I don’t want to reveal too many details at this juncture about some of the behind the scenes fretting I’ve been doing and the kind people who have been helping console and inform me. But I will say, especially to those who have expressed their concern for this project, that I am greatly relieved today.
I have spoken with trained legal professionals and they expressed to me the opinion that my novel can go forward exactly as I imagine it. I still have to do some negotiation with wealthy and powerful forces. But I feel confident that the creative project I’ve been working away at for years will go on as envisioned and planned.
I’m heaving a cautious sigh of relief.
