Rachel,

I read "Love Junkie" this week and congratulate you on a finely written memoir. It broke my heart. I can't release the images of you and your brother as children. All the choices and destruction that followed made far too much sense given the beginnings. Your success as a writer is the happy ending.
Best,
Mel

Hi Rach, thanks for the invite I don't know how you have time to do all this PR and blog, too. Missed your last year debut, glad to see you are back in SM in December to round out the chapter I heard you read long ago at UCLA...Wife Goes On is a book club pick this month, even to there are still typos on the back cover adn everyone gone from publisher who was attached, so I'm jugglling book pimping with writing, hate that, just finished a class (you still at UCLA?) then was Paris where bf was teaching (yay) but had to get housesitters, don't trust my teenagers remember too well my own, then lost my bday bracelet a month after home burglary so life it its usual mix of trying to keep up, finish my novel while paying for groceries ---and taking it out on paper..I always cast myself as the murderer, ...love your website, what's up with you besides junky? I need tequila soon. xo

Hi Rachel - The previous press was Golden Books. They were starting an adult list and I was one of their first purchases. Big promises, big bucks, then they went under, which I suspected all along. St. M's did nothing except put an ugly cover on my book and start the printer. I hired my own publicist and that worked great until she quit the firm! This time I am fully prepared to do it myself, and, yes, I will definitely join the marketing group for support. Are you one of the founders of this site? It's great to find so many women at about the same stage in their careers - not world famous, but not wannabe writers either.

Hi Rachel,

Picking up this convo from the Anthologies group . . .
Would love to spill about the two more "What Was I Thinking's" :-) Hopefully soon at an L.A. writers event. Look forward to meeting you in person. -S.

Hi Rachel - Thanks for welcoming me! I just found out about and joined this group yesterday. Resnick is my husband's name, you're right. St. M's wasn't too good to me, but I landed there after being orphaned by another house that folded. This site is overwhelmingly cool. Any advice on where to look first?
