About four months ago I received the peer-review comments from my editor. Added close to 20,000 words to the manuscript as a result and just finished the final changes this morning. I be opening champagne if it was not 9:30 am . . .

Now I reformat the layout slightly, print up and mail a copy to my editor in Toronto and play the waiting game.

The peer reviewers will be sent a copy of the revised manuscript and return a publish/do not publish decision on my 4 years of labour.

In the meantime, I plan to write complete children's book for one of my nieces in time for Xmas.

Now what sort of children's story would Dr. Strangelove write . . .
