bon voyage

Here I am, lurking with my computer which doubles as a camera with (what my dad would have called) a saucer-eyed expression. Okay, cut me some slack, I have sent the book flying through the Interwebs. Thank you, my friends. When I hear news, you’ll hear news…

    • Thank you, Mr. Morgnanesi — I haven’t – although I was talking to the artist who is doing the book design last week and he dubbed it – Noir but not quite – and then he said, “You know. Sunny Noir” – I’m going with that, a new genre inspired by Southern California. It’s a sardonic, romantic, slightly mysterious look at Hollywood. I’ll keep you posted!

    Fabulous News!
    Oh, but “cut you some slack”, for what? Mr Kaplan thinks you look heart-stoppingly gorgeous in that picture, Ms Lester… Those *eyes*… Maybe that should be your “Author” photograph?!
    🙂 (whistles, walks away)

      Mr. Kaplan, you are too kind. And I return a kiss for your whistle 🙂

    Beaming you good vibes. I like the description – consider that Sonny Noir would be a good name for a blues musician on Prairie Home Companion. Ahem, I digress. Sorry. I’ll hoist a root beer in your honor.

      Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream in that and I’ll join you.

      Ah that, well, as I said to Miss Lisa, my house is very clean! Thank you for the blessing, I can feel your gentle wind coming my way.

  7. May 20, 2013

    I know it reached its destination with a big splash!
    Here’s to a happy and thrilling read for those in possession of your work, your baby. 😉
    Cheers, my Vickie!!

      The manuscript was received and as soon as I got confirmation I went into hyper-drive – what can I say, the energy had to go somewhere and now my house is immaculate. xoxox, V

    PS – Could you please stop looking so cute? You’re making me feel bad. 😉

    • May 20, 2013

      Please note where I’m holding the lens – way up north to tidy up that jawline 😉 It’s all in the angles and a nice fill light…

  9. May 20, 2013

    I am on pins and needles!!! Can I help cast it when it becomes a film?

  10. May 20, 2013

    PS …you look so pretty!!

  11. May 20, 2013


    your hair looks very sleek.

    as it should when one has Sent Off A Manuscript!

    • May 20, 2013

      Baby, my hair has been ironed into glossiness. And, if I had done it myself it would have turned out to be a scorched and frazzled two inches long 😉

      • May 21, 2013


        some things are best left to professionals.

        we have scorched before.

    Pleased to hear you finally pushed the button, good luck with your ‘Sunny Noir’, I am very much looking forward to seeing it in all its glory. 😀

    • May 22, 2013

      Me too — I’m in a state of anticipation because very soon I’ll see the roughs of the jacket design…

    • May 23, 2013

      Thank you, and I owe you a visit in Australia via WP, lovely that I can do it with the click of a button!

      • May 23, 2013

        If only it was so easy to visit all of these far flung places for real! 🙂

  13. May 22, 2013

    Ms. V, it has been too long! And look at what I’ve missed while I was away! Congrats on the book! Can’t wait to read it! Now, if I could just finish mine 🙂

    • May 23, 2013

      Ms. M, I can’t wait for you to finish it either – because I want to read it! 🙂
