Lush, Links, Love

One of our friendly bottles of wine, posing in the Jardins Luxembourg.

Phew. I'm back from Paris, where there was plenty of wine, bread, wine, cheese, wine... my liver is in recovery! Plenty o' fun was had by all, except perhaps by the men we forced to open our bottle of wine in the grocery store. Oh, the humiliation.

A few quick things! If you'd like to win an ebook copy of Willow, you can enter at Chick Lit Club or Chick Lit Reviews.

This week, I've also been lucky enough to be a guest over at Christa's wonderful blog. Drop by to say hi and for the chance to win a copy of The Hating Game! And over at The Naked Hero, I'm stripping off a Frenchman. Go on, take a peek. You know you want to! :)

A massive thanks to everyone taking the time to read, review, sign up for my launch... I really appreciate it! And as you know, well, next week is going to be an exciting one for me. So I'm going to gather my energy and say have a fantastic weekend.

See you Monday!

  5. With all the wine, bread and cheese, it's a wonder more French people aren't fat. Maybe it's because they don't eat Whoppers and Big Macs.

  9. Wow, wine in the grocery store! I think Pennsylvania is the only place in the whole world where alcohol is not permitted to be sold in grocery stores. We have separate beer distributers and Wine & Spirits stores.

    Glad you're having such a wonderful time with your BFF!

  10. That looks like a very friendly bottle of wine. Glad you had a great time! :-)

    (p.s. Milk thistle is said to be good for the liver. It even helps it to regenerate!)

  12. Stripping a french man...Hmmm...Sounds better than the wine and cheese :) Don't you just love the sound coming out of their mouths....LOL!

  15. Takes a while to detox from a French trip. I pigged out on fois gras this time, oh joy! Even managed to 'smuggle' some back into Oz, well, the nice Customs man decided I could keep it. They don't like us bringing dead animals in from o'seas, lol.

    Have just put up the WWW review on Reading at Dawn -http://readingatdawn.blogspot.com

    You have a great weekend too!

  22. Oh, you lucky thing to have just been in Paris. That's certainly a perk of living in London--Paris is practically your neighbor. Now I'm dreaming of fresh baguette with brie and maybe some chocolat.

  23. Best wishes for a great launch to your book. Only a weekend in Paris? Seems too short. But then, I've never been at all. A weekend would be better than nothing...right?

  34. When I first arrived in Paris I saw two dudes drinking from a bottle of wine on a park bench at 2 in the afternoon, and I was like 'When in Rome...' - I was told months later that they were probably bums. C'est la vie :P

  37. Hey, Talli,

    I have been away FAR to long. I didn't know you were in Paris... How COOL!

    Montreal and Quebec City were the closest I could get to Paris this year.

    Looking forward to your launch next week. SO excited for you! Will post my review soon.
