I have absolutely no news whatsoever.

It's been so long. I've missed you all. Me? What have I been doing? Well, I've been writing, which is the awful byproduct of this whole Famous Author thing...one must hold up one's end of the bargain.

I also have no photos to share except this one of my friend, Elliot. Elliot came to my reading at Bliss Spa and I really hope you can appreciate the full effect. Can you feel the Elliot-ness? Elliot is a very sparkly guy.

Also...big news: I was in Paris again and went on a perfume tour of all the great perfume houses in the city and I HAVE A NEW FAVORITE PERFUME! Editions de Parfums Frederick Malle is simply swimming in wonderfulness. I bought Le Parfum de Therese which is just so...I dunno...French. I also visited with my delightful friend Linlee at Colette. Linlee is a PR Goddess. She's moving to LA (for a boy, of course!) and will hopefully land a gig in the indy-movie-PR world. She was thinking that it might be fun to work with Drew Barrymore, so Drew...drop me a line and I'll connect you.

Meanwhile, if you are very gay and in need of a place to go, stop by Bryan Boy. He's my new Gay Best Turd World Boyfriend (GBTWB). Baboosh! (tm).

I hope to see you all so soon. New book almost complete. Paperback out this summer. Italian out this summer. French out as soon as they can figure out how to translate chutzpah.

if so---hello again.

If not---I hope you like it. Drop me a line. You don't need to be a fashionista to like the book. And yes--black nail polish is the best! Black is the new buff.

Dear Jennifer,

So glad to read your blog and to hear that you have a new book coming out! I look forward to reading it!

Do you have a MySpace account? Any words of wisdom for someone trying to get published? I did take your advice and wrote a different sort of query letter a few times out with no luck...learning towards self-publising more and more BUT never giving up! I have lots of ideas for PR and I'm very confident about that process.

Again, can't wait for the NEW book!

Michelle--
I am on my space:
http://www.myspace.com/famousauthor
Also--feel free to send me your new query if you want some feedback.
I would only self-publish under certain circumstances and as a last resort---but that's just my opinion.
Good luck and drop me a line (or just respond to this comment.)

Jennifer,
Thanks for responding, I may take you up on the query offer, right now I'm away from home for my granny's funeral so I'll get back to you when things have settled down.
Take Care,
Michelle
P.S. How do you feel about e-books?

Michelle - so sorry to hear about your granny. Drop me a line when you're up to it.

E-books? I don't know. I guess I'm old fashioned about books. I like mine three-dimensional.

Like record albums - they're sort of a catalog of my life. iPods took that away with music stuff, I think. I'd rather see a full bookshelf than a full inbox.
