Author, freelance editor and speaker Kristen Lamb (repped by Russel Galen of Scovil Galen Ghosh Literary, Inc. in NYC) offers much on her blog. In her latest post, she jabs The House at The End of the Street, pointing to foreshadowing, or the lack of it, as an important element to movie watchers’ satisfaction. Same with readers, and writing. If you’re not familiar with her site, peek at the latest post, plus sign up to participate in her monthly contest. Not only is she a giver, but you can snag one of her best-selling books: We Are Not Alone–The Writer’s Guide to Social Media or Are You There, Blog? It’s Me, Writer as additional resources for your writing repertoire.
Speaking of givers, one of my associates offered me a 1912 typewriter as a gift to my publishing firm. Yes, that’s it, pictured above: Anna, you are a special lady, thanks for your generous contribution to my company. The big announcement should come next week, name and imprints, after one last meeting with my attorney tomorrow. But with Anna’s present in mind, I pass along a fun video, the making of a book, circa 1940s. Porn for Book Lovers. Sorry I couldn’t embed it…Aren’t you glad we’ve evolved?
