A Must-Read Book

Although of course there a million books I love, I've never recommended one in particular (until now). I cannot say enough about Swann's Last Song- it is truly a fantastic book, even for someone who doesn't read a lot of mysteries (me). It's smart and beautifully written and absolutely page-turning, which is essential to (and not so easy to find) a great summer read....

Swann's Last Song is written by Charles Salzberg, my friend, writing teacher, and mentor...and one hell of a terrific guy. I promise you won't be disappointed. You can click here to order a copy.

The New Paperback Jacket

Today Is The Day!

I'm so excited to announce that Chasing Harry Winston is out today in paperback!!!

Now, I'm a hardcover lover. They're easier to read in bed, they look better on a bookshelf, and stacked properly, they can make a dynamite impromptu table for people who have lived in their "new" apartment for eight months but still haven't committed to a coffee table. Ahem.

But those sweet, small paperbacks are beginning to win me over (especially since mine comes out today). You can't beat them for beach reading, plane reading, sneak-a-chapter-in-class-or-work reading, and hell, in this economy, who wants to invest in a hardcover? (Sorry Simon & Schuster, please pretend you didn't see that.)

So go ahead and get yours today at Amazon or Barnes & Noble or an awesome little independent book store in your town.

Go paperback! And please come join me on Facebook for more updates, idle musings, and hopefully--should I ever work up the nerve--pictures from recent events and trips.

Thanks to all of YOU for being the best readers on earth.

xoxo Lauren
