The unexpected gifts of friendship
I’m lucky to have made some very supportive friends, such as Jesse Kornbluth @ HeadButler.com. It seems that whenever I lack perspective I am given a gift by one of these friends.

I reviewed Alice Bliss last year. It was full of stuff that drives me nuts, and yet I loved it. Now I’ve met its author, Laura Harrington, who, I discovered, is very much like her novel — a great talent but not showy, accomplished but not the least bit arrogant. Indeed, it wasn’t until we were parting that she mentioned that ‘Alice Bliss’ is being adapted for the theater. And that she’s just starting a book tour. I was agog. For a paperback? For a book that wasn’t a mega-bestseller? Yes, and yes. This is an encouraging sign — someone in publishing knows quality, and, better, is supporting it.
