On the Agenda for May…

I.LOVE.SPRING.  It’s my favorite time of year, second only to fall.  Here in New York, spring tends to be fairly erratic in terms of temperature, so I’ve been SO GRATEFUL  for the generally lovely weather we’ve been enjoying lately!

Fact: My “to read” pile is a bit gargantuan, and I blame March and most April for that.   As I mentioned in January, as part of my job, I have the privilege of sitting on the panel for two different prizes our publishing house awards to new, unpublished authors annually.  I spent March reading the final five finalists’ manuscripts.  So much fun, but unfortunately, not reading I could talk about!  And now I’m left with quite  sizable “to review”  and “to read” piles.  Quite.  Sizable.

I’m excited to share my thoughts about…
