Book Launches Bring Back the Blog
The spring weather has made everything in New York begin to blossom, and what better reason to blog again than the launch of three books by three of my favorite authors and most adored friends – all appearing on the same day? Doing this in alphabetical order, I woke up to a fabulous interview of Harlan Coben on CBS This Morning – talking about his fantastic new thriller STAY CLOSE. Clipped the great NY TIMES full-page ad for Richard North Patterson’s dazzling new novel – FALL FROM GRACE – was lucky to have an early read and offer a quote for Ric, who is my favorite writing partner on Martha’s Vineyard, where FFG is set (captured brilliantly). Then hosted a lunch for my friend (of 30 + years), Kate White – the smart, sexy, generous, funny and how-does-she-do-it-all editor in chief of COSMO, whose 8th mystery, SO PRETTY IT HURTS, completes the trifecta. If you want to check out the great ladies at Kate’s lunch, check out my press room in a day or two. The cheerful fete at Michael’s is the centerpiece of Diane Clehane’s column on media bistro and David Patrick Columbia’s daily delight on New York Social Diary. One thing I promise you is three great reads.
