Hi dear readers! So, as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago in my last report, I finished writing my book. Since then I’ve rewritten chapter headings and the title itself, and did a proofreading pass through it, plus edited bits that needed it along the way. I also added some photos to the Appendix. By the way, the book is now called (drum roll):
SURVIVING HOLLYWOOD NORTH:
Crew Confessions from an Insider
(It was previously called “Our Driver Has No Car: Tales from the Trenches of Hollywood North.” The new title is spiffier, I think. Thanks to my son Jeremy, who helped me so much with its metamorphosis.)
The book is a memoir of my adventures toiling in the film business in Montreal as a script coordinator during the 1990s.
I have now shoved my little opus out of its nest (i.e., my computer) and on to my beta readers. These are friends and family members especially known for their honesty and great taste in reading. 😉
Profuse thanks go to them for their dedication; I will report back to you as soon as I have feedback from all of these fabulous people!
