“Goddess of Vengeance” #1 in the UK! And Wedding Fever!
Whew… back from London almost a week and celebrating the fact that “Goddess of Vengeance” is #1 in the UK. Whew! All that hard work was worth it. And it is hard work. Endless radio and TV shows getting asked the same questions, always trying to respond as if it’s the first time I’ve heard that particular question. But I have to say, the UK press and the UK TV shows were an absolute delight, everyone was warm and charming and so welcoming. And they were all so happy to welcome Lucky back. She is an amazing character to write, and everyone seems to fall in love with her. When people ask me how old she is now, I simply respond – “How old is James Bond?”
I got some crazy good reviews, the reviewer in The Daily Mail actually called “Goddess of Vengeance” the book of the year!
So that’s taken care of the UK, and now I have the US publication to look forward to. Mark your calendars – September 13th is the day, and hopefully I will be chatting on all my favorite TV shows. Publication day is major exciting, and I love the fact that my readers anxiously await the return of Lucky and Lennie, Bobby and Denver, and all your favorites. Don’t forget you can pre-order the book now!
Thank you Twitter, Facebook and Everything Jackie followers for all of your fabulous comments.
Met the lovely Dannii Minogue in London, and we went out to dinner with the very interesting and amusing Paul O’Grady. It was quite a night! The next evening I spent with my two close friends, Shakira and Michael Caine. It was great to catch up on all the news.
Wedding fever was in full swing while I was in London. Flags and flowers and hordes of tourists looking forward to the big day.
All and all it was a fantastic trip, but it’s lovely to be back in L.A. I missed my TiVo!
More soon, with love,
