Also, please accept my apologies for not answering all the blog comments and contact form entries. I'll try to get to them soon!
In other news, I am sending in my final project for my Beginning Fiction Techniques class this week. (I'm very pleased with this because it will give me more time to work on the book.) I've been getting very good grades for all of my projects, and again, I'm so thankful for all of your prayers and well wishes on my behalf.
