. . . yesterday -- But, the secret of my happiness (and I'm a very happy person despite numerous tragedies) has always been that I forget most good news until it actually happens. That said, I just have to say that Bryce called twice, saying that DRIVE had made it past the second editorial committee of the NY Times for a review in December; and, that Poets & Writers has commissioned a 2,500 word profile with a deadline of Dec. 2, which means, the two might come out at the same time -- and, I may even be P&W's cover girl in December! (The book comes out, officially, Jan. 1, 2006. But you can order a signed, personalized copy to be delivered TODAY with all shipping & handling paid, for a mere $25! Drive is five separate books in one handsome hard-bound first edition of 320 pages & you can get an early copy just for being LD's Blog Buddy and taking advantage of this generous pre-season offer. Go to this link to an earlier post for more info or click on my Amazon pay button at the bottom of the sidebar for a quick & secure pay page.
