Manuscript Wish List


If there’s anything I’ve learned from visiting the Manuscript Wish List, it’s that many agents’ first names begin with “S.”*

*I’ve learned heaps of other things, of course, but as much of it increases my writer’s angst and insecurity levels, I’ll stick with the alphabet.



For anybody who’s been wondering why I haven’t posted in, like, forever, let’s just say it involved a lot of time in Sausalito and not in a good way*, and although it’s a very beautiful town (see photo) with lot’s of great restaurants and nice people, I hope I never see it again.

*Didn’t involve prison time or abduction

Shameless Namedropping Nov 17 issue


I just finished a truly excellent and highly entertaining and fun novel,¬†The Cuban Affair¬†by Nelson DeMille. It contains both Cuba and affairs and a bunch of other stuff, too. It also mentions our friend Alan Gross, whose experience in Cuba wasn’t excellent, highly entertaining, or fun. If he writes a book about it, you should absolutely buy it.
