Where in the World is Janet Reid?

We take time out from our regularly scheduled programming to ask, where in the world is Janet Reid?

She has not posted in 5 days...yes 5. I am concerned. I have a few ideas of what might have happened so hear me out and let me know if you think I'm close.

1) She became fed up with reviewing the horrendous amount of unreadable material sent to her on a daily basis and snapped. She has since left the country and is lounging on a beach somewhere being waited on by half naked Hawaiian boys and sipping pina coladas.

2) She was actually the anonymous commenter on Nathan's website last Thursday. http://blog.nathanbransford.com/2009/10/on-pointlessness-of-questioning-whether.html and is still pondering the diversity of today's publishing trends and how their very diversity makes them not diverse....or some crazy crap like that.

3) She is in secret meetings in Washington to help politicians come up with better ideas to save the country. Or at least help them to word it better. Show not tell, people.

4)She has been asked to lead the Justice League...wait that's not real is it?

Please come back....


  1. That's a long time for Janet...

    Found you on Nathan's blog. I loved your opening paragraph and had to see who'd written it. Sounds like the kind of book I'd enjoy reading.

  2. Laura, thank you so much! Can you believe all the entries over there?

  3. When it got past 1,000 entries I realized that other people like/read Nathan as much as I do ... shocker, I know.

    Oh, and sorry about Janet possibly leaving the country...

  4. Marsha,

    I like the Justice League or Hawaiiain possibility. Those are hysterical LOL

  5. It's crazy over there! How on earth will Nathan do it?


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
