Leslie Langtry Needs A New Camera

My camera sucks. Last night this awesome and amazing book club invited me out for pizza and beer, had a cake made with my first cover on it, gave me flowers, and actually read and LIKED my books! And this is the best picture it took.

I need a new camera, Mr. Assassin. I also need stronger biceps - the cake was heavy. I remember them telling me, "Don't drop the cake," and "Don't get frosting on your boobs."

Anyway, about the book club - they know my sister-in-law, Beth, and decided to read my books. They asked me to dinner at Bad Boyz Pizza (which was EXTREMELY appropriate!) and bought me beer! They made me a cake! CAKE IS MY FAVORITE!

I don't know about them but I had a great time! These women were smart, gorgeous and of course, funny. (HELLO! They liked my books!) And somewhere between reading Water for Elephants and The Help, they read Leslie Langtry.

It was a terrific ego boost (and sugar rush) and I thank these women from the bottom of my heart.

NEVER underestimate the power of cake, a cold beer, and adoring fans WHO FIND YOU INTERESTING after a long, hot day.

So do a local author a huge favor and read her books and invite her to dinner. She'll never forget it.

I'd love too, Hellie! I wonder if I could ditch the kids...

Oh how fun. And that's totally my kind of book club - pizza and beer!

Leslie Langtry said...

I know, right? Don't forget the adoration! I'm still always suprised when people gush about my books!

What a great night! No surprise they loved your books. And if you skipped MO and came over here to the beach, you could send the kids to the ocean with Mr. Assassin and we could grab that beer an cake.

Just sayin'...

Hey it's not that bad of a picture really. The beer bottle took the best picture!! LOL! You were awesome-thanks again for your humor. It was also nice for us after a long day!

Thanks Michele! And Teri, I might just have to make a grand tour of it. The Beer and Cake Tour!

We all had a great time! I can't wait to read the other two books. I love your sense of humor! We will invite you back for pizza and cake when you finish the book about Paris Bombay. OK?
