At last I have good news to report! My brilliant (!), visionary (!!), market-savvy (!!!) Putnam editor made an offer on my new proposal. (I would add that she's also cute, but I don't want to lay it on too thick.)
Anyway, I'm thrilled that I still have a career and am so damned excited about this book. The working title is FAREWELL, DOROTHY PARKER, and it will be published in hardcover by Putnam in 2012, with a Berkley paperback to follow.
More details, soon.
That's about all I want to say about my week, except for one more thing, which I offer with a big kineinahorah poo-poo ... it looks very much like I may have good news to report next week for my husband's career as well.
Enjoy your weekend.
