A funny thing happened on the way to finishing my newest novel, THINKING FOR HIM. I received a stunningly nice letter from Rob McQuilkin--from Lippincot, Massie and McQuilkin--and he loved the novel and wanted to represent it if, and here's the strange part, I would allow him to acquire an editor to edit the novel. He sent it out to an independent editor--Anika Streitfeld--who read it and said it was too "grim". Mr. McQuilkin then said he was going to try Jane Rosenman. That was nearly two weeks ago and haven't heard from him since. Nail-biting time.
