The One-Week-Old Fawn is at the publisher’s. I’m just waiting to receive the electronic proof after I requested some changes. Next step will be when the editor puts the proof into the print queue. Good time to practice patience (at which I’m not particularly good). For enjoyment in the meantime, I reading a South African mystery in German.
