DOZENS OF DOUGHNUTS - Putnam (coming in 2020)

Thanks a zillion everybody!!!  :grouphug2:


I will probably be shouting from the rooftops tomorrow, but I wanted to post it here first! You all make it so fun to celebrate!


Kellie -- Thank you!! That is so funny! We were probably happy dancing at the SAME time! LOL. Luckily, I wasn't in public so I didn't have to tone it down. :D  Thanks for being excited with me.


Stella -- Thanks! This manuscript was indeed critiqued at the Poets' Garage a couple years ago (I still miss that place!). But LB hasn't decided on the second manuscript yet. It would definitely be something more recent, though.


Betsy -- Thank you! The perceptive and encouraging crit partner in this case was Laura (aka "poet").  :) And hooray for encouraging crit partners everywhere! Writing friends are so essential.
