New Hampshire Reading August 11th!

The Hancock Town Library, 25 Main Street, Hancock, NH 03449

New Englanders! or visitors to New England, I'll be reading from Chanel Bonfire and talking to readers and answering questions about the book and about crazy moms and surviving crazy moms and life after crazy moms in New Hampshire this August. 

Two hours from Boston and fifteen minutes from Peterborough, Hancock is a beautiful little New England town in New Hampshire's spectacular Monadnock Region.  

I'll be reading at 7pm on August 11th.  Peterborough's Toadstool Bookshop will be there selling books and if you already have a copy, I'd be happy to sign it for you!  Afterwards, we may all walk down the street to the historic Hancock Inn for a drink!  I hope to see you there.

Night Clubbing!

With Sex Pistol, Steve Jones @ The Echoplex, Los Angeles

A thousand mea culpas, blog readers!  The kids are out of school, the car broke down and Chanel Bonfire's sequel, Heart of Glass has a deadline looming and I have been remiss!  A number of fun events in Southern California allowed me to meet more readers and I've had more fun with Book Group Skypes too.

But this past week, my rock and roll girlfriend from Chanel Bonfire, Amy Wachtel aka dj Night Nurse was in town for a great show at LA's Echoplex.  Holly Cook (managed by Amy's beau), Sly and Robbie and Bitty McClean performed.  It was a fantastic show and Amy and I picked right up, as we always do.  

Back stage we ran into the bloke above: Steve Jones from The Sex Pistols and now host of Jonesy's Jukebox on radio.  I used to phone in from my car while I was working on Chanel and waiting for the kids to get out of school and argue with Jonesy about dates and acts from my 70s London childhood.  So it was nice to meet him in the flesh.

Amy's been staying in Echo Park with her friend Roger Steffens, keeper of the world's greatest Reggae Archive.   This morning, I'm driving Amy to the airport so she can head  back to New York.  Hope to see her again soon.  But I can always listen to her on Radio Lily.  And you can too!

Arkansas Book Club Skype!

Larger than life.

Such a fun time with the Book and Cocktail Club of Fayetteville, Arkansas, last week!  These gals are fun and funny and we all had a terrific time.  I love the virtual book tour because, I get spend real time with readers -- talking and listening.  Book store readings and public appearances are great but nothing beats a sit-down with a glass of wine and true dialogue.  Thanks, ladies!

If your book club is reading Chanel, I'd be happy to Skype or Facetime with you.  Just contact me via email.
