I have a new best friend! Michelle¬†Bell @ http://lovelivejustjump.blogspot.com/2011/12/book-review-high-heels-and-slippers-by.html– thanks so much for the FAB review! If you ever find yourself in fictional character world, look me up and we can do lunch! ūüėČ

In case you are too lazy to follow the link here’s what she said:¬†¬†

I absolutely adored this book!! Josie is such a fun character. She puts her foot in her mouth frequently, she is a bit of a mess, but she is one of those characters that you just know would be your best friend if you met her.

Ella Slayne has such a charming voice to her story telling and I think I ran the gauntlet of emotions in this book. From the giddy moment of a realized crush to the heartbreaking realization that you can’t cure what ails everyone. Two very different leading men to tempt our Josie’s heart, Callum and Tom, make things very difficult. The supporting group of characters are a good combination and all bring a unique perspective to the story.

This is such a fun chick lit novel that I think everyone will love as much as I did. Ella Slayne has such talent and I hope we have something new soon from her.”

THANK YOU SO MUCH MICHELLE!!!!! 

You could have left out all the “Ella” mentions but that’s just my opinion of course…I mean there’s no need to actually refer to her in the reviews…all I’m saying is that we all know who the book is about don’t we? Me! Now where is that Ethan Allen catalogue…I think I need to order an expensive accent table now that I’m going up in the world! Has anyone made any coffee yet? Where’s my assistant?…Do I have an assistant yet?…No? Well I think I need a PA now…Ella, can we talk about this please? …Can you write me one in?…¬†Hello?…. Ella?… Anyone there?…Oh.¬† She’s gone.

I don’t know if you are aware if the above phrase but let me just tell you it sums up my position at the moment pretty accurately!¬† It may be just a Northern thing but we tend to use it when someone is having a right old proper sulk…and that’s me at the moment.¬† Why so sullen Josie? I hear you cry.¬†¬† Well I have been completely and utterly neglected of late.¬† You may have noticed that my blog posts have been few and far between.¬† It’s not been of my choosing but that of my creator, Ella Slayne, who seems to have been way too busy to stoop so low as to give me a voice over the past couple of weeks!¬†

Why so busy? Well apparently she’s been organising the¬†High-Heels¬†And Slippers book launch party and that, as well as attending various Halloween festivities (it’s alright for some – she is munching a Reese peanut butter pumpkin as we speak)¬†has kept her somewhat aloof!¬† I have been cast aside in favour of venue hunting, invitation printing and high-heel shopping (I can partly understand that though because the lure of a good pair of high-heels is hard to resist).¬†¬†

I appreciate that all this takes time but lets just take a moment to remember who the star of the show is here? ME!¬† JOSIE JENKINS! I am the heroine of the novel for goodness sakes and so it would seem wise and perhaps just a tad polite to give me some airtime during this whole book signing thing wouldn’t it? I mean, if it wasn’t for me there’d be no excuse for a new pair of Poetic Licence heels from Nordstrom would there? No!¬† There would be no reason to seek out a rather fashionable French patisserie in which to host a book signing do would there? No! And if it weren’t for me, there would be no point in inviting guests to come and enjoy tasty high-heel shaped cookies while milling around¬†and waxing lyrical about¬†women’s fiction¬†would there? No!¬†¬†

So all I’m saying is,¬†Ella, when you’re¬†schmoozing¬†at¬†your book signing¬†don’t forget who¬†got you there in the first place! Humph!

PS: and¬†by the way,¬†you’re never going to fit into that black dress if you keep eating fun size milky ways! Double Humph!
