Two Lipsticks and a Lover came out in the US a week ago and Penguin is already reprinting which is great news. It has also made it to the top 10 ‘health & wellness’ books sold there. Sounds like rather a namby-pamby category but any top 10 feels good to me. Over there it is called All you need to know to be impossibly French, I think the lover thing was a bit too risque for the puritanical Americans. Unlike the French of course, which is the subject of my column in the Sunday Times today. .
The only downside with being published in the States of course is that I now have to check my amazon rating on amazon.com. And with the speed of the internet connection here that could take me most of the morning. Especially as they have this brilliant statistic which tells you how many people who clicked on your page then went on to buy your book. On my page it’s 42%, but another 42% went on to buy the latest tome by Mirelle Guiliano (don’t even think about it, mine is much more amusing).
Then of course I have to check my rating on amazon.co.uk, so there goes most of the afternoon. Oh well, the next book will just have to be late…..
