Book Description: Constance Sartone Jacobson never recovered the sudden death of her father when she was only five. Devastated by her husband’s death and the scandal that ensues, Constance’s mother, Madeline, does little to comfort her scared and lonely daughter. With nowhere to turn, Constance protects herself by closing off her emotions.

Through vivid dreams and daytime visions Constance’s father calls to her from a horse-drawn stagecoach. These visions help Constance cope with her humdrum life and failing marriage. But things are about to change. On a business trip with her husband, she purchases an antique Greek vase. Upon opening it, a stream of purple light hisses from the vase and a tribe of wasp-like creatures pour out. One of the creatures shape-shifts into a ravishing fairy and offers Constance a way out. Desperate to feel anything, Constance listens to the fairy’s advice. .… Read more on Amazon.

Author Interview #135: Paris Adieu by Rozsa Gaston – FREE on 11/29/2012

November 28, 2012

Paris AdieuOur interview today is with Rozsa Gaston author of Paris Adieu (4.7 stars, 23 reviews, FREE on 11/29/2012). Before we get to the interview a brief book description: The first time Ava Fodor visits Paris as a nineteen-year old au pair, she has no idea who she is. Paris introduces Ava to the type of woman she’d like to become. Her French boyfriend introduces her to the concept of being comfortable in her own skin. She’s intrigued. If only she knew how…  When she gets into Yale, she returns home, but four years later she’s back for an encounter with a Frenchman that awakens her to womanhood. If only she could stay…

Five years later, Ava returns to Paris as a singer/pianist. She meets Arnaud, a foreign correspondent, who captures her heart, but tortures her with long absences. While he’s away, she throws herself into songwriting where she achieves an authenticity she doesn’t feel onstage. With the help of Arnaud’s childhood friend Pierre, who appreciates Ava’s original songs in a way Arnaud doesn’t, Ava takes the reins of her own future. Armed with the lessons Paris has taught her, she bids adieu to Arnaud, Pierre and her very first love—the City of Light. But will the one man who truly understands her follow?

Interview with Rozsa Gaston.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself? I always wanted to be someone else when I was a child. I was raised by my grandparents as an only child, and I always wanted to have brothers and sisters and a father and mother around. I think a lot of readers may relate to those unfulfilled longings.

Where did you grow up? West Hartford, Connecticut.

What is your fondest childhood memory? Sitting out on the back patio in the summertime with my grandmother, looking at the sun go down over Avon Mountain while sipping black cows. I wrote a short story about it — “Black Cows at Sunset.” Read more »

How is Digital Changing Cookbooks?

November 27, 2012

From Publishers Weekly. 

The digital changes facing cookbook publishers were at the forefront of the latest in the PW Discussion Series, “The Digital Kitchen: Adapting Cookbooks in the App Age,” held November 16 and hosted by Mark Rotella, editor of PW’s Cooking the Books newsletter. “Cookbooks used to be a one-way relationship,” said panelist Amanda Hesser, cofounder of, a Web site that uses a community-based model for its recipes, which it has turned into two cookbooks (the second is due in December 2012) and two apps (priced at $3.99 each, which they settled on after much experimentation). When asked how deals with crowdsourced content, relinquishing a measure of control, Hesser said, “There’s a certain level of trust,” but countered by saying that’s staff views curation as a prime role, and that “if you open up the doors all the way, you turn into” (Hesser stated there are 20,000 recipes on compared to the 200,000 on Because of the increasing flow of cookbook and recipe information out there, Hesser said, people are looking for direction.

Doris Cooper, v-p and editorial director of Clarkson Potter and Potter Style, agreed with Hesser, and added that people go to cookbook apps to “solve problems,” using the example that if you have buttermilk in your fridge, you’re going to go to an app to find out how you can use it, rather than pick up a cookbook, which, Cooper said, is more of a reading experience.

The divergent purposes of print vs. digital cookbooks kept coming up during the panel. Melissa Clark, author and staff writer for The New York Times, who both writes and does video for the Times, said she has a different audience for each medium. “I don’t want to do one without the other,” Clark said, noting that younger people tend to watch her cooking videos, while older cooks tend toward her print columns. With the doors that digital has opened, Clark noted, people now first seek a brand they like, and then find the form they like, whether it be online, through apps, or in print. Read more »
