Witch lit


I don't want to count my chickens and I know that Skint is still scanning for rogue comma's' and tpyo's but.....

WE'VE DONE IT!!!!!!

Dorcas is as ready as she'll ever be, smart, poised, polished to gleaming and ready for the next stage.
The Slavedriver, formerly know as Skint, sent me the last and final copy earlier on and I have to admit I had a good weep. The last few weeks caught up and the floodgates opened. I can hardly put into words how this feels, to see a work come to fruition. Tis glorious!
Whatever happens next is in the hands of the Gods but I do know that this experience has re-affirmed my faith in human nature.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, to everyone who leant their support. Debi you are a Goddess and Skint, what can I say?
You are my meercat!

Congratulations, Minx! Hope after the weep you had a bit of a celebrate! Now, with this one finished, what next? :-)

Keris said...

Congratulations, it looks great. Any chance of a review copy for Trashionista? :)

Minx said...

Ooer Keris, you'll have to ask Monsieur le Publisher. Contact is at Opening Chapter in me top links.

Yes weeping is good, all out now and looking at the ironing. Where does the plug thing go again?

Minx said...

Thought I'd better just explain about Skint and the Meercat thing in case you were all wondering at my strange little endearment.
Umm, no, you'll have to read the book and see if you find it as funny as he did!!

Jefferson Davis said...

Wow! Congrats Minx...I'm glad to see that you and Skint survived the proof-reading unscathed. :)

renolte said...

Oh Congratulations Minx! What a wonderful accomplishment!!!

I am so very proud of you!

jta said...

Felicitations, Minx. You've gone and done it now. I just hope you won't forget us when you're rich and famous and smoking through an eighteen inch ciggy holder. You won't, will you?

Susan Abraham said...

Congratulations, Minx.
Of course, of course!
So happy for you.

Susan Abraham said...

By the way,Confucious...Minx may have a little something else to do on the side, so you may still have to put up with the ironing for a bit longer.
yours sympathetically,

Minx said...

45 questions Susan, with subs in each! Would you like me to write my biography now and save all this phaffing about?
I tease, it will be done!

Felicity's to you jta, where've you been you bugger!`

Who are you all anyway?.....Jeeves, another gin sling if you please!

Minx said...

I am just starting to think about what we have achieved in the last month, yes, a MONTH!! It makes me shake and it probably deserves a post/book of its own.
Will attend to the post later and you should find that sometime after Skint has arisen (he sent a last mail to me at 2.30 this morning!) and sent it off, that he will also start to think about this amazing experience.

who needs sleep - when you're under the fluence of Dorcas Fleming anything is possible

Sharon J said...

WOW! You're a proper author! The real thing. Kind of like coca-cola only better.

Susan Abraham said...

Minx, just what you can whenever. Point form will do too.
And here's a big thank you.

pundy said...

Minx, you're an inspiration to us all. And inspiration is 99% perspiration. You deserve success after all your hard word.

I hope you become a famous author (as well as a famous blogger) and Skint becomes a famous - and rich - publisher.

Minx said...

No sweat Pund!

Is that why we do it? For the money, the fame? Or is it a burning need to get it down in black and white, safe? I'm thinking....

jta said...

I wonder if some paleolithic genius asked the same question while scratching inscrutable designs into a rock face with a bit of flint.

Minx said...

Good question Felicity, but who is to say what the payback would have been at the dawn of war and peace. Maybe a rather fetching minx coat?

Marie said...

Just ordered a copy Minx, and looking forward to a great autumn read.

Minx said...

Marie, how lovely, thank you!

Tigris said...

So.. can I read it now?

Minx said...

No, you have to wait like the rest of them Meike. Love your nudes by the way.
