First draft of THE SILVER DOOR is done! Done!

I love the ending, which came out totally different (and much better) than I’d planned. Donedonedonedone.

I am dancing.

Well, I was. Now I’m typing. When I finish typing, I’m going to dance some more.

    Little late, but better than never^^:

    Big congratulations from Germany.

    That’s great news and congratulations! There’s nothing to beat the feeling of seeing something through to the end. And being surprised and overjoyed by the ending makes it even better!

    Yay! Congrats! You snoopy dance all you want, Holly; you deserved it! And yes, thanks for sharing the process. It’s been fun for us, but definitely more fun for you.

    I can’t wait to read it!

    Congratulations, Momma. That’s awesome! …kind of wishing I could stay over here to get an advance copy of this one as well.

    That may be wrong, but it’s also true.

    Sweetness! Way to go. Now make your significant other bake you chocolate chip cookies in celebration. (It’s what I would do. ;))

    Not sure if you’d noticed already, but the Talyn hardcover is #20 on’s SF&F bargain bestseller list. It’s right behind The Last Battle and ahead of Song of Susannah. I know the bargain bin is not the most desirable of places to be, but I think it’s pretty cool that Talyn is doing better than an edition of a Stephen King novel!

    Well deserved CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

    I can’t wait to read it!
