Hi from San Francisco!June 11th, 2011

I’m especially excited because I spent eighth grade living in Carmel, CA (those of you familiar with the Mediator series know all about Carmel. It’s where Suze lives. I went to the Mission School, too)! We used to go up to San Francisco for special occasions. Though I’m basically just going to be there overnight, it’s still always fun to visit San Francisco and reminisce about throwing up over the ferry on the way to Alcatraz.
And of course I’m addicted to Naperville Pawn. That’s not the only reason I’m excited to be back in Naperville, IL, of course, because I love Anderson’s Bookshop.
But it’s a new reason to love it, because I caught a marathon of the new show on TLC about a couple of pawn shop divas (and I couldn’t BELIEVE it when they turned away that Judith Lieber clutch, so I have some things to discuss with everyone in Naperville, besides my new book Abandon of course).
And I have NEVER. BEEN. TO. BOSTON (let alone Wellesley).
I know. Home of Robert B. Parker’s (may he rest in peace) world famous detective, Spenser, and every Ben Affleck character in every movie he’s ever made (except Armageddon). Don’t get me started on how excited I am.
So I hope I’ll see some of you at one of the above stops, and if not, there’s always:
The Romance Writers of America conference , which starts at the hugest signing of all time at the Times Square Marriott in New York City on Tuesday, June 28 (open to the public)!
I know. I can barely contain myself. But more on this in a later blog because they’re about to call my flight!
In the meantime, here’s a secret: She Went All The Way is being offered for a limited time at 4.99 on all sorts of eBook sites!
And look out for some minor changes to this site in the coming days (in other words, if it’s down, don’t panic), and be sure to click here to see if I’ll be stopping by a town near you later this month (or even this July for my Overbite tour)!
(Have you seen new Insatiable series webpage? I know! So pretty!)
And yes, I know what you’re thinking:
Where can I get that apron? Willams Sonoma!
But who’ll be taking care of Henrietta while Meg’s gone?
Don’t worry, Henrietta will be well provided for, not only by He Who Shall Not Be Named In This Blog, but by various back-up caretakers, hired for their extreme dedication and cat skills and who, unlike me, do not call her ‘direwolf’ now after Game of Thrones.
See you soon!
