Bom dia, amigos! No, I haven’t started studying Portuguese (I wish!), but I am excited to share the newest edition of Kitchen Chinese, Una Americana em Pequim, which was just published in Portugal by ASA Editores. I received copies last week and they are truly gorgeous with beautiful spot-gloss, French flaps and other bells and whistles that make books special. I’m so proud to have them on my bookshelf!
In unrelated book news… Are any of you in a book club, mes amis? If so, I’m delighted to share this list of book club suggestions with you. The titles here are funny and wise, diverse and provocative — and they all have authors who love to Skype and do phone chats with book clubs.
This wonderful list was compiled by the Fiction Writer’s Co-op, a dynamic group of novelists founded by the author, Cathy Marie Buchanan, to support and promote each other’s books. I’m proud to be a member of this group and to help spread the word about the work of my fellow fiction writers!
