Would you be unable to sleep properly because of this?

If times had been 'lean' for a while and your dh had submitted a novel to a 'top' publisher, who rejects thousands of manuscripts before even seeing them. This one has got through that hurdle, has gone through a first reading, and is now with the 'bigger guns'.

I can't bear the suspense.

That's so exciting I'd be on pins as well, I bet every time the phone rings or the postman comes your heart does a little flip. Fingers crossed your dh will hear something soon.

I'm having to pretend to be 'chilled' about it.

How exciting!! Well done DH! Even if it goes no further, happy dance for getting that far. What is the book about [nosy bookworm smiley]

If it gets all the way you'll have to tell us what its called so we I can read it

Absolutely, it would take ice cold nerves not to be excited. Good luck DH!

Glad my reaction seems to be normal grin! He even got fed up with me expressing the 'contained excitement' after the initial 'holy shit' following by squealing type excitement. Have been sworn to silence irl so have to have an outlet, may as well be MN (had to namechange too cos it's all top secret).

Have adopted nonchalant mode, after all, he'll tell me any good, ok or not so good news when he gets it.

I'd better not say anything about the content (will keep to that sworn to secrecy bit). I'm just sighing a lot, because inadvertently I think I keep holding my breath!
