The good news is that, foreseeing this eventuality, I'd already uploaded files for my 2003 manuscript (the one I already have a copy of), so currently winging its way to me is the second proof copy of a book I already own and don't really need another copy of. Any takers?
I'm not as disappointed as I maybe should be, though. I didn't care too much that my 2003 manuscript was rough, because I like it as it is, and I don't want to do anything more with it. My 2008 manuscript has potential, and if I'm going to get it printed, I want a good copy of it printed. A cover that wasn't rushed through at the last minute (although Dan still did an excellent job of it); a restructured, rewritten, properly edited manuscript.
So now I'm hoping they offer a free voucher again this year for NaNoWriMo, so I can get a free copy of my manuscript then. In fact, that might work out pretty well, since this year for NaNoWriMo I'm planning to write a sequel to my 2008 manuscript... a two-book volume, perhaps?
And I'll leave you with this version of "Can I have this dance" from HSM3, which I found through this writer's blog, and thought was too good not to post. I don't actually like either HSM3 or any of the songs in it, but this singer, Sam Tsui, turns the song into a really beautiful one.
