Every weekend in The Hague, there are wonderful activities happening, all competing for your attention and time. Beach or a lazy afternoon at home? Festival or film? Concert or book signing?

I’m here to add your choices. Today is the day that I am celebrating the launch of my second novel, The Things We Said in Venice. Sure, it’s been available online for the last 9 weeks, but this is the first time I am making a party of it somewhere else besides online, so I can celebrate with people in present time, where we can chat with each other, while looking each other in the eye.

What’s The Things We Said in Venice about? Travel, second chances, architecture, self-discovery, overcoming fear, laughter, relationships, love. For more info, see recent press about the book below the schedule.

Birth Announcement: Baby Number Two!

Leave a comment

I know a lot of you are thinking “Gosh, I didn’t even know you were pregnant!” But I have been for a couple of years now, in a figurative “authorly” way. I had written my second novel with a planned due date of May 2nd, 2017. But just this week, she decided May 2nd was just too far away.

When I approved the final version to order print books for a May book signing, I accidentally released her nine weeks early!

I’m sure there are marketing gurus out there who would say; “never admit to such a mistake!” But I view it differently. Sometimes, your baby decides to come into the world before the expected delivery date, and when that happens, you roll with it. Just to clarify, she is fully baked. She has been proofed and edited and formatted and properly clothed. She’s just . . . a premie.

The first order of business, now that I’ve gotten over the shock, is to send you all an official birth announcement:

Want to celebrate this wondrous experience with me? Then by all means, please schedule a visit by clicking on this link to order your copy now (Kindle or Print version). If you live outside the U.S. and you prefer a more tactile reading experience, it is best to order it from your Amazon store in your country or region, or order it directly from your local bookstore to support bricks and mortar business. You can also click on the links to the right of this post.

One last announcement. My son (the human type) hopes you will all order a copy. What a sweet, supporting child, you think! (Disclaimer: I promised him that after my 100th sale I’d get him a new Lego set. He’s suddenly very interested in how sales are going.

Thanks for your time!
