My publication day. The big non-event. Don’t believe me?
My day so far: Got up, ate the usual breakfast. Read part of the NYT’s. Gave one cat her pills. Cleaned the litter box. Made the bed. Got dressed. Came into my study and began working on this book that you’ve heard so much about.
Tonight? The usual. Regular dinner. Ball game.
No call or anything from my editor. But there may be a good reason for that. Yesterday I made a huge fuss about the title. I didn’t want to use the one we’d settled on. He was not pleased. Some tart emails back and forth. Then a phone conversation. He made a strong case for the title. I gave in. Still, I don’t think he’d be too inclined to wish me anything today.
My agent is in France so no word from her. Even if she was in NYC I wouldn’t hear from her about it being Pub day. Listen to what I’m telling you: Non event.
I think I’ll finish this book tomorrow. Then I have to print it out. And get it the hell out of here.
The title is: TOO DARN HOT
