I’m Like a Rash

Thursday, September 1, 2016

I’ve met people whose knowledge and everything else will die with them, as Shel Silverstein conceived in this poem: I’m grateful to report that Jennifer S. Brown is no such hoarder. She selflessly forked over all she learned and endured as first at bat. Aya explained the “conceptual cover” and convinced me there’s no harm asking contacts for support (after all, the boys all do it). Louise laid the emotional reality…

Want to be charmed? Read THE CITY BAKER’S GUIDE TO COUNTRY LIVING!

THE CITY BAKER'S GUIDE TO COUNTRY LIVING by Louise Miller
Thursday, August 11, 2016

 August is the perfect month for Louise Miller’s debut– THE CITY BAKER’S GUIDE TO COUNTRY LIVING– to hit shelves. Why? Because it’s the end of summer; the season change is upon us.

While we still eagerly await the launch of Abby’s book come January,…

A Different Side of NYC: The Launch of UPTOWN THIEF

Uptown Thief by Aya de Leon
Tuesday, August 2, 2016

This week we celebrate the launch of Aya’s book, UPTOWN THIEF, which is a thrilling story of a Robin Hood–style madam in New York, Marisol, who steals from rich alpha males and runs a high-class prostitution business to fund her health clinic for women with nowhere else to turn. I’ve written elsewhere about reading out of genre, and I will say that UPTOWN THIEF is not a book that I…
