Come see me at BookHampton Sag Harbor 8/21 at 5 PM!

Hi, lovely summer friends! My favorite bookstore in the world, Bookhampton, is hosting me on Sunday, August 21st at 5 PM in the Sag Harbor store. Come one, come all as I discuss how being in the Hamptons pretty much saved my sanity in the onset of The Letter and the years that followed. I’ve come full circle and am very excited.

Later that evening, RAINN is hosting a wonderful “Bowl for RAINN” event from 6 to 11 pm at East Hampton Bowl with Mick Foley, our wonderful supporter. So tie on your bowling shoes after the book party and head on over for drinks, dancing and support of RAINN. Couldn’t be a better Sunday out East, now could it?

Welcome to the “new” blog on WordPress! Enjoy your time here!

Hi, all!

As many of you know, I’ve been juggling book tour and talks and clubs with parenting, drafting my second book treatment and maintaining some sense of self-care throughout the madness. The new blog will talk about current events in crime and justice (no dearth of cases here, whew!) as well as some questions you may have about the book, having read it. Or not! In which case, here is my Amazon author page for upcoming events.

So many nice folks to thank for the success of this book – from my agent to my publisher, my editor, my publicist, and all the lovely people in the media who sought to tackle a “dirty” subject. We’ll be highlighting those writers, shows, bloggers, radio folks and champions, as well as including them as guest bloggers. I am so grateful to everyone who worked on this project and continue to do so!

If you are with the media, head to the main page and find me that way, but feel free to leave a (mostly appropriate and nice, please) comment here in the spirit of discussion. I clearly reject all troll-ish comments as they are not part of the discussion and it’s not worth it to expose other survivors or their families to boorish behavior as I used to.

I’ll even be coming into the year 2011 and using multimedia this time around, so yet, videos, photos and hyperlinks and perhaps my YouTube channel which I’ve been putting off. Amen!

So, come often, get your books out and we WILL schedule an online Twitter or blog reading one day soon with my publicist. In the meantime, I’ll be posting this evening about your thoughts on – er – THAT verdict. You know what I mean. Hmmmm….

Wanted – Guest Bloggers!


Is there a case that you find interesting, heartbreaking, maddening? Send me a message and I’d like you to blog on it. Every day, there are a bajillion (yeah, that’s my number) cases that blow the mind and I’d love to get some input, especially if they are in your local jurisdiction.

Come one, come all!
