Well, there has been a lot going on in the blogosphere, not to mention the world, while I’ve been busy with the giveaway and all my usual obligations. So thought I’d do a little list of wonderful news:
1. Two of my very good friends are now moms! This IS exciting for both of them and for their families (and friends, too!).
Sage Cohen gave birth to Theodore (Theo) Robertson Luchs-Cohen. He was born Wednesday, September 17 at 11:40 a.m. weighing 8 lbs, 14 oz and measuring 20.5 inches long.
And Kristin Bair O’Keeffee and her husband Andrew traveled from Shanghai to Vietnam (actually from Maine to Shanghai to Vietnam but that’s another story) to pick up their long-awaited daughter, Tulliver (Tully) Quinn Loan O’Keeffe. She is beautiful. 🙂
You can read up on both moms’ adventures (and misadventures) on their respective blogs:
3. My wonderful editor, Jane Friedman, has been promoted to Publisher & Editorial Director of the F+W writing communities. I’m so happy for her! She is totally deserving of this promotion and will bring her intuitive vision, excellent judgment, and ten years of veteran experience to the job.
4. My equally wonderful agent, Rita Rosenkranz, was featured in MediaBistro.com today and guess which of her clients’ books she decided to feature with her profile?
Did you guess yet?
7. And under bragging rights, I’ve been invited to teach a workshop at Wordstock Festival of Books this year. I will offer “Nonfiction Writing Rhythms” on Saturday, Nov. 8th from 12:45-1:45 PM.
