Hidden New York, and other stuff

Some people go to New York City for the shows. Some go for the museums.

The next time I go to New York, I'm going here




On other topics:

1. It's the time of year for royalty statements, wherein there was good news and bad news.

Good news: My novel has earned out! This is a very satisfying milestone for me.

Bad news: Apparently my first book, Sacagawea, is out of print. And no one told me except in royalty statement code. Sigh.

2. Am waiting for news on the next book and it's funny how many "waiting"-themed songs have been floating through my head: "Anticipation" (Carly Simon)..."Needles and Pins" (some really old group)...and other (sigh) oldies that I'd forgotten I even knew--until now.

Congratulations on earning out!

Bummer that no one told you about going OOP. You could have bought a lot of those books at a discount for school visits.

And best wishes for your new manuscript.

Hi Debby!

I'm especially bummed that I didn't get a chance to buy a lot of copies of the paperback. Oh well, live and learn.
Thanks for your other good thoughts!

Hugs on the OOP! It sucks and no question. But do ask your publisher if there are any copies in the warehouse. It sometimes takes awhile for them to get sent out to auction.

But hooray on earning out! That is a major achievement. Feel the love!

And while you're waiting, here's another waiting song:

Melissa,

THAT's the other song that floated into my head, but floated out again just as I posted above.

Sigh...definitely the hardest part...but a great song!
