Conversations With The Fat Girl
So I got a postcard in the mail yesterday from my friend Liza Palmer, whose novel, Conversations With The Fat Girl, will be coming out in September. It's a fun read, with a heroine with a lot of spunk, energy, and humor. It's coming out on Warner Books. And it's Liza's first... we've bonded majorly over the first-book process.
I've often joked with Liza that she and I should do a few book signings together. Our audiences would be a perfect match. Gay boys. Big girls. The high school BFFs (best friends forever), back-up prom date, boy-talk confidante... the fag hag, as we so immaturely called this pair back in the day. Not sure when or if the joint gig will happen... not sure if Liza finds it fun(ny)... :-)
But Liza and I will be on different panels during the West Hollywood Book Fair in early October. Hopefully you can check us both out on that day... if you're in the area. But, in the meantime, I'm introducing Liza to you via her blog... Jane Goes On A Diet. fs
