Why Writers need other writers

Today I'm over at the Stiletto Gang talking about how writers need other writers.

Oh, and I'm also talking about my dream kitchen. Here it is. Isn't it pretty?

Little Things Make Big Differences

Today, it's my turn to post over at Magical Musings. I'm talking about the importance of literary reviews and how little things can make big differences. You can check it out right here.

I'm also going to be driving home to visit the folks and attend STAR's Super Saturday which will be featuring Candace Havens. I've been excited about this for a long time!

And last but not least, going to Super Saturday means I'm giving up my FSU vs. Oklahoma football ticket, but that's okay, because Mike Geraci is taking the middle child (20 year old GAtor son) to the game. I hope my boys have a great weekend bonding and GO NOLES!

Everyone But You

Check out this wonderful collection of short stories by fellow Girlfriends Book Club author, Sandra Novack. You can download a FREE copy of one of the stories by clicking on this link


A diverting blend of plaintive sex and literary references. --The New York Times

Novack follows her lauded debut, Precious (2009), with an electrifying collection of sexy, gutsy, imaginatively compassionate stories. Her female characters are frank and assertive, even when they’re clueless, and Novack writes equally convincingly from a man’s point of view. Vividly tactile, funny, irreverent, and incisive, these stories of imperiled relationships are also richly plotted. In the blisteringly funny and tough “Fireflies,” a hot number calling herself Lola picks up a guy named Harold as they watch a used-car lot go up in flames, ultimately teaching him a thing or two about the treacheries of love and the persistence of class divides. The arrival, via priority mail, of her long-estranged, now-deceased father’s wooden leg jolts a young woman into awareness of how empty her casual sexual conquests are. In “White Trees in Summer,” an elderly man who helped his acutely suffering wife die is harassed by teenagers. Novack’s keen and spirited tales delve into the crazy and cruel situations we helplessly devise and marvel over how unfathomable we are to each other and ourselves. — Donna Seaman, Booklist

“Novack is fascinated by those on the edge: of insanity, of break-ups, of self-discovery fraught with acute pain.”—Publishers Weekly

Title Change

I've been a bad blogger lately. That's because I've been busy trying to finish and polish up my manuscript that was due August 1 (thank God for understanding editors!). On another note, The Ugly Girlfriend is no more. It's now titled A Girl Like You. At least, that's the current consensus, unless something changes. I really can't wait to see the cover for this one. I cover conferenced with my editor a couple of weeks ago and the ideas we threw around are really exciting. Of course, it's all up to the art department at Berkley, but I'm really hoping they do a tie in cover to Boyfriend of the Month Club (even though the books are completely different.) We'll see.

In a couple of hours Mike Geraci and I are off to see our youngest daughter for parents weekend at UCF. Should be a fun time. The Knights are playing Boston College tonight and I'm really hoping for a home town win.

Have a great weekend, everyone. And go Noles!
