Quick Update

Met a very nice author last night. Brooke, Dorchester’s sales manager, took Liz and I out for drinks so we could meet Jean Marie Pierson, a new Dorchester author who wrote an upcoming March chick lit called “No Good Girls.” We were a little nervous at first – you know how it is when people are like “You will love this person!”, but it turned out she was lovely and smart and interesting! Total writer friend potential. Brooke was so right and I’m glad she made the introduction. By the way, we went to The Blue Bar in the Algonquin on 44th Street. The legendary haunt of Dorothy Parker. Was very cool and yummy old time cocktails. They have one cocktail on the menu called the Diamond Martini – which costs $10,000 and has a diamond at the bottom of the glass. Needless to say we didn’t order that!

Tonight I’m going to dinner and then ice skating. Such a New York thing to do, huh?

I saw one of the new Shomi covers (Eve Kenin’s?) for the summer round and it’s fantastic. No more manga look – more of an urban fantasy kind of thing. But I like it a lot. Can’t wait to see mine! I also can’t wait for the final, final Dutton cover cause I want to post that too. I’ve been walking around with it in my bag and showing strangers off the street, I love it so much. (Okay, maybe not strangers, but my friends are sick of seeing it.)

On Friday Liz and I are planning a trip to see Beowulf on IMAX 3D. Need to invite Leanna and Stacy and anyone else who's around and wants to go. What do you say guys? (This is the laziest invite ever! Worse than texting.)

Okay must run! More updates soon.

If only I didn't have to work tonight, I would totally see Beowulf or at least meet up for drinks afterwards!
