I hate to be a tease - oh, who am I kidding? I love to be a tease. But my agent and I have agreed on the subject of my next book proposal, and I know it's a topic in which the publisher of my previous book is interested. I'm going to spend theholiday season fleshing out my two-paragraph pitch into a full proposal, with summaries and chapter outlines, and see where we go from there. I'm optimistic that by the end of January, and certainly the end of February, we'll have a deal.
