Jackie Collins Is Back With A “Vengeance”! (The MAC Wire)

We were lucky enough to attend Jackie Collins’ recent bloggers/press event during New York Fashion Week. She hosted 23 journos and bloggers in the Library of the Hudson Hotel on West 58th Street. She not only “meeted and greeted” with the party guests but she also did a reading from her newest book (which just happens to be her 28th), Goddess Of Vengeance, just published by St. Martin’s Press. A special Lucky cocktail was served (that’s one of Collins’ most famous heroines and the heroine of Goddess Of Vengeance, in case you haven’t followed her recently), and it was quite potent–it consisted of Skyy Vodka, Cointreau, Cranberry Juice, Lychee Juice and Champagne and was served in a martini glass)!
Jackie was a pleasure to speak with–she took in a couple of Fashion Week Shows including Venexiana and hung out with her British pal Barry Frost (who also lives in LA and was one of the producers of What’s Love Got To Do With It). Barry asked questions of Jackie in the question-and-answer session after her reading just like the rest of us. She got questions ranging from what book she would most like to see made into a feature film to whether she would ever do a reality series (the answers being Poor Little Bitch Girl and an adamant “no,” respectively). Jackie signed books for all the guests and we all walked home with a bag of Jackie Collin’s older titles in paperback and all sorts of fun merchandise (like Lucky logo coffee mugs and note pads).
