On Sunday, September 22, I’ll be signing The Gin Lovers at the Brooklyn Book Festival, booth # 158. It will be an afternoon of books, raffles, giveaways, and 1920s decadence with my booth partner, Kevin C. Fitzpatrick of the Dorothy Parker Society, author of Under the Table: A Dorothy Parker Cocktail Guide. Hope to see you there! In the meantime, to get you in the 1920s mood, here’s my conversation with Melissa Bartolone of Literary Vixens about The Gin lovers.
When I started reading at salons and reading series around NYC, I did it to promote my novels. Now, these are the places where I get to catch up with all the new friends I’ve met along the way. Last night was one of those nights where the books were just the centerpiece of a night of catching up about life, love, careers, etc. It was fantastic. Thank you to all my friends who shared the evening at Lady Jane’s Salon. And thanks to everyone I met for the first time, and fellow authors Tracey Sorel, Carolyn Turgeon, and Grace Burrows (who had the audience in an absolute tizzy with a reading by her dashing audio reader, James Langton). And thanks, especially, to Hope Tarr, Ron Hogan, and Leanna Renee Hieber, for creating such a magical reading series.
