Deja vu

Today, in an exact repeat of yesterday, there was no article in The Daily News about my book. Others might be quick to point out that there was also no article about my book in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, BusinessWeek, Institutional Investor, Time, People, Vanity Fair, Playboy, Good Housekeeping, Glamour, Redbook, Family Circle, New Woman, Highlights, The New England Journal of Medicine or Teen Beat.

However, in the department of The Universe is Writing My Press Release, I saw the following item in Newsday today:

Patricia Heaton, a two-time Emmy winner for her work on "Raymond," is starring in an as yet untitled half-hour for ABC about a recently widowed woman who begins a new life after joining the PTA.

Dear ABC: May I suggest a title?

Ellen! This is too weird (in a good way). All of the stars are lining up and pointing at YOU.

I'm still betting we're going to see your mention in the paper this week.

Ellen said...

Myf, you'd think by now I'd be used to WAITING for things, but it never gets any easier.

Anyway, fingers crossed!

Myfanwy Collins said...

It's hard, though, Ellen--especially when expectations are set--to wait for such things.

Jordan E. Rosenfeld said...

Holy cow, talk about catching a wave!! You were on the cutting edge.

I say you get your agents to pitch a TV agent and spin off an HBO series on your book :)

No, waiting does not get easier. Never. Especially when the things you wait for are bigger and more public!

Your day is coming, bet on that, Ellen.

I can see a feature article with you in People -- and the photo of you looks freaking mah-velous!


Melanie Lynne Hauser said...

Send her your book, Ellen! I should definitely send her mine - I always thought she'd be a good Super Mom in any Hollywood version.

Ellen said...

Jordan, do you feel like you spend your whole life waiting? It's maddening!!!!

Lori ... thank you dahling! An article in People would be pretty freaking cool. :)

Melanie ... that's a GREAT idea. I'll see if my agents can figure out how to get it to her. And yeah, she would make a perfect Birdie!!!

Ha! I saw that Patricia Heaton blurb and was going to email it to you. I heard Clooney is producing it. (Just kidding.)
