I identified myself as a fan, told her I was reviewing her essay, and asked if she'd be willing to answer a few questions. She was…See More

"Ah yes, Amalesh. I did not work with him but knew who he was. And many of my students were close with him. I was in meetings with Pramod sometimes, but didn't know him well. My husband, Ted, worked more directly with him. SMALL WORLD! "

Melanie Bishop commented on the blog post '[PATH TO PUBLICATION] That Awkward Promotion Phase'
"Hey Elizabeth! Boy do I know this icky feeling of which you speak. If you think about it, promotion is a sales activity and most writers I I know are the LAST type of people to ever go into sales. And that's even if we're selling something…"
