Friday Update 2/26

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.

Thanks for the good wishes, Daniel! Alas, I think I fail the faith test daily, but I'm trying.

Btw, congrats on those astounding blurbs for DELIRIOUS!! Can't wait to read it ...

Hurrah! And kineinahorah poo-poo to Mike, too!

(I always did want to know how to spell that)

I'm thrilled for you. No one deserves this more.
