Paris, My Sweet goes to Brazil

It’s been over eight months since Paris, My Sweet came out and nearly every week I get some sort of surprise. An amazing email from a reader (thank you, for taking the time). A kind note on my Facebook page (ditto). Discovering that the book is in stores halfway around the world, as I did when my friend Dominique emailed this photo from Cape Town (merci, Dom!).
But in other worldly news, Paris, My Sweet was translated into Portuguese this summer and is now available in Brazil!
Isn't the cover gorgeous? "Minha Doce Paris"—I love it.

I was also thrilled to hear that Barnes & Noble will be featuring a “Love Stories” themed table from January 1 – February 14, 2013 and Paris, My Sweet will be featured. Hip hip!

And for anyone who happens to be in Kansas City this Saturday, hankering for a brown butter and molasses bonbon, I’m doing a reading at the most amazing chocolatier, Christopher Elbow, at 2 pm. Please come and eat some chocolates with me!


  1. The chocolates and I will be there, in spirit :)

  2. Congratulations on your book spreading around the world. What a feeling that must be.

  3. I think the book "Paris,My Sweet" should be translated in all the languages, because everyone in this world has some romantism in himself. Congratulations for your book and blog, and never stop dreaming and writing ,because people need some fantasy in this reality. I love Paris too ,is on the top of the list of my romantic places, but I like to search and discover, this world has much to fascinate and intrigue the eye.

  4. Such wonderful news my dear! I can't wait until your book is translated into Polish, will share it with all my family! And when is the French version coming out?

    May the book (and you) continue to travel!
