The unbelievable has happened.

Somehow, just after I wrote the last word on Rand and Jierra’s book, the file deleted itself. Then autosaved a blank document over it. I’m not sure how this happened. And I can’t figure out how to find where another copy was saved. I searched .asd, .tmp, .wbk, .doc, everything I can think of and still nothing.

I found a file from a while back that had a little more than HALF the book on it, but the last part of it–gone. Completely.

I’m going to cry. Going to go soak my head in the bathtub and cry.

This week–when I was going to take a break and plan preschool for my kid–I’ll be rewriting the last half of the book. I should still have time to make the Christmas Eve publication date. And I know enough of the story to be able to reconstruct it. But I worked my tail off this past week to finish the book and give myself plenty of time to edit, and now…

Now I am heartbroken…

*Sniff*

  2. Oh my god no, have you checked your drafts? Does it auto save? Take a deep breathe then scream as loud as you can, kids might think your having a tantrum but you’ll feel better xx
