When I announced the publication of In Hot Pursuit, the first question anyone asked me was, “So when are you having a party?” My circle of friends needs little excuse to get together! 😉

I finally had a little private book party last night at Madame X, which is a really great bar, should you find yourself in the New York area and in need of libations. They’re no strangers to romance writers, either; they host Lady Jane’s Salon on the first Monday of every month. (I’ve never been, because I only just discovered it exists, but now I think I might check it out!) The lounge has these big red couches and, as a friend observed, it’s got kind of a bordello vibe.

So, some friends and fellow writers group members came to celebrate. We had cocktails and snacks and I read a little bit from the novel. It’s a little strange reading a story told from a first-person male POV when you are a lady wearing a dress, but I persevered. I do contend that my North Jersey accent made it all the more authentic; Noah is from the New York area, after all. It was fun, kind of the frosting flower on top of the cake that has been this whole process.

And my little book is on the front page of All Romance eBooks today, so that’s kinda cool. I still get giddy when I see the cover sometimes. You can get the book there now, or directly from Loose Id.
