Contract in the mail !

I no longer have to remain cool as a cucumber - considering that it's 113 degrees Fahrenheit, here in Hyderabad, it required quite an effort. I can jump, do cartwheels - well, maybe not - and kiss everyone around. I received my signed copy of the contract in the mail, today. I wonder if we are all like that. Worrying constantly that something will happen to make the publisher change their mind. I was. Now, I can safely start worrying about something else. Considering my extended proficiency in that area, I don't expect it will take me more than an hour or so to come up with something new :)

Love how your picture looks now, Katia. Leave it like this, we can actually see you!

Well, thanks to you, Rilla. It would have taken me another two hundred years to figure out the whole post-a-picture thing. Thanks.

Congratulations, Katia! Thanks for sharing this very exciting news. Great picture -- it's nice to be able to put a face to a name. i can't seem to load my picture on to blogspot for some reason. Anyway, I have now also entered the blogosphere (www.natashayim.blogspot.com) and my website just went live today. Check it out at www.natashayim.com
