This is the one who slapped a cop…

When I was a kid the Gabors roamed Palm Springs. Zsa Zsa, pictured here, Eva, of television fame, Magda, who married well and often. Their mama, Jolie was a jewelry designer (I think) and I know she had store on Palm Canyon in Palm Springs.

zsa-zsa-gabor-romanticWell babies, I am not lying around in Shantung Silk Pajamas this morning, or pearls. But I am wondering if you’d like me to read you a bit more of the novel? Let me know. In the meantime it’s dim sum Sunday and I am going to hear some salacious gossip that I can’t repeat here, but may just end up in my next book.

Oh, and in case you missed it (shameless self promotion alert) this is the reading from yesterday:

    Please Vickie, do consider an audio version of your book too. Like Nora Ephron splendidly did.
    You’ll have fun doing it and pass the fun to the listeners.
    The episode is so sensual and intriguing. And you sound perfectly right. Very promising.
    All babies braced themselves.

      You know, I hadn’t thought of that, but it sounds like fun!
      As to the babies, I was concerned I was hamming it up like I do/or did when I read bedtime stories to certain people of very small stature and short attention spans, although the content is markedly different 😉 .

    and perhaps the Mister could do the male dialogue bits when required?

    sort of an Elizabeth-and-Richard-at-Home-in-Beverly-Hills learning soundcloud?

    (or would you prefer Doris hanging out at Rock’s house in their PJs?)

      Ah ha! That sounds so intriguing. The Mister is a natural.

        and of course who-we-are-in-RL has a very nice voice if you need her to read a bit after the digital check-up 2.0

    Jolie Gabor also had a store in Manhattan on the Upper East Side!

      Wow! I wonder if Google will reveal any of her designs…

    Oh yes. An audio version… or maybe an abridged serialisation with voices and all to point to ‘the main event’…

      Well, someone just came up with a brilliant promotional idea! I love it!
      Thank you!

        I’m not sure if you can get them over with you but try listening to ‘Book of The Week’ on good old BBC Radio 4. 75 minutes of audio to tempt the public into reading a work of serious fact or fiction serialised into five parts, you can imagine how delighted a writer is when their work is picked!
        Yours ever

        I will try to tune in right now!

    The consensus seems to be that we all want to hear more! 🙂

      I love this consensus! Thank you!
