Havin' a Party... and You're Invited!

Hey, everyone--

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving and are at least half as stuffed as I am... I am literally writing this with the computer on the bed and me on my knees next because I'm too top-heavy to lift myself up any further. Having said that...

Wanted to give you all an official invitation... to my L.A. book party!

As you know, my TV book, Small Screen, Big Picture: A Writer's Guide to the TV Business, came out on Tuesday from Random House and Mediabistro... so Mediabistro and I are having a party!

It's this Thursday at the Standard Hotel in Hollywood. Click HERE for all the info and to RSVP (be sure to RSVP so you get on the list). You can come by, say hello, grab a drink, and pick up a copy of the book!

Hope to see you all there!
