Paris!!!

What can I say? Paris is pretty much my favorite city, so when my French publisher, Michel Lafon, extended the invitation to visit, I didn't hesitate to say, "Oui!"

We started at the Museum of Romantic Life, where I was interviewed by channel M6






before moving on to Montmartre where the interview continued as I had lunch with two amazing French readers, Maud & Laetitia, at Le Moulin de la Galette--



Then we all moved on to the Children's Book Fair, where I signed books, met some lovely readers, and continued the interview which you can view HERE! (It's the very last story, so scroll to the end!)

The next day I headed to the Michel Lafon offices where I did a really fun online chat with French readers



Then I moved on to a slew of interviews (including one in French Cosmopolitan!), followed by a photo shoot for a piece in Closers magazine, which I'm told is like the French version of People!





Then my husband and I headed out to the famous Les Deux Magots Cafe for champagne to celebrate NIGHT STAR's second week on the New York Times & USA Today's Bestsellers lists!!



More pics to come . . . stay tuned!!

Congrats! I am finally getting the chance to read NIGHT STAR I already had a little list of books before the release, so I had to finish two first (I snuck this one in early!). I am about 100 pages through and I forgot how much I love them! Absolutely superb writing!

That is the most beautiful room I have ever seen! What a fun time it looks like you're having!

Looks like you're having a great time - I'm so happy for you!

Oh Paris! Sounds like a lot of fun but also very hectic. I'm feeling stressed out (and cold!!) just reading all of this :)

Je suis tres jalouse! Paris is my favorite city in the world; I went there last summer (alongside Nice) and am dying to go back. I'm a total francophile. I hope you had a fun trip!
I just finished Evermore and am left with so many questions (and an anger towards Drina)...eek...I have to wait until Christmas for the other books, but I can't! Dying to know what happens!
I have to say, I love Sabine- mainly because my French teacher is named that and she has been very influential. I want to know more about her character! :)
