  1. What an eclectic writing life! I hope you find a new agent soon for whatever project you are pursuing.


    • Thanks. Right now I’m just working on becoming a better writer. Too much focus on the business side tends to take away from the love of writing. But as soon as the novel I’m working on is as done as I can get it, I’ll be back on the front lines seeking an agent


  2. Wish more book reviews got to the “meat and potatoes.”


  3. Jane, I have a book coming out later this year called One of the Few. I would love for you to give it a read. Let me know if you would be interested in doing a review. http://www.jasonbladd.com


  4. Thank you for your service, Jason.


  5. Hi Jane,

    Any clue if there is going to be a new edition of the Barron’s Dictionary of Marketing Terms? The newest one is the 4th, from 2008.
