Book Accepted for Consideration - Track its Progress!!!

Hooray! Hooray! My book was accepted for consideration by the Board of Directors at their meeting last night; it was also accepted for "fast track" consideration. At this point, my submission (1st 3 chapters and last chapter) will be reviewed by at least five readers/editors and must get the thumbs-up by at least three of them. I'm working with the senior mystery editor to prepare outlines and other stuff with the hope that I get through Stage 2 of the three-stage process and will have the materials they need ready for Stage 3. More later...
