Here’s the publication schedule for the next year or so….

April 18, 2017: That Summer (paperback reissue).

July 4, 2017: A Paris All Your Own: Bestselling Women Writers on the City of Light, a series of personal essays about Paris by assorted authors (trade paperback).

(I am very happy to announce that the three of us finished a draft of the Lusitania novel last week! We will shortly be retreating to our top secret bat cave to polish up the Lusitania book and plot the next Three W adventure. And possibly finally come up with a title for the Lusitania book other than Lusitania book.)

I can’t wait to share all of these with you!

I’m working on my 2019 book (aka Stand Alone #5) right now. I’ll have more to tell you about that once The English Wife is safely out in the world….



Teaser Tuesday: A Paris All Your Own!

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

If you can’t go to Paris, Paris will be coming to you this summer, in the anthology A Paris All Your Own: Bestselling Women Writers on the City of Light.

I’m so thrilled to get to revisit one of my favorite cities in such wonderful company!

Here is the tres snazzy cover:

Et voila! The official blurb:

A collection of all-new Paris-themed essays written by some of the biggest names in women’s fiction, including Paula McLain, Therese Anne Fowler, Maggie Shipstead, and Lauren Willig, edited by Eleanor Brown, the New York Times bestselling author of The Weird Sisters and The Light of Paris.

“My time in Paris,” says New York Times–bestselling author Paula McLain (The Paris Wife), “was like no one else’s ever.” For each of the sixteen bestselling authors in this warm, inspiring, and charming collection of personal essays on the City of Light, nothing could be more true.

While all of the women writers featured here have written books connected to Paris, their personal stories of the city are wildly different. Meg Waite Clayton (The Race for Paris) and M. J. Rose (The Book of Lost Fragrances) share the romantic secrets that have made Paris the destination for lovers for hundreds of years. Susan Vreeland (The Girl in Hyacinth Blue) and J. Courtney Sullivan (The Engagements) peek behind the stereotype of snobbish Parisians to show us the genuine kindness of real people.

From book club favorites Paula McLain, Therese Anne Fowler (Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald), and anthology editor Eleanor Brown (The Light of Paris) to mystery writer Cara Black (Murder in the Marais), historical author Lauren Willig (The Secret History of the Pink Carnation), and memoirist Julie Powell (Julie and Julia), these Parisian memoirs range from laugh-out-loud funny to wistfully romantic to thoughtfully somber and reflective.

Perfect for armchair travelers and veterans of Parisian pilgrimages alike, readers will delight in these brand-new tales from their most beloved authors.

A Paris All Your Own: Bestselling Women Writers on the City of Light will appear in bookstores near you on July 4, 2017. (Not quite Bastille Day… but close!)
