Today was Manuscript Day–the day I finally placed the manuscript of my book, Voting Amid Violence: Electoral Democracy in Colombia, in the mail to my editor. As many of you know, I have been working on the book for almost two years, and am extremely pleased to finally have the full draft completed on it its way. Now I wait for the reviewers comments, revisions (hopefully not too many!) and on to the presses.

  1. Congrats, Dr. T!

    I co-wrote a chapter in a book and thought that was exhausting.

  2. Wow, you were writing a book! You should have told me. ;)

    Congrats on getting it done, btw. That absolute deadline works wonders, doesn’t it.

  3. Congrats Doc. If it ain’t $40 gazillion (ala Dr. Rinehart) I will actually read it.

  4. WooHoo! I just got a book chapter into press. That was a mess, and I was just submitting 12,000 words. Kudos to you for all the hard work. Fingers crossed that it is well received!

  5. Gracias all around!

    And yes, hard deadlines become a necessity after a while!

  6. Excellent news. And as someone who has read most of the chapters, I hope Dr. Taylor won’t’ mind my saying that it’s going to be the best book out there on Colombian elections and parties! (And I know something about the literature on said topics.)
