7 Years

Exactly 7 years ago today, I got an email from agent Lindsay Davis saying that she wanted to work with me to revise the manuscript that eventually became Sword and Verse.  I was leaving an interpreting job, and was walking out to the parking lot with my team interpreter.  It was the first time the other interpreter and I had worked together, and I was sure she thought I was having some kind of fit when I looked at my phone and then started babbling incoherently.  (We have worked together since, and she assures me that this isn’t the case.)

The whole twisty narrative, if you’re interested, can be found here.  But the point is: that was 7 years ago today.  In 6 days, Sword and Verse will finally be out in the world.  You know how they say, “Never give up”?

Never give up, kids.
