I had another fine email, this one from Jerry Gross, the CIO at Washington Mutual who promoted me into an executive job and who named me "The Princess of Darkness." He really likes the book, and has offered to write a review when it is published. What an honor!
And I just had a call from Lauren, who is back at UNC/Chapel Hill, checking up on the book's progress, lobbing suggestions on bookstores where she thinks I can snag a reading. I guess that would start with Third Place Books Ravenna, where I spend several afternoons a week, working over a pot of tea.
