I know I’ve been a one station radio these days, going on and on about Through a Dusty Window… And I’m still so excited about that collection of stories and the idea behind it. In fact, there’s a blog tour coming up where I’ll be talking about it a LOT more, and there is still an opportunity to get a free ecopy to read – just comment here that you’d like one and I’ll send you the code (until March 1st!)
BUT, as things gets closer to final over at Swoon, I’m getting ready to start talking about my New Adult series, Girlfriends of Gotham, which will see its first release this June. The series is a collection of eNovellas about a group of friends exploring work, sex and friendship in New York City in the late nineties. I’m so excited about this series — it might have something to do with the fact that I lived in New York City in my early twenties, worked in the Internet industry, and met an amazing group of women who taught me so much about life, love, and about myself. So it’s possible that Girlfriends of Gotham might be somewhat autobiographical. Maybe. A teensy bit. But even though my own life was fairly exciting during those years, the girlfriends in the GoG series go through things together that my girls and I never really did. The ladies I knew and loved then (who are still my best friends!) are the inspiration for the characters in the series, but the stories aren’t really ABOUT them. That’s the beauty of fiction, and that’s why this series has been so fun to write — I get to base the plot lines and characters on things that are so close to my heart, but I get to make them far more exciting than they really were — or far more horrible!

I can’t wait for everyone to meet the Girlfriends of Gotham… soon they’ll even have their own website! The first installment is titled Men and Martinis

I know I’m gushing. But I just wanted to let you know that I’ve been working. A lot. And if you have read much of the New Adult genre, this may be right up your alley.

Pretty soon, Swoon will be revealing the cover. And I can’t tell you how much I’m in love with it. (I’ll admit to being worried when I knew it was in the works… but my concerns were totally for nothing!) Check back here as we get closer to June…

In the meantime, I’ll try to find other less self-absorbed things to share. 🙂
