More adventures in publishing: "Water Music" at Neiman Marcus

What a fun evening at Neiman Marcus, The Westchester in White Plains last Wednesday.

Hannie Sio-Stellakis, the store’s public relations manager, had kindly invited me to do a book signing for my new novel, “Water Music”, as part of Neiman’s InCircle event.  As models Ksusha, Kash, Heidi, Paul and Tom strolled the terraced floors in striking daywear and eveningwear, shoppers sampled steak, risotto, shrimp wrapped in snow peas, Champagne, cappuccino, iced cookies and chocolate cheesecake bits – all set to a killer DJ.  (Heidi and I even did a mini-duet on Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball.”)

It was a great opportunity to make new acquaintances and relish old ones like David Hochberg, editorial adviser of WAG magazine, which I edit. 

David hung with me all night, helping me lug all my props and books back to the car at the end of the evening.

He reminded me that everything is more enjoyable when you share it with others.

Look for more book-signings at “Sassy Ladies Shopping Night Out” in Tarrytown April 11 and at The Lionheart Gallery in Pound Ridge May 18.
