• Bridge Ladies

    Bridge Ladies Sometimes I think a meteor could strike the earth and wipe out mankind with the exception of my mother’s Bridge club — Roz, Bea, Bette, Rhoda, and Jackie — five Jewish octogenarians who continue to gather for lunch and Bridge on Mondays as they have for over fifty years. When I set out to learn about the women behind the matching outfits and accessories, I never expected to fall in love with them. This is the story of the ladies, their game, and most of all the ragged path that led me back to my mother.

If You Don’t Know Me By Now

Tomorrow, I’ve signed on to live tweet with Poets & Writers. What this means exactly is hard to say. But from 12-1, I am meant to field questions about being an agent/editor/writer. If you want to participate but can’t think of any questions, here are some starter questions:

  1. who is the sexiest publisher in NYC?
  2. how many pages does an editor read before typically rejecting a manuscript?
  3. do you have to know someone to get published?
  4. What is the most important social media a writer should be on?
  5. What are publishers looking for?

So if this sounds like your idea of fresh hell, please join us on #agentadvice

  1. Hahaha would love to have you as my agent. What a hoot

  2. Will Bob Dylan be singing the second question?

  3. If you’re like me, you have a love/hate relationship with Twitter. I’ll definitely have to drop in and see how things are going.

  4. Finally, a reason to figure out how to use Twitter.
