Let's hear it for bling!
Today, I went to Chelsea to meet a friend of mine from California, an enormously talented writer who was meeting with her agent and with an editor interested in her novel (Trust me, the novel is brilliant.)
Jennifer Gooch Hummer is also an uber talented jewelry designer and I am spending most of today staring at the new jewelry she gave me. The ring is crystal and it catches the light and the wrap-around bracelet actually has a tiny piece that proclaims, "A story saves a soul." I'm passionately in love with both these pieces.
Come on, you know you want some of these incredible pieces! Take a look at her website, please. Everything is fantastic!
Stay tuned, THIS OTHER LIFE has sold to Algonquin, my beloved publisher and I am busy writing it now. My 11th novel CRUEL BEAUTIFUL WORLD is an Indie Next Pick. IS THIS TOMORROW was an May Indie Pick. I'm also the New York Times bestselling author of PICTURES OF YOU, a San Francisco Chronicle Lit Pick, a Costco "Pennie's Pick." a NAIBA bestseller and on the Best Books of 2011 List from San Francisco Chronicle, Providence Journal, Kirkus Reviews and Bookmarks Magazine. I'm the recipient of a New York Foundation of the Arts Grant in Fiction. I was a 2013 finalist in the Sundance Screenwriting Lab and a finalist in the Nickelodeon Screenwriting Fellowship, four of my novels were optioned for screen, and I talked my way into writing the script for two of them. My essay, HIgh Infidelity, has been optioned for film. I'm a book critic for The San Francisco Chronicle and People Magazine. I teach novel writing for UCLA Extension Writers' Program, and Stanford online, do private fiction editing, and I am a professional namer! I live with my husband, writer/editor Jeff Tamarkin and we beam with pride about our son, an actor/filmmaker in college. Visit me at http://www.carolineleavitt.com.
