At 10pm last night I finished my last run through of the galley pages for Hugging the Rock. Today they are on their way back to my editor. The next time I see it, it will be a real book!

It was nice to know, as other LJers have mentioned of late, that I still love my characters, that I still feel their pain and their hope, and that I am very proud of the book. It was also nice to know that it feels done. Time to cut the apron strings and move on.
