I'm big in Malaysia!

So, yes, I knew it was bound to happen one of these days, and now, it has: I'm finally an international superstar.

Yes, from now on, I will start carrying a tiny dog in my pocketbook and travel around with an entourage at all times. I shall only drink Cristal and I will bathe in La Mer cream, just like J. Lo. I will go to the supermarket in diamonds-- wait, no, that's not right-- I'll hire people to go to the supermarket for me, and I'll create a list of ridiculous demands, like bowls of green M&Ms only. Hell, I'll get a bowl of M&Ms with my face on them! I will no longer be known as Brenda Janowitz. No, from here on out I will be B. Jano. (Again, um, just like J. Lo. Gosh, I really need to get some other international superstar role models....)

And all this is because I am finally an international superstar. Well, okay, maybe not an international superstar, but an internationally published author, to be sure!

JACK WITH A TWIST is being translated into Malay! Here's a pic of the beautiful new cover and my fabulous new name!


So, forget those people who ask whether or not it plays in Peoria-- my stuff plays in Kuala Lumpur, people! Now I clearly must start dressing like Catherine Zeta Jones when she was in that heist movie with Sean Connery (they were in Kuala Lumpur, right?)

Next time you're in Malaysia, pick up a copy of JACK! Or, MAHKAMAH CINTA, as it's known over there. And tell them that you're a part of B. Jano's entourage. Or, um, B. Janot, as the case may be. Okay, they probably won't know who I am, so just tell them that I'm the girl with the silly little dog in her handbag. No, the other one. No, not that one, the other one.

You know what, if you get to Malaysia, just tell J. Lo that I said hi.
