    1. Dear Erika,

      I used to live in New York, from the mid-eighties to the early 90s and then again from the mid-90s to about 1998. Your name is so familiar to me! I bet I’ve read your book but then, I still average a book (or more) a day — it’s a serious habit — so you’d have to remind me (I know, not very flattering, but it doesn’t mean I didn’t love it). My first novel, Velocity, was published by Random House in ’88, and then Viking Penguin published Some Girls in 1994 but I didn’t manage to get Hollywood Savage finished till recently, and when Simon & Schuster published it last year I was stunned at how much everything had changed (basically, the absolute and total lack of promotion) — I tinker w/the idea of self-publishing, but I figure if I can’t stand doing the promotional work now, it will only be worse if ALL of it is up to me!
      Anyway, I love this site — I am now leading a writing workshop (the East Bay Writers’ Studio) here in Oakland, CA, and taking on freelance editing jobs (including copy editing) — if you know of anyone working on a ms who might be interested, I’d be truly grateful.
      Hope your own writing is going well!
      Sincerely,
      Kristin

    2. p.s. stew-pid me, now I see the synopsis of your book and realize no, I have not read it. I cannot imagine forgetting that.
