The Eagle has Relanded

Thanks for asking, and for your prayers. About 30 minutes ago, I emailed 3,800 more words to my publisher in Oxford, England.


My agent told me that on a scale of 1-10, this error is about a 3 (low). I’ll let you know when I hear back from England. Thanks.

  1. Congratulations on the true completion of your manuscript! I know it will be well received. I am glad that even more people will be able to benefit from your life-changing words.

    There was a chapter included on “Don’t be so hard on your inner mess” right? 🙂

    Enjoy some down time now.

  2. Praise God. I think that the delivery of a manuscript is the closest thing to childbirth that a man will ever experience. (My husband says kidney stones, but what does he know.)

    I had a similar experience last week when I submitted my book The Mormon Mirage. Zondervan asked for an updated version of the book which was originally published in 1979, and through all the negotiations nobody said anything to me about page length. As I prepared to submit my 500-page manuscript while the contract revisions were whizzing back and forth between Zondervan and my agent, Janet, she asked, “Now, the book is still 275 pages, right?”

    I can’t tell you how the prospect of cutting the book in half seemed to me! Thank God they took it at 500 pages.

    Bill, I am so proud of you. You are a true pro if you can write out of the overflow of a good book.
