Reports of My Departure Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

At the beginning of this year I was fairly certain that I would be moving from New York to L.A. in May.  Now a personal difficulty has raised its ugly head (which I won’t go about describing here) and as a result it looks as if I will be staying in New York for a longer period of time.  So!  If you were already erasing my name from your mailing list, think again.  I’m here for a slightly longer haul, baby.

    I hope everything works itself out for you. Good luck!

  2. Sending condolences for the personal hard times… but I’m also thinking yay! May all your dreams come true!

  3. Betsy,

    All the best and here’s hoping it all works out in the most ideal way possible.

  4. Dan Santat says:

    Well, Betsy, We here in L.A. would welcome you with warm open arms if and whenever you choose to do so.

  5. Thanks for the kind words, y’all. And Dan, don’t you worry. I am still getting out there someday, I am sure.

  6. Chrisin NY says:

    Hurray for us (but sorry for you!)
    Living in LA is overrated (I speak from 28 years of living there and 10 years of visits back)

  7. Mysterious.

  8. All will become clear to you tomorrow night, Dan.

  9. Jennifer Schultz says:

    I came here looking for your posts about the awards (I came back from Denver two days ago and we were closed yesterday) and saw this. I hope things work out in the end, and quickly. All the best to you.

  10. “All will become clear to you tomorrow night, Dan.”

    –with a slight case of… murder!
