Captain's Log, Supplemental

On a positive note, yesterday I finished my first round of edits (called Macro edits at Zondervan) for Single Sashimi, the third book in my Sushi series, previously titled The Lone Rice Ball until I discovered that "rice ball" can be derogatory, which I totally did not know. Did you guys know that already?


  1. Nope, didn't know that, but then again, I've got no ethnicity!

  2. YAYAY! You got your macros done. I'm sure being around my crazy crew slowed you down. Sorry!!! :-D But we were really glad you got to visit us.

  3. Nope. Didn't know.

    But then, I think a lot of us don't know all the "negative" stuff cause WELL, we don't USE THEM.

    I had a college teacher actually tell me the word "sheen" was negative in a context I'd used it. I was referring to the sweat on a Jewish-Christian preacher's forehead at a banquet. I said, "Huh?"


    "Sorry. Not getting it."


    Sorry, but I had no clue. My first serious boyfriend was Jewish and I still had no idea. I grew up in New York City where my brother's bosses were Jewish, where I was going to go to a high school in a Jewish neighborhood..and I'd never used that word. So, clueless me.

    So, don't feel bad.
