He talked about the book in laudatory fashion, I picked it up when I saw it on a shelf because of his comments. To be clear. heh.]
“Novel rejected? There is an e-book gold rush!” (Washington Post)
Literary Hill BookFest – a new, annual event to celebrate Capitol Hill (Washington, D.C.) writers.

And, finally, another party to which I am late: A Rat in the Book Pile has been ripping through a number of great books recently, including The Master and Margarita which I loved.
