For the past three years, I have been contributing weekly cartoons for a website called wowowow.com. It is the brainchild of publishing wonderwoman Joni Evans.
Every time I publish a book, Joni and her team have kindly done a slide show for me. Interestingly, When Do They Serve The Wine? was inspired by Joni. Right after my last book Sex and Sensibility, Joni took me to lunch near the wowowow offices. I asked her what she would suggest my next book be. I figured she is a master at knowing publishing trends, so why not get her input? What she said was “women of a certain age” (I am paraphrasing). She continued to explain that older women are a huge demographic with spending power, and I would do well to create a book for them. So I decided to write about the generations of a woman’s life, including youth and old age. What I am discovering is that women of all ages–and men–love this book. This makes me very happy, as I think the different ages of women need to speak to one another more. And is there a better way to connect than through humor? I think not. Thank you, Joni!
Here is the slide show they created for my new book.
