I'm back!

And if you happen to be reading this in Atlanta, you can get a signed copy of GOOD IN BED at any number of bookstores -- including the W.H. Smith stores in the airport -- that I visited on Tuesday.

It's been a busy few days, topped off by a wonderful reading at R.J. Julia in Madison, CT, last night. And here's the best news of all -- the Publishers Weekly review of IN HER SHOES!

Jennifer Weiner, whose debut novel, Good in Bed, was an instant bestseller, is back with another exuberantly confident offering, In Her Shoes (S&S/Atria). Twenty-eight year-old Maggie Feller relies on her looks and size zero body to flirt her way through life while working dozens of dead-end jobs and dreaming of stardom. At the other end of the spectrum is her older, larger sister, Rose, who relies on her intelligence and is an accomplished attorney at a large Philadelphia firm....

With the help of their maternal grandmother, the two sisters begin to repair their relationship. In the end, these three remarkable women learn that they are stronger than they thought they were, that family ties are worth preserving, and that there are perks to sharing the same shoe size. Weiner, a marvelously natural storyteller, blends humor and heartbreak to create an irresistible novel.

I'm totally thrilled, and deeply relieved. I know somebody's going to say "sophomore slump" at some point, but I'm just glad it hasn't happened yet.
