Nymphs and other news...
Literary Nymphs gave me a five nymph review for Three Days in New York City.
In case that link doesn't work, here it is:
Date: January 22, 2005
Title: Three Days in New York City
Author: Robin Slick
Genre: BDSM, Women's Fiction
Rating: 5 Nymphs
Reviewed by: Kira Stone
Summary: Elizabeth lives the life desired by so many. A devoted husband, two fine sons and a job as a high-priced lawyer that nets her enough to buy the extras that turn life from a drab existence into a pleasure. Why then is Elizabeth so unhappy? Why then does she feel like a stranger in her own house, among her closest family?
To find the answer, Elizabeth experiments with cyber sex and quickly finds a man to set her body aflame. The book actually starts with her arranging for a wicked NYC weekend with another attorney from London, Richard.
Richard does drive Elizabeth to some sexual, and emotional, places she'd never before experienced. But she doesn't discover the true kernel of her discontent until she meets up with a second cyber-buddy, Rob. Rob is not the cyber-slut that Richard is, but Elizabeth is very drawn to him. She finds he's living the life she gave up when she sacrificed her art for a stable, corporate job. He encourages her to do the same, leaving all she knows for the creative life she'd once dreamed about.
It doesn't take Elizabeth long to decide that getting a divorce, quitting her job, and moving to NYC is what she wants more than anything. A change that is far easier to say than to put into practice. She knows she will not be able to walk away from her family, her responsibilities without terrible heartache. What to do about her new revelations is a question she takes home, and only time will tell how her Three Days in New York City will impact the rest of her life.
Review: Amusing. Honest. Wicked. Three Days in New York City, published by Phaze, uses with these three words as the foundation upon which a wonderfully compelling story is built. Told from the first person perspective, it is impossible not to fall into the mind and body of the very realistic forty-something heroine as she learns more about herself in three days than most women learn in a lifetime. I strongly recommend you give this book by Ms. Slick a try. The last page will definitely leave you begging for more.

So thank you, Kira, I really appreciate that most excellent review. It was awesome of you.
In other news, I actually got to talk to Martin Bayne on the phone this morning. It was incredibly cool -- he's a very, very interesting man. We may end up collaborating on something which would be amazing. Amazing for me, that is -- I hope Martin knows what he's getting himself into. I could say a lot more and I probably will but first I'd better see if it's okay with Mr. Bayne.
Work was horrific today but I didn't jump out any windows...well, wait, to be honest it's because we can't open them, but still.
And um, in the middle of all the office insanity, I heard from another agent today. She likes the book.
I'm trying not to hyperventilate.
