Feeling Like the Official Author of a Real Book

This week has been terrible. It’s been one thing after another ever since Monday. Each day I would wake up and think that it couldn’t possibly get worse, and then it would: the latest fiasco was that my washing machine–which I got repaired less than three months ago for a pretty penny–broke again.

Cover Reveal!

I’m still, technically, burrowing to finish up this book. But my editor sent me the cover last week and I just couldn’t resist sharing it.

The “Year in Review” has been a theme across the blogosphere this week and though I’m a bit belated—having been busy cramming some lovely last-minute activities into 2011 like skiing and fireworks in an area of the country where a good internet connection is hard to find—I thought that it was a worthy effort toContinue reading “Dear 2011, You Win at Life: My Year in Review”
