But here's the big news: Look what I discovered to get my feet CA- and VA-sandal ready: orange mint foot cream! And speaking of feet...I have a confession to make: I have discovered zappos.com, a Godsend for a girl with size 11 feet. Check out one of my pairs of book-signing shoes (which were a bigger hit than me Tuesday night!) So the confession is that now that I Zappos...I kinda get the shoe thing.

Sounds like you're having a great time with your book signings. And thank you so much for the link to Zappos. I, too, am size 11 but I notice they have sizes much higher. Makes my feet feel small.

Holy Cow! Zappo's lists sizes up to 18!!! The sandals are very pretty and I'm hoping Scott and I can make it to the West End party. He was pretty envious that he couldn't make it to the TC -- we couldn't get a dogsitter and -- well, you know about our special issues dog :)

Oh yes, Zappos rocks! Gotta love their return policies too. HOW did I miss those shoes at your signing?? You looked glam from head to toe, I must say. Definitely very authorish! I'm with Lisa on that Rocky review; not sure the reviewer was on track with every point but Lisa's comment set it all straight. ENJOY all your upcoming signings! K.

Moana and Tayari, I'm in good company! I thought only I and drag queens wore size 11.
