    Congratulations, I can't wait for it!

    The even better news is that lucky you, you gave birth but will have no sore, chapped nipples.

    What a wonderful event–the birth of a book. Congratulations. Now the potty-training part–getting people to buy.

    I've felt the same thing with smaller projects, so I think I can empathize. I'd suggest doing something to celebrate away your jitters. Or, if you're so inclined, maybe do some little ritual of completion. I think I'd have the urge to plant something, like a tree, so that as it grows you can always remember the accomplishment of today. Writing is a pure act of bravery. Congrats.

    Thanks again, all!

    @Roxanne, what a lovely idea. Apartment-dwellers don't often get to plant trees, though… I'll have to think of something else.

    CONGRATULATIONS! I will eagerly await the book. I am very much looking forward to reading it (I almost wrote eating it! That too…) Hugs!

    YAY!!! So happy for you Debbie! I have zero doubt that you're book will be amazing given the knowledgeable and thoughtful cook and writer you are. Can't wait to see it. Congrats.
