Naked Edge is done

R.I.P. sweet Wubbit

Just a quick update to say that I'm finished writing Naked Edge and am now editing and revising the manuscript, with a goal of getting it to New York ASAP. The publication date is still March 2010. I'm hoping that sticks. Sometimes they bump up my titles once they get them, but I doubt that will happen this time.

In other news, my son Benjamin who lives with me came down with H1N1 which he caught from someone at work. So he's been home, sick, since Wednesday. He's now fever-free, however, and on the mend. I'm taking an anti-viral medication to prevent me from catching it, as I'm asthmatic and wouldn't bounce back the way he has.

On a deeply sad and personal note, Wubbit, our bunny friend of 12 years died during the night. Two days ago she quit eating and drinking, and curled up in her cage. She had no sign of obvious sickness, no injury, and I knew she was dying. I chose not to take her to the vet because I didn't think they'd be able to do anything, and I didn't want to scare her. She lived much longer than the average bunny lifespan (6 to 9 years), and overall was a very healthy critter. It's going to be really hard for Benjy (who is still asleep and doesn't know she's gone) because she's been our pet since he was 7 years old.

I'm very busy right now with a ghost-writing assignment so that's slowing me down on revisions for Naked Edge. It's interesting. I've never done this before, so it's completely new to me.

I hope everyone is well.


Sorry I haven't answered everyone's encouraging comments on my prior post. As you can see, I've just been slammed between writing, work, sick kid and so on...

I DO appreciate you all, and your support means so much to me!

Hi Pamela, I'm so sorry to hear about Wubbit. Losing a pet is so painful. I'm Benjy is feeling better. The ghost-writing project sounds neat. I hope you're enjoying it.
Congratulatons on finishing NE. Take care of yoursef and have a good break when the revisions are done. And keep us up to date on the research for your Arthurian tale - it sounds really juicy!

It is always so hard to lose a pet. I hope your son doesn't take it too hard, and that he feels better (health-wise) soonest.

Take care of yourself, Ms Clare.

Debbie H said...

Oh, Pamela and Benj! I am so sorry to hear that Wubbit passed. Many hugs and prayers. Glad Benj is getting better. When does he leave for school?

Ghost writing, huh? Sounds intriguing.

I'm glad you have finished NE and have edits to go.

Take care of yourself!

Oh, Pamela! I'm so sad to hear about Wubbit. I'm a bunny lover myself and have had a couple over the years. They have to be the dearest critters on earth. :o(

Congratulations, though, on completing Naked Edge. So much work but so very appreciated by us all!

Oh honey I'm so sorry to hear about Benjy being sick but I'm very glad he's on the mend. And I'm deeply sorry for your loss of your beloved Wubbit. Losing a pet especially one that you have had for so many years is heartbreaking. BIG HUGS!

And oooooooo ye are a Ghost? LOL JK I mean a ghost writer cool! dare we hope we hear more about this soon? :)

Lori said...

Wow, what a few days of highs and lows. Congrats on finishing Naked Edge - we're all excited about that.

So sorry that Benjy's been sick. But glad you're taking care of yourself. As a severe asthmatic myself, I know it's important to protect yourself.

And soooo sooo sorry about Wubbit. Losing a pet, especially a long-term one is so difficult. They're just a member of the family. Hang in there.

Luci said...

So sorry about Wubbit Pamela.

My husband supposedly had the H1N1 last week but he just had fever for a day and a half. Apparently his was a mild case. The doc told him not to take the antivirals since he didn't get it too strong as they are expecting it to return with a vengeance in winter :(.

Glad Bengy is feeling better !

RitaSV said...

Is Benjy feeling any better? Have you been able to avoid getting it? :o(

flchen1 said...

I'm so sorry to hear about Wubbit :( And hope Benjamin's feeling loads better! Congrats on finishing Naked Edge! Take care!

Lucy said...

Pamela, I'm so sorry to hear about Wubbit. I hope you take comfort in having had her for such a long time and hopefully she didn't suffer when she passed away.

Congrats on finishing NE! I'm going to start counting down the months now :)
