It’s the second week of my Gratitude Giveaway! Enter and comment below to win an autographed copy of THE MARRIAGE PACT. One of the favorite gifts I received for my birthday last month was a roll of toilet paper. No, it wasn’t a joke about getting old and never knowing when you might suddenly “have  […]

Giving thanks… It’s the season of gratitude, my favorite time of year. Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, the festive atmosphere of Christmas and the New Year… I love it all. But Thanksgiving is especially important to me. Maybe it’s because – as a convert to Judaism – it’s really the only family holiday I celebrated as a child  […]

Just a quick, slightly belated post to say “thank you” to everyone who helped make THE MARRIAGE PACT launch last week a ton of fun and (from my end, at least) a big success. I am so grateful to Nicole Sohl, Brendan Deneen, Jessica Preeg and Annie Hulkower at Thomas Dunne/St. Martin’s Press/Macmillan Entertainment; as  […]

November 3rd is a big day in M.J.’s little world! It’s MARRIAGE PACT release day! And my birthday! And EVERY OTHER SATURDAY is free from today until Friday! In other news, I have already used my allotment of exclamation points for the entire month of November. Effusive punctuation aside, you can now get THE MARRIAGE  […]

Guys. Look at this. Isn’t it beautiful? You are looking at the official cover for the official re-release of THE MARRIAGE PACT, which I can now tell you will be coming to a bookstore near you on November 3, 2015. And guess what else? That’s my birthday. My 40th birthday. It’s too much to handle.  […]

I know, I know, I know…. You guys are telling me — with increasing (but loving) impatience — that you’re ready for another book. And I am so sorry that I’ve been sidelined more than once in the past year. I could say something precious and lofty like, “It’s all part of the artistic process,”  […]

Happy New Year! A year ago today, I set out a list of 36 books to read in 2014. Of those titles, I managed to read just over a third with these thirteen: 179 Ways to Save a Novel: Matters of Vital Concern to Fiction Writers by Peter Selgin Someone Else’s Love Story by Joshilyn  […]

Here. We. Go! It’s been a couple of months of biting my tongue while all the final details were hammered out and contracts inked, but I’m thrilled to announce that The Marriage Pact trilogy has been picked up by St. Martin’s Press/Macmillan Entertainment. They have bought the English-language publication rights to all three books and  […]

That’s right, we can now hear Aunt Mildred say, “Nur einen Moment auf den Lippen, ein Leben lang auf den Rippen.” (a translation of “A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips.”) That old bat. I am so delighted to have my first translated publication available (and for a short while it will  […]

Maybe I’ve got Emily Giffin on the brain after attending her talk at the Decatur Book Festival last weekend, or maybe there’s something else, but I’ve been seeing this scene from Something Borrowed in my head all morning [yes, some people get songs stuck in their heads, I get scenes]. And, okay, from this clip  […]
