Well, the news is better than I expected. :-) The book has passed the frightful hurdle of editor-requested edits. Now, it is moving on to the next stages of formatting, cover development, proof, and release. That is the greatest thing about ebooks: a 18,000-word story can sell based on its own merit and not be rejected out-right because of the word-count. That, I love.
