“As a reader, I was fascinated and awed first by the whole idea of The Novel: Live! project; second, by the number of writers who agreed to participate; and finally, by the fact that Hotel Angeline actually came to a delicious fruition. . . Enjoy Hotel Angeline. I know that I did.”—Nancy Pearl, author of Book Lust and Librarian of the Gods
