Chocolate and hope

Happy Friday! Through the magic of DVR--and just how did we survive without one of those for so long--I re-watched Idol from the other night. Remember the cousins? The one whose rendition of Amazing Grace nearly put the judges to sleep, and then the other one who knocked it out with Let's Get it On? Hilarious. Thanks Jamie for reminding me about them.

So it's supposed to rain in So Cal this weekend? We won't let that get in the way of our chocolate-eating habits. If you're a local, and you didn't make it to my launch party last week--you know who you are, lol--then you have another chance. I'll be signing books at the Gold Coast Chocolate Festival tomorrow from 1-3, Booth #3 in San Nicolas Hall at the Ventura County Fairgrounds. It's a benefit for the Restoring Hope Foundation which sends doctors regularly to the Chernobyl region, so accordingly, a portion of my book's proceeds will be donated to the cause.

Hey, Julie,

Sorry you'll have that Chocolate Festival gig in the rain. Hope people still drop by. Sounds like a very worthy cause. And how perfect your book is for the occasion.

Had to stop by to let you know I finished! I'm so happy and sad at the same time because I want to read more.

Anyway, the plan is for me to post my review on the day I'm hosting your tour. Looking forward to writing it!

Coming to Minnesota for a book signing anytime soon? ;-)

I stopped at Barnes and Noble and picked up a copy of your book today. Hubby's out with the guys tonight, so I'm going to curl up on the couch with a pint of ice cream and your book. Can't wait!

That is so nice of you! Chocolate and hope, two great things in this world....
