It's an ongoing project that she'll check up on in a few weeks! Olandra: OMG. I'm so nervous. We're also in charge of that crotchety old freelancer who never sends in any of her fact-checking. That's, like, two semi-permanent assignments. The Heavy One: And we just got handed that half-page front-of-book spread about sequins! I've talked to like five publicists this week.
