This Warms My Cold Hard Little Heart

The UK copyeditor told my Editor/Dominatrix that she was surprised my book was a first novel.
Now THAT makes me happy. (And it should make my US Editor/Dominatrix happy too--since
she pushed me beyond the brink of sanity!!) I guess with Paris Hilton & "Tony Soprano" as the
only public figures with panic disorder people don't expect intelligent well-spoken people to have it???
Hmm, I must ponder.

Everyone Hates My Photo

At a conference this weekend, an agent commented on my author photo looking a bit too much like Tina Fey. What is wrong with Tina Fey???? Now if they said I looked like Britney Spears in a pink wig, I'd be worried. I guess the problem is "funny"--no one wants me to look funny, i have to look serious. Which is damn near impossible for me.

The Cover is Coming, The Cover Is Coming!

At least I hope it is. My agent and I asked for a minor change/addition to the US cover, to make it just a teeny bit more haunting and evocative. Will they change it? Does an unknown neophyte's opinion matter? I'm guessing no.
