What kind of shoes does a writer wear? Well, Victoria Janssen wears shiny gold Doc Martins. "If you click them together," I asked her, "where do you go?" She clicked her heels and . . . voila! She was in a bookstore! I've gotta get me a pair of those.
I caught up to Vickie in swell bookstore Big Blue Marble, here in Philadelphia, last Saturday. She was having a book launch party for The Duke and the Pirate Queen, the third book in her as-yet-unnamed "smutty romance" trilogy. Free food, friendly people, an author who's happy to answer your questions, and a store full of books which you are permitted to buy. Does life get better than this? I think not.
If you live in Philadelphia and haven't been to Big Blue Marble yet, you're working too hard and spending too little. Click here for their website.
Right: There's the cover. Yow. That's all I have to say. Yow.
