Literally. So I don't have any words of wisdom to post. It's Pub Board day, so I'm preparing my presentation and then having lunch with the Editor-in-Chief. The meeting starts at 1 p.m. CST in downtown Nashville, and I have no idea how long the marathon session will last. I'm presenting the Spring 2013 list, and believe it or not, I've prepared a Fall 2013 list.
As always, there will be give and take, lots of discussion and input from representatives in editorial, production, accounting, marketing, sales, and even the print buyer. Really? Really.
I'm not proud. I need your prayers for wisdom and for the Lord's leading in what we should publish. Some authors will be disappointed; some will be thrilled with the outcome. I will weep with those who weep, and I will laugh with those who laugh, because that's who I am.
Whatever happens in the meeting, I need to walk in knowing that I believe in every project and communicate my passion to those who will sit in judgment of every author's work.
Thanks for backing me up on the spiritual side. You're the best!
