Sorry for not updating this page sooner, but I've been swamped!
While the manuscript of my new novel of romantic comedy is out there in publishers' hands and I continue to promote the ebook editions of the backlist novels (The Fussy Librarian, a great newsletter for fans of e-books, just featured both Best Enemies and Sis Boom Bah), another very hush-hush writing project fell into my lap and it's got a very tight deadline. I can't announce it just yet, but I hope to be turning in the manuscript by mid-May and once it's ready to go I'll share the exciting news about it. Meanwhile, I'll just say it's fiction - a novella, to be more specific - and something completely new for me. Oh, and it's got a Hollywood connection, on the TV side. Shhhhhhh.
Speaking of Hollywood, no news about An Ex to Grind - the movie, that is. As I wrote last time, Cameron Diaz and Benecio Del Toro are no longer attached, but there are other possibilities being tossed around. We'll see. There's always a producer who emails to inquire about movie rights to the books, and I wouldn't be surprised if one of these days some of the more movie-friendly stories like Princess Charming, Best Enemies and The Secret Ingredient find their way to the screen.
On the nonfiction side, it's baseball season so my Yankees book, Confessions of a She-Fan, is once again bringing out new readers and I couldn't be more thrilled. I love it when they write to me and relate their own stories of fandom. And my caregiver book, You'd Better Not Die or I'll Kill You: A Caregiver's Survival Guide to Keeping You in Good Health and Good Spirits, generates steady interest from those caring for a friend or family member with a chronic or progressive illness. If anyone's interested in having me come and speak on the subject, my lecture bureau, Speakers on Healthcare, is the place to contact. For more about the book, check out the video below.
Till next time!
