Many things, Many moods

0786715901.01.MZZZZZZZ Naked Ambition. The book.

I'm going to be co-hosting the Derek and Romaine show next Friday 10.07 while Derek is OOT (out of town)..and yes, I'll be reminding you to listen often.

*6-10PM EST and you can listen online or on Sirius Satellite Radio

I ordered a copy of Naked Ambition (Carroll & Graf), the book that I've written a chapter in, at Amazon just yesterday. It arrived in the mail today. It's the first time I'm published in a book!!!!, and yes, that's damn exciting. However, while I'm not complaining or even frustrated because I've applied this zen approach to emotional overload in my life, I was a bit disappointed to find my name spelled wrong, both in the front of the book, and on every page of the chapter I wrote. I do love that my parents, well, the nurse in the room with my parents that day, suggested changing the spelling of my name from jamIe to jamYe, but it's been difficult to get the rest of the world to accept this change. Even if, at the end of the book, in my bio, my name is spelled right, somehow the editors at this fine book company couldn't bother to check how I spelled my name, and I even signed a form for them so they knew how to spell it correctly. So, as jaYme waxman, I hope that you will buy the book and enjoy it. The book looks great, and it's got a lot of awesome female contributors, and I've already bought so that nobody who wants to can't find me. Yes, that's because I care...

Oh, and if you want comparitive prices, it is more than $2.00 cheaper on Amazon then on Barnes and Noble.

I'm feeling a little burnt out on writing today, even though I have so much to do and so many deadlines. That's kind of a bummer, no? A writer who is too tired to want to write. I think it partially has to do with the weather. It rained this afternoon for a bit, and then stopped and now it's sunny, but the bleary, dreary weather and the cool, crisp air make me want to shut my eyes. Plus, they have the air conditioning on in the office, which, at this point in September, doesn't make all that much sense. I think the air quality here sucks too, and perhaps I'm being poisoned by air for working in a cubicle. Maybe then it's not the weather...

I just got some potentially more exciting news, even if I didn't think I could get more exciting news than a book and a fill in co-hosting slot on a radio show, but I did. So, I'm done complaining for the day. Yes. Done. For the day.
