|Exit the Actress: A Novel|
Here is the cover! It is ready for pre-order on Borders.com, BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com! When it says that 'someone who bought this book also bought', Philippa Gregory's The White Queen (such a marvellous book) and Barbara Kingsolver's The Lacuna--that 'someone' would be my mom. She had a pre-ordering fiesta yesterday.
I have beet dragging my little brown feetsies today as I did not want to write a new post. I want to keep up yesterday's post for yesterday's comments. I loved what everyone wrote yesterday. No, loved is the right word but the wrong word. I was astounded. The encouragement, affection, sincerity, support and generosity of spirit knocked me over.
I have never written anything that sailed under my own colors. I have always edited or assisted or co-written or ghost written. I have been half-lit, half-shadowed, tucked away, out of sight--safe. It is a wooden raft, open sea, sharky sort of scary to do this. It is my name on the book--twice. Yikes. Yesterday made me feel like I had thirty people on the wooden raft with me. It felt like the 'When You're a Jet' song from West Side Story. We are setting sail together. It feels so much better.
