when did i finish the new book?

Yeah, I was about THAT old when I started this thing (see photo). 

But seriously, this is how this book went: 

I finished this manuscript (all 300 pages of it) in August last year. I did two drafts of it with my agent (took the fall). In January he started sending it out. It's May now. I don't have the contract yet, but it's official. 

That's how long it took.

Whew.

But huge, whopping YAY! This manuscript is going to turn into a book!
