So, I spent this weekend shmoozing with authors and editors and agents in South Carolina. this is Robert Morgan, author of Gap Creek( Oprah book club) currently on tour for Boone. I was flattered when he knew of my poetic reference in the novel I was pitching, but as a former poet ( are you ever a FORMER poet?) I should not have been surprised. Really nice guy- as were the other authors in attendance, which flickr won't let me link to in this post, so I'll put them in another one.
