This was quite a bit of fun, to have the chance to speak with Pauline and Arthur Frommer about 100 Places in France on ABC Radio – the same day as my friend and colleague Lavinia Spalding. My interview, April 9 hour 1, here.

I don’t get to San Francisco enough, but when I go, I always hope to stop by Book Passage in Corte Madera – and even better, to do an event there. My friend, the lovely writer Lisa Alpine, hosts a series and in June 2015, I did a reading with my great friends and colleagues Lavinia Spalding and Candace Rose Rardon. Here is a YouTube video of the event – Thanks Lisa and Book Passage for another fulfilling night of books and stories.

These days, the budget is limited for touring or publicity. So I’m a one-person band in the direct promotion of my book that is gradually finding its audience. So it was my good luck and great pleasure to discover France Booktours, run by a dynamo named Emma. Each day, for ten days during my virtual book tour, 100 Places in France Every Woman Should Go was reviewed on individual blogs and posted on the main site as well. Over 600 people signed up for the giveaway, which not only shows Emma’s reach, but also proves the enduring fascination of France for women. Thank you! You can read all my reviews here.
