I’ve mentioned here before that I have not been happy with my first two book covers. I went out of my way to purchase beautiful graphics, but when it came to the actual design of the covers, I didn’t have the knowledge or the proper software to create professional covers—something striking—someth...

I've visited Paris often, but I've never been so fortunate as to live there, so while researching my forthcoming novel (Paris by the Book), I read the memoirs of as many people as I could. Few left more of an indelible mark than Kate Betts's MY PARIS DREAM My Paris Dream An Education in Style, Slang, and Seduction in the Great City on the Seine by Kate Betts.

Well, as of this writing, the world did not end yesterday at 10:21 AM, which is when the totality of the eclipse happened in my neck of the woods. For the record, it was spectacular.
