to wait until August.
