  1. I’m a writer too (full-time freelance/self-employed since last October — SCARY!!!!), and I just perused a few of your posts — good stuff!

    Oh and by the way: Go back to Haughty once again, but only if you use the word “summer” as a verb in the pitch. Perhaps the tone will change?


    I am in full-on pitch mode to national glossies right now. I’m wishing you luck…will you return the favor and send some good mojo-juju my way, too?

  2. I checked out your blog for a while and a gotta say it’s pretty funny. I love your sense of humor and your title too. Awesome. Loved your description and the fact that you want “to occupy shelf real estate at major and/or minor bookstores” me too πŸ™‚ Glad to meet you.

  3. I started reading at your latest post to date and kept scrolling down but couldn’t stop! Your writing is really entertainingly humourous and I love your observations. I thought it’d be most appropriate to say hi here seeing I just kept reading your blog like a book you can’t put down. Lovely to have stumbled across it – I’m subscribing! πŸ™‚

  4. Oh My Gosh.- “Out of the mouths of babes”. FInally some real commen sense. I am totally with you on this Alena. I saw my nephew on this for years and years and now that he is older he has to adjust NOW becasue he never learned about self control as a child because of Ritalin. I am so with you on this one Girl.
    Full Exposure notice. Regarding Alena’s previous post, I am not related to her nor do I know her personally. I am just a reader and Alena is a good Writer!
    you Go Girl!
    Nuff Said

  6. Hi Alena-

    I’m very happy my random blog surfing has brought me to your place! Great blog and congrats on all your success! I share your love of using nouns as verbs- it’s truly a lost art.

    All the best,

  7. I’ll see what I can do about getting you mocked by Me. Colbert. I have sat in front of him at Mass on a Sunday or two. But as I am now trending toward agnosticism in my middle age, those opportunities are diminishing.
