This is it. Time for some Eros.

The reader just dropped off my ms. She said there weren't too many typos (phew) and that she really liked it.

I will be fixing the corrections this weekend and working on my query letter.

If I had not been in Toronto I would not have known Eros Ramazzotti has a greatest hits CD coming out this month (with a few new singles added). I heard this song on an Italian music station. It was the number one song on the countdown. Ricky Martin sings pretty well in Italian. I don't want to hear anyone speak ill of my Eros. I don't care if he is cheezy. He also records his CDs in Spanish and is huge in Latin America.

To celebrate finishing my book and my upcoming trip to Venice, it's going to be Italia week here at This will be much more fun than stressing about sending the ms out to agents or worrying about the writers strike.

Love the song, love the video! This brings me to summer. It's windy and rotten here in MI, so I'm grateful.

And congrats on the ms!

confessions - grazie. Yes Eros is fine, nasally voice and everything.

jen - thanks. It's grey here as well.

gibber - young girl, you need to educate yourself. :) Of course I never heard of him until I went to Italy. Spike Lee directed one of his older videos.
