I must be quick. I’ve been wrestling with my email all morning and I’ve a manuscript to revise.
There has been a lot of excitement this week. The Next Novel has found a wonderful home with U.S. publisher Doubleday. I couldn’t be happier!
In the meantime, two drive-by bits. One re. a great article: “Hollywood Shadows; A cure for blocked screenwriters” by Dana Goodyear in The New Yorker. It has something to say for any kind of writer, and with humour (which is how we survive The Writing Life).
And, speaking of humour, do watch this absolutely wonderful book trailer for Laurie Frankel’s novel Goodby for Now. It’s an example of what a good book trailer can do. I hope it goes viral!
I adore Eleanor Roosevelt, the lady with a squirrel around her neck. And Einstein: “I’m younger now than when I started it. That’s how good this book is.”
What’s your favourite part?
My favourites were The Scream and Einstein. Genius trailer. It sounds like the book has done very very well–sold in my territories. Congratulations on next novel finding a home!!
Dear Sandra! Thank you for your post! It has really improved my mood. So funny!
You see, I’m staying tuned!
;-) I am working on a response to your excellent questions, BTW! Frightfully busy right now, but I haven’t forgotten. Cheers! S.
Dear Sandra, never have any doubt about it!
I’m longing to read your answer.
I madly in love with Josephine!
Congrats, Sandra! I can’t wait to read your new novel. Loved Laurie Frankel’s trailer, especially the endorsement from The Scream (the painting). So wackily hilarious!
Thank you, Ann! I can’t wait to read YOUR next book.
I’ve watched that trailer several times, and The Scream always makes me laugh!!!
I loved the Scream too! I want those puppets!!!
OK, now I’m definitely going to have to read the book. I loved the Scream. :-)
Deborah, it seems that the Scream is the most popular. I love it!!!
