I like San Francisco (J.C.'s folks live in Sausalito, so we visit at least once a year), but this is just a lovely apartment, and she's done quite a "posh" job decorating it. Very lovely and comfortable at the same time.
Can I ask you a off topic, writing related question? You mentioned recently in a post that you were ready to send off your current piece to first readers. My question is what would be the criteria in choosing first readers? Are they just average people, or other writers? If you feel the need to ramble about the topic that would be even better. I need all the information I can get. :)
