Progress on Beautiful, Inside and Out

The latest on my story Beautiful, Inside and Out is that Nan Swanson, my editor has returned the second edit to my story and I have gone over the few remarks and sent it back to her today. She acknowledged receipt and the first galley proofs will be forthcoming. Hopefully, this will be a shorter wait and then after approval of the galley proofs it will be a cover chosen and a release date.
I'm still waiting on assignment of my novel A Change of Heart by Wild Rose Press to an editor to read my synopsis. At that point I'll learn if they want to look at the manuscript. If it doesn't fly then I have at least two other publishers to check on.
My story Ice Rink Romance rests at indefinitely. I emailed them after a nine weeks wait (they said it should be checked on in eight weeks) and the reply was that the head editor was having health problems and wanted me to be patient. I'll not be able to ask again on that one and it may be in limbo as health issues many times are not resolved.
I've been trying for several months to obtain a license to display Chesley Bonestell's space art paintings here on my blog. Many exchanges have resulted via email and the lady said she'd be glad to grant the license but it seems several unanswered questions and issues have not been resolved. Again, I have a bad feeling if this is ever going to take place. I can only hope.
