This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

How My Little Tip Book Became a Real Book

My Little Tip Book

Here’s the lowdown in answer to the question of how my little tip book on meeting Euro men―made for girlfriends―became a real book: I was working with a Hollywood producer on one of my screenplays. His company did book/movie adaptations and was connected with the film He’s Just Not That Into You. Heasked if I had ever written a book. I said that I just wrote this one little book for fun. He loved the concept and told me my book should be for real. He said to fill it with true stories and give it a chick lit feel. I wrote the first 260-page draft in only three weeks. Now you know why I went on the Ben & Jerry’s Diet:) Those two guys are experts at getting a girl through a crash project!

This picture was taken after my meeting with the producer. I got changed into workout clothes, but never actually worked out. Instead, I got a cupcake at Crumbs. They say the first step in every good exercise program is putting on the workout clothes…right?
