Publishers Weekly cool book stuff!

Today a Q & A with me came out in Publishers Weekly! Yay!  They also gave me a lovely review that I can’t figure out how to get a permalink to, but it is easy to get to from the interview: you just have to click the title of my book in the article.  So, I am excited.  I am also excited about 13ruetherese.com.  I’ve already put in it my sidebar though it still only features a “coming soon” banner.  But when it comes, it is going to be COOL.  The website people are doing a beautiful job.

So, I met a friend for lunch.  She randomly proposed we go to San José to surprise a dude she hadn’t seen since high school who owns a beauty salon there.  I said sure.  We mapped the place with my iphone but when we got there, there was a ballet school where the beauty shop should have been.  We asked the people there where the beauty shop might be.  We were told that we were on North First Street, that maybe the address was on South First Street.  We meandered to South First Street, where we found a beauty shop with a different name that had no entrance.  When we finally figured out how to get in (via the luxury hotel next door), we were told that the other beauty shop did not exist.  We called the phone number we had listed for the mystery beauty shop.  It rang and rang and no one answered.  We turned a corner and there was a carnival.  We rode a Ferris wheel that used to belong to Michael Jackson.

The above was not a weird, meandering dream, but my actual day.  We also got hit on a lot by carnies.

  1. What a great review, indeed–congratulations! And I’m very envious that you have a team of designers building your website–how cool is that? Have you had much say in the design process or left it mostly to them?

    • Thank you! I am bouncing all over the place. And I am dying to see the website! They did a Q&A with me and I gave them a bunch of photos and archival stuff, but the design is pretty much all them. The sample they let me look at was really pretty.

  2. Great interview! (I love short interviews because I have time to read them.) And I love the description of your day. What a crazy series of events.

  3. Elena – that’s so bizarre that my blog won’t load into your browser! No one else has told me that. Is it possible that you have an old version of your browser? I ha to upgrade last night because I couldn’t get on a commercial site.
