Because I can’t wait to share the news any longer: my awesomesauce husband just got a book contract! It’s an academic book for an academic market coming out at some not-yet-determined point in the future. We heard about a month ago that he’d been given peer-review approval, but didn’t know until late this afternoon that the editorial board had approved publishing it (because, well, the editorial board didn’t meet to discuss it until this afternoon).

So at this point they’re mailing him a contract and he’s giving them a date that he’ll have the manuscript ready to proof by and they’re moving from there. Meanwhile, awesomesauce husband is away, meaning we can’t even celebrate until Monday (when he’s back and I’m not working until 11).

So. YAY!
