Adieu, l’été! Auf Wiedersehen, Sommer! ?????????? ????????, ????! Goodbye, Summer! ??????Selamat tinggal, musim panas!

Labor Day weekend is the traditional end of Summer in the United States.  This has been a particularly hot one in Southern California where I live.  And I’ve spent most of it hunkered down at my desk or in an air-conditioned library working on the sequel to Chanel Bonfire.  But I’ve also–via Skype and Facetime, Twitter and Facebook and this blog–been able to meet and talk to many wonderful people who’ve read Chanel and want to discuss it, ask questions or share their own stories of childhood, mothers and sisters.  I’ve made friends with readers in England, France, Germany, Australia, Russia, Latvia, Japan, China, Indonesia, Brazil and many other places as well.  Thank you all for reading the book and sharing your friendship.  Here’s to a wonderful autumn… or spring if you’re in the southern hemisphere!  

The Chanel Bonfire paperback will be out in November!  Just in time for the holidays.

And remember, if your book group is reading Chanel and would like to schedule a Q & A with me via Skype or FaceTime just email me at!


Buzzfeed: The Unofficial Emma Roberts Reading List Part 1

Emma Roberts on set reading.
This summer has brought many new friends and surprises through book signings, speaking engagements, Book Group Skypes, email, Facebook and Twitter.  One of the great ones has been Emma Roberts.  I’m flattered and delighted that she likes Chanel Bonfire.  And I’m grateful that she has said so in public on Twitter, in July’s Glamour Magazine and now on BuzzFeed.  I am also very impressed that a young person with so much talent and a fanbase that has been growing since before her hit Nick series Zoe 101, has chosen to define herself so thoroughly as a reader.  The first part of her extended list on BuzzFeed can be found via the link below — it is deep, rich, eclectic and fun.  And I’m proud to have a book on it.

Writing From Readers

Reading Chanel in Texas while waiting at Little League!
I just want to give a shout-out to all the readers who take the time to write reviews on Goodreads or Amazon or send pictures of Chanel like the one above or email me…  

          Dear Wendy,
          I finished your book on Sunday and have recommended it to at least 4 people. 
          Including my own little sister (I’ll have to time her finishing it with arriving with 
          Kleenex and martinis).

Or Tweet…

Started #ChanelBonfire by @WendyLawless2 today and I cannot put it

Small World: Chanel Bonfire Travels

Chanel Bonfire in Bavaria

While I’m home and library bound, working on the sequel to Chanel, the book, in the hands and on the Kindles and iPads of readers is out and about, travelling the country and the globe.  I get a big kick out of pics like the one above (Tweeted by reader SM Giffin) or the one below (Tweeted from Little League practice).
