Jessica Kleiman and Meryl Weinsaft Cooper had their official book launch party last night in NY City and I was sorry to miss it. They had a HUGE turnout - friends, professional contacts, and the press -- and everybody had a great time. They also sold a lot of autographed copies of Be Your Own Best Publicist.

Here are the two authors, looking beautiful and very proud of their success, which they should be - considering that they both have full-time careers as PR executives. I don't know how they did it!

 The handsome and talented Tommy (better known as Emma's clone) looks justifiably proud, too.

Speakng of books, Jessica lent me a book she said was hilarious - and she was right.  I was laughing out loud from almost the first page.  Notes from the Underwire, by Quinn Cummings is just a hoot - and I highly recommend it if you need a laugh. I finished the book today.  Thanks, Jess.

Thankyouthankyouthankyou for all your comments on last night's post.  I hope you'll forgive me if I don't get to thank all ofyou personally but trust me, coming home after a very long and quiet day (except for my giggling at the book) to find your lovely notes brought sunshine into the house.  I wouldn't be here without you.

Sunshine is a mirage; it is freezing rain outside and there is an ice storm warning on the NJ map. I took well-traveled roads home tonight at 5:30 and it was ok -- but parkng lots and driveways were ice-covered.  Everybody I know is planning to stay in tomorrow, including yrs truly.

I don't think I have to get up early but I probably will, anyway.  It is already tomorrow in this part of the world, so goodnight.

Congratulations to the authors and to mother of one of the authors! You should be proud - and I know you are!! I am happy that you will be home all day tomorrow. I won't worry.

Thanks for the support, Mom, and sorry you couldn't be there...although it was hot and crowded and you would have been miserable! We had fun though and sold 43 books - yay! xoxo
