South Carolina

Last weekend my book tour took me to South Carolina. When my publicist originally told me I’d be going to South Carolina for a weekend in January, I thought, “Fantastic! It’ll be WARM!” My Aunt Mary moved from Massachusetts to South Carolina ten years ago, and she’s always bragging about 70 degree days while we’re up here shoveling snow. I arrived at Myrtle Beach last Thursday evening, and it was 36 degrees. So not warm. Ah well. I wasn’t there to sun bathe or play golf anyway. On Friday, I was the Moveable Feast author at Pawleys Plantation. It was a great event, attended by about 150 people (mostly women, a few brave men). I talked for about 40 minutes and then opened the floor to a lively

Top Ten Best Things About My Trip to NYC

I went to NYC on Tuesday with the plan to travel to Madison, CT that night with my publicist to attend a book event at RJ Julia’s. But alas, Mother Nature had other plans and threw a huge snow storm at us. The event has been moved to February 2, 7 pm. So, no book event in CT or NYC, but I had a great time! Here are the top ten highlights: 10. The FOOD. Oh my, the FOOD. Especially memorable–the lobster sandwich at Oceans. 9. NYC Firemen. On my first night, when I should’ve been at RJ Julia’s, there was an electrical fire and people were trapped in an elevator in my hotel.

Launch Party!

On Thursday, Where the Sidewalk Ends (one of the two independent bookstores in my small town–we’re so lucky here!) hosted a most fabulous launch party for LEFT NEGLECTED. The store was all decked out in lights, red apples, and more copies of my book than I could count! Here’s a photo of the wonderful women from Where the Sidewalk Ends who made it all happen. A special and heartfelt thank you to Joanne and Caitlin Doggart, the store’s owners (the two lovely ladies to my left). I had a blast sharing this night with so many close friends, family, and enthusiastic readers from the Cape and beyond. And when I say beyond, I’m not kidding. The highlight of the night for me was meeting Mike and his

Belated Happy Pub Day!

I had planned to enter my first LEFT NEGLECTED blog post yesterday, on Publication Day, but it was such a whirlwind day, I didn’t have time. Well, that’s not entirely true. I had plenty of time to be on Facebook–to spread the word and thank friends and family and fans for their support. And the embarrassingly compulsive/addictive behavior of checking my rank began again, so I had time for that. But I spent most of the day going to book stores, signing stock, saying Hi and Thanks and jumping up and down with some of my favorite booksellers. I actually screamed when I saw this display at Where the Sidewalk Ends here in Chatham. Oh, and I bought three copies of USA Today at Stop & Sh
