Excellent! I guess you can't show us, since it's going to be published, right?
What's the subject matter?

Many congratulations you multi-talented EEjit!

Fame at last - congratulations!! Don't die yet, there may be more good things in store for you. It would be a crying shame to miss them!

This is wonderful new, TFE.

Let's all sing the round now:

Row, row, row the boat
gently down the stream
merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
TFE has his dream!

...and many more! :-)

Thank you Susan, tis easy to be enthusiastic now, but wait till the months go by with nothing but rejections, that's when you really dig deep and question if you have anything to say.

Thanks Jeanne,lovely song.Did ye ever read three men in a boat by Jerome K Jerome ? For an auld yoke it's really pretty good and funny.Like all/most books I haven't finished it, but still!And the irony of someone who never sleeps yet has his dreams come true is interesting :)That's me by the way, not the 3 lads in das boat.Looking forward to being chief poteegrapher for your next academic blockbuster.
