I'm resigned to the prospect of a further delay in publication. The problem seems to be that the editor is too busy to have time for my insignificant little MS. She tells me she can't say when she'll have time to look at it, but she can't begin work on it for at least another month.
I wonder why was I put under pressure to rush the changes I was asked for?
At least people who suffer rejection can take comfort from knowing that being accepted for publication really isn't that great either! I suspect I'll be drowning my sorrows rather than partying on the publication date that appears on the publisher's website. . .
