Pod Person


Much good news to share. First, my novel, Switchcraft has been formally accepted by my publisher. What this means is that I get paid and my publisher likes it enough not to ask for their money back. Remember when that happened to Joan Collins?

Second, my interview with Nancy Marmolejo, founder of the award winning Comadre Coaching, is now posted on her podcast. I listened to it yesterday and realized I need to do something about all the "ums" I use in interviews and presentations before my gig at the San Diego Head to Toe event on November 10th.

Sorry but that's all I've got for today. I finished the first draft of act I of my WIP and now I'm slowly torturing myself to death by drafting a synopsis.

Congratulations on Switchcraft- that's always a good feeling- even though I'm sure there was never a possibility of it being returned! And I have a great Joan Collins story, if we shall one day meet!

PS- I ordered my Dwight bobble head doll yesterday. He is going to be my muse. Jealous??

Congrats again on Switchcraft. Is it still going to be called that?

And I hear you about "ums". Those were the bane of my existence in my MUN days. That and "like" and "dude" and...hmmm...some things never change. ;)

"Ums" or not, you'll be great. You always are.

Thanks everyone! It was such great news yesterday. I'm not sure if the title is sticking. Either way, I'll let y'all know.

Alyson, we're getting a repeat tonight. Wahhhh!!!! You know what might be better than a Dwight bobble head? A Joan Collins as Alexis Carrington bobble head!

Cheerio,
Mary
