Let me kick this off with the best one. My publicist, Stephanie Schroeder, is sending copies of The Abortionist's Daughter to various experts for cover blurbs. She got one two days after she sent out the PDF:
entertaining and entertainingly true, DeCarlo's novel gives us
the unforgettable and flawed Melanie Daniels, a heroine not only of her
time, but of every time that women struggle to be fully human." –Ruthann Robson, Professor of Law & University Distinguished Professor, CUNY School of Law, author of Dressing Constitutionally: Hierarchy, Sexuality, and Democracy
Also, for those who care, the e-book edition of The Abortionist's Daughter is on discount on Smashwords during "Read An Ebook Week," ending March 8. The Abortionist's Daughter by Elisa DeCarlo smashwords.com/books/view/171 … 75% off through March 8!
We watched the Oscars. So glad that "12 Years A Slave" won!! I was
also hoping the leading actor would win, but Matthew McCounaghey was so
brilliant in "Dallas Buyers Club" I'm okay with it. (Noblesse oblige
and all that.) Too bad they stuffed in that bzuh? tribute to "The
Wonderful Wizard of Oz." But it beat those usual "Tribute to Hollywood"
crappy production numbers. And HOW AWESOME WAS U2?? Then I stayed up
and watching The Walking Dead. Earlier on Sunday, we went to one of our
local art cinemas, which was playing "20 Feet From Stardom," which won
best documentary! It's good, a history of black back-up singers. Some
became stars (Darlene Love), others did not, but they kept singing.
And some didn't.
So Monday, I was no good at all. But today it's not as ass-freezingly cold and the laundry is done. How are all of you?
