Ruthie’s Reality: Interview with Elise Sax + Giveaway!
Welcome back to Ruthie’s Reality, chickens! Today author Elise Sax agreed to chat with me about her debut novel, An Affair To Dismember, which releases on January 29. If you like Janet Evanovich or are generally a fan of first-person heroines who struggle to keep their act together but nonetheless manage to attract the attention of various hunky men–and let’s face it, the appeal of this particular scenario is difficult to resist–you’ll want to check out this book.
Welcome, Elise! Okay, let’s start off with a tough question: the heroine of your Matchmaker Series, Gladie Burger, has been compared to Stephanie Plum — but I can’t help but note the similarities between hapless, disorganized Gladie and the official Elise Sax author photo. (Also, the presence of ice cream and Cheez Puffs.) Care to comment?
I love Stephanie Plum, and I’m a big Janet Evanovich fan, but it’s true, I’m pretty similar to my heroine, Gladie Burger. Recently I was at lunch with my editor and publisher, and they told me that I spoke exactly like I wrote. I didn’t know how to take that since I write pretty wacky characters and scenes….And yes, I eat a large amount of garbage while I write, unfortunately. It’s cosmically unfair that I write better when eating chips, peanut M&Ms, and Sour Patch Kids. Come to think of it, pizza would be great for breakfast this morning! No, I didn’t say that. Forget I mentioned carbs. (I’m trying to learn to love egg whites.) Read more
Beanie Babies, Black Dresses, and Grandma Bella + $15 GC Giveaway
Woohoo! My book comes out today! I’m Juliet Rosetti, author of The Escape Diaries, whose heroine is Mazie Maguire, escaped felon and bustier-wearing crime solver. Some reviewers have compared Diaries to the books of Janet Evanovich, one of my favorite writers. I should be so lucky as to have a smidgen of Janet’s talent. She has an amazing ability to generate laugh-out-loud moments and to create characters so vivid they virtually leap off the page. I’m so-o-o envious!
Sue Grimshaw, Random’s fabulous Genius-at-Large, suggested the idea of interviewing both kick-ass heroines, Mazie and Stephanie. So hang onto your big Jersey hair, because you never know what secrets these two may let slip–and it might not be coincidence that both ladies are holding handcuffs.

You torch one kitchen and they never let you forget.
It was the Thanksgiving I made the yam casserole. The mini-marshmallow topping turned out blobby and pale, bearing no resemblance to the photo in the cookbook. A couple of minutes under the broiler ought to brown it up, I decided, popping the casserole back in and wandering off in search of chardonnay. Read more
