American Girl Cover Girl(s) and Maybe, Maybe Not

Okay, so this is where we last left off . . .
Yes! Peepy and Moi were (sort of) on the cover of American Girl magazine. (Again, I must point out that I am NOT drooling. It's the reflection of my camera flash against the glass--really!!!) Oh, and the truth is, you too can be on the magazine cover.

The photo shoot took place at the American Girl Place, Los Angeles where I had a book signing for GOOD LUCK, IVY . . .
(Above: Valerie, the cover model for the book)

The weather was wonderful (70's!!!). Over 1,000,000-ish people showed up. To impress the American Girl staff, I pretended that most of them were not my relatives. This was difficult because my niece insisted on calling me Auntie Lisa, but I just ignored her--not!


I was thrilled that the signing went so well, because early in the week, February 14th signaled something deeply, darkly, distressing for me. No, not Valentine's Day. Well, YES, Valentine's Day. It was the release date of the movie DEFINITELY, MAYBE . . .

The title of my young adult novel (to be released next year) is/was DEFINITELY MAYBE. (Note, the movie has a comma, but my book title does not.) If the subject matter is wildly different, do you think having the same title matters? Yes? No? Maybe?

While we're on the topic of movies, when I was seeing THERE WILL BE BLOOD for the sorta-second-time (the first time the theater lost power and we had to leave 1/2 hour into the film), I ran into my old friend/employee Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy . . .
Always nice to see you, Colin!

Hey, if you're in the New York area, I'll be at the American Girl Place, New York this Saturday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. If you want to meet Peepy, this would be the time and place!

And in tribute to New York, my pal Mel sent me this lovely procrastination link. It's "The Best Prank Ever." OOoooooh, I wish I could have been part of it!!!
