Birthday wishies and literary dishies

So what makes a black-hearted, soulless editor happy on her birthday? Oh sure, the usual things apply – query letters that have a clear plot, authors who actually read the submission guidelines [which for some reason has been in very short supply the entire month of June], cover designs that come together easily, fabulous projects.

But there are other things, too.

Selling 5,000 units of Jan’s Story in three days is certainly a good way to drunk-punch an editor clean into Giddy Land.

Another good way to put the jam in my jelly doughnut is to see a nice huzzah in Daily Business Review for a really damn good book – The Writer’s Guide to the Courtroom – Let’s Quill All the Lawyers. Go, Donna!

And with that, I must go. The beagle has made reservations at the local pub/health spa/taco-ria. She even got the Rottweiler down the way to cover the phones. I’m wondering whether to be worried…

    Happy birthday, Lynn! Hope the whole day is full of great news like Jan’s Story. It’s funny – I know two other people who have birthdays today and they both have a taste for margaritas and twinkies (but you’re the only one with a beagle. Awwww, such a cutie).

    When you said 5,000 units I thought you meant margueritas, but then I thought that would just take care of the beagle and probably wasn’t enough…

    5,000 books in 24 hours, very cool

  8. Aw, thanks, everyone. Pics? Not a fecking chance. But so far the beagle is in the tank and the bar is threatening legal action. Hmm, may have worn out our welcome at this particular establishment.
