Book Passage


Mélanie and I had a great time at the Gilded Deceit Launch Party at Book Passage on Saturday! Thanks to everyone who came – for those who couldn’t make it, here’s a photo diary that captures some special moments from the day.

A late toast to close out a lovely day!

The Gilded Deceit Launch Party is almost here! This Saturday, June 3, at 4:00 pm, at Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd., Corte Madera, CA. I’ll be reading from and talking about Gilded Deceit, taking questions, and signing books. We’ll have wine, sparkling water, and light hors d’oeuvres. It should be a really fun afternoon. Do stop by if you’re in the area – you can read more details here. If you can’t make it but would like a signed copy, you can contact Book Passage and arrange it, and I’ll personalize the book on Saturday. Mélanie and I were thrilled to see Gilded Deceit on display when we stopped by the store last week. Book Passage is a great place, so supportive of writers!

Meanwhile, if you’ve read Gilded Deceit, do share your thoughts here or on the Google+ Group (and on other social media if you feel like it).

Now I need to figure out what to wear Saturday…




Last Saturday, May 30, I had the fun of being back at my favorite bookstore, Book Passage, for a launch event for The Mayfair Affair. Always a treat for a writer to be able to talk about her books :-). Mélanie made the day for me. When we pulled into the parking lot, I said “We’re here because Mummy’s going to talk about her books.” Mélanie said, “I think you should talk about my books.” I said, “What books do you want me to talk about?” She replied, “Pride and Prejudice is my favorite.” (She has a couple of children’s versions of Pride and Prejudice).

For those who missed the event, here’s a photo diary, from arrival at the store through  a lovely dinner with friends afterwards.

And to keep the Mayfair discussion going, I’d love to hear what readers think of the state of Malcolm and Suzanne’s relationship in this book, three months on from the revelations of The Berkeley Square Affair.

Happy weekend!
