I've gotten a lot of great support since posting about Charla Krupp lifting my book title for her own, upcoming book. My post was picked up on Racked.com:
And it was Re-tweeted by Brokelyn.com (a really cool/smart/funny site about getting by on the cheap -- coincidentally, it's headed up by Faye Penn, my former editor at the Post who helped me come up with the title "How Not to Look Fat") and Manhattan Users' Guide.
Thanks for everyone's supportive emails and messages on Facebook!
Over the past 24 hours I've been talking to the powers that be and I'm hoping this problem can be quickly resolved. I'll post updates here.
