Ladies and gentlemen, we have a sequel.
Now go get some sleep so you can show us your shiny present tomorrow.
Congratulations on a squalling baby book, John.
Congrats :) — now off to an editor
I don’t mean to sound less than excited about the book and all. I mean, you know, congratulations.
What I really want to see is the shiny present.
Congrats! But hey, I thought you didn’t want it marketed as a sequel. :)
Very much looking forward to reading this, once it’s out.
Yay!!! Congrats on finishing it in such a…er, timely manner. :)
congratulations on completion! so when wil it be out – been waiting eagerly for ages!
Yay! I can’t wait to read it, I really enjoyed Old Mans’ War.
That’s fabulous news, John. Congratulations!
Congratulations! Really looking forward to reading this one.
:-D What great news for an otherwise cloudy morning. :-)
John, do you know when it will be published? (I.e., hit the bookshelves…)
The Amazon listing says February 21. I had heard March. Either way: Early in 2006.
That’s fantastic! Congratulations! So when do we get to see the shiny present?
Well, hopefully today. It hasn’t arrived yet, though.
Congrats. “Exactly”? Is it like filling the gas tank up to (I was about to write $10.00 and realized how out-of-date that was) $40.00?

The End. For now, my dear readers, from me, John.)
(Tools –> Word Count. 95, 000 words)
Heh. No. It was just a coincidence, really. And thirty of those words are chapter headings, in any event.
what a thrill! you should be proud.
And to you, Elizabeth!
Congrats! I look forward to reading it.
Glad you didn’t have to shoot yourself. Good work.
Woo-friggin’-hoo! The only thing is, now it’s going to be a long, long wait until February or March…
(And hopefully I won’t be reading TGB for the first time while in a hospital, the way I was with OMW.)
Yay! Congrats! :)
And I’m just waiting to see what the shiny new present is.
As someone addicted to the written word, thanks for being my supplier! I look forward to finding out about Jane.
A toast to the new book!
