I'm excited (and a little nervous). I also learned someone is turning it into an audio drama, so more on that later when I have the details!

Thanks to everyone who supported the Kickstarter for the anthology, and I hope you enjoy the stor Read more of this blog post »

Tina Fey
“So, my unsolicited advice to women in the workplace is this. When faced with sexism, or ageism, or lookism, or even really aggressive Buddhism, ask yourself the following question: “Is this person in between me and what I want to do?” If the answer is no, ignore it and move on. Your energy is better used doing your work and outpacing people that way. Then, when you’re in charge, don’t hire the people who were jerky to you.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants
