Michelle, You Tease, You

A couple of days ago Michelle Buonfiglio dropped me an e-mail.

I'd come across her name a couple of times before--she gave the cover blurb on Eve Kenin's Driven, and Lisa Lleypas thanked her in the acknowledgment section of one of her contemporaries--but I didn't really know who she was. Well, she is a great advocate for the genre, lifetimetv.com's romance columnist, and the marquee name at Romance B(u)y the Book.

And she picked up PRIVATE ARRANGEMENTS out the hundreds of ARCs she receives every months, read it, liked it, and wants to feature it. (Can you tell how thankful I am that my publisher gave PA a distinctive cover?) I feel like Lana Turner, discovered at a drugstore soda fountain.

And the woman works fast. She's already posted a fun tease for PA.

Really, I'm a little overwhelmed with the attention PRIVATE ARRANGEMENTS is getting. Maybe I should fly up to Hayden Christensen's farm up north and have a chat with him about how to deal with sudden fame. :-) Oh, look. Here's another stack of 1065 tax returns. Okay, that will do too.

Hi Sherry, congratulations! Very looking forward PA's release. Hope I will be able to savour it at the proper pace.... will see what I can do when the toddler is asleep for the day (finally)!

Congrats I can't wait until it is released. A must buy already and I am dying to read it!

Allison and Sarai,

Thanks. I hope PA lives up to its advance billing!
