Free event in NYC with Janet Reid and Donald Maass

At the end of this month, Jenny Milchman and I have the privilege of appearing with agents Janet Reid and Donald Maass at an NYC Barnes and Noble. Details below. Mods, feel free to move this to Announcements if you prefer. We thought it could be a good fit for "Ask the Agent" because of, well, the agents ;-) Those members interested in "asking an agent" may well be particularly interested in this opportunity.

Is your new year's resolution to finish your novel, or to start one? Join literary agents Janet Reid ("Query Shark") and Donald Maass ("Writing the Breakout Novel"), in discussion with authors Jenny Milchman ("Cover of Snow") and Emily Winslow ("The Start of Everything") for advice, inspiration, and solid ideas for making this your year.

all thanks to the myopia of individual perspectives and the self-centeredness of individual desires.

If you're drinking beer with me, you'll need BOTH of those kidneys.
