Introducing Single in the City bookplates

I love having fans spread far and wide, but one thing that has frustrated me is the inability to meet them at good old fashioned book signings.  Well, I haven't figured out a way to meet you all, but thanks to another clever writer, I've learned about the joys of bookplates!

I've designed one for Single in the City, and am happy to inscribe it for you and/or friends. There's an easy little form on my website: www.michelegorman.co.uk where you can make the request, and I'll post a signed, inscribed bookplate out to you to stick into your copy of Single in the City.

Thanks, everyone, for your lovely support!

Not just a pretty face

They say one shouldn't judge a book by its cover. But let's be honest, we all do, don't we? So when it came time to decide on the cover for Misfortune Cookie I gave it a tremendous amount of thought. I wanted a cover that conveyed the story, about Hannah making the leap to move to Hong Kong, possibly with disastrous consequences. The illustration needed to tie in with the title. I wanted it to highlight the most iconic parts of the city. And I wanted it to reflect the book's style: romantic comedy, aka chick lit.
