I don't know if this is the right place for this, but I'm so hyper right now I have to post this to as many places as possible before my head explodes.

I finished the edit of my third book tonight! It's finally ready for other people to read it, which means pretty soon it'll be ready to send out on its first job interviews. (i.e. queries)

The book - currently called "Blink of an I" is a work of speculative fiction. Here's the blurb:

"Mary Jones wants nothing more than to do her job, live her life and, if possible, fade into the background. In a future ruled by castes and carefully maintained ignorance, her life as a low-caste should be easy, but when she gets fired for doing her job too well, being reassigned becomes the least of her worries. Wrapped up in the hopes of a strange group called the Order, she winds up on a mission through the wastelands to get help from people who may or may not exist. On the run from the Union, with the Captain of their special guard for protection, she can only hope that if she makes it home, the people of her city will want her help. Because after all Mary’s been through, they’re going to be free whether they want to or not."

Not the best blurb in the world, but it's the best I have right now.

Now, I must go back to dancing around the house while my husband laughs and tells me how cute I am. =oD
