Hip Chicks AboundSeptember 11th, 2008
After my book came out, I received an email from a woman named Janice Taylor. She had just written a book called Our Lady of Weight Loss and it was about to be published by Penguin as well. In her email, Janice was looking for advice on promoting her books, tips on what to do, and just general chick-support as she experienced her author’s loss of viginity.
Little did I know that I was dealing with a powerhouse. Janice needed absolutely no advice on promotion because she has a PR gene; her website (at the time) had 6,000 regular visitors (surely more now), her book was absolutely beautiful, funny and inspiring. Janice, my friends, is a very hip chick.
We finally met a couple of months ago in New York City. After sitting and chatting with her and her lovely husband in their Manhattan apartment for about an hour, I declared “I don’t care what you think, we’re going to be friends for life!”. And we will be. Sometimes you just know.
Janice has a blog on beliefnet and she’s quoted me this week’s entry. Please check it, and her, out.
