I HEART NY & MY NEW AGENT

Hotel room view - uptown from the Bowery
Well, my agent meeting went well yesterday. She suggested a few things so I will be re-writing a little when I get home. She's lovely and we got on well, but I knew that from talking to her on the phone. So, all in all, a very positive meeting and I am now officially excited about my American novel. Yay!
Brekkie at McNally Jackson
Next stop, San Francisco for my chapbook launch. It is chapbook heaven here in NY - I had to stop myself buying tons of them in McNally Jackson. What a book shop! Filled with covetable books, notebooks, cards. Impossibly cool staff too. And it's hard not to love a book shop that serves granola and OJ.

I thought I would let you know that someone is copying your blog and passing it up as their own. I know because the same person did it to me with my blog. He currently has about 10 different blogs, I'm guessing they are all someone else's copyrighted material. Take a look http://writewritingtowrite.blogspot.com

Thanks, Violet, I will investigate. Very odd.
