Reading IS Sexier in Paris!

Bonjour, mes amis! My big news today is that my novel, Amorous Woman, has taken a special flight over to the City of Lights to be featured on Maitresse, the very smart and elegant blog of Lauren Elkin, a literary lady who divides her time between Paris and Tokyo. Lauren's interview questions definitely got me thinking in a new way and I really enjoyed answering them--the flavor is definitely gourmet. So, if you're in the mood for an exquisite buttery croissant and a bowl of cafe au lait, please pop on over to Paris and leave a comment, if you are so inspired. Bon Appetit!

That was a wonderfully stimulating conversation, on both sides! And I thought it was great that Ms. Elkin, though not a frequent erotica reader, showed a full appreciation for what a book like Amorous Woman strives to accomplish (and, imo, does accomplish!).

I agree with Jeremy — the same thing struck me about Lauren in the context of that interview, and I felt very appreciative of it.

Sorry I was late getting to the interview, too, Donna. I checked in as soon as I had personal time online yesterday! (Such a wacky schedule lately.) It was a lovely read, and I'm so glad to see you and Amorous Woman get such appropriate recognition.

Thank you, Emerald and Jeremy!
