Here's to all you hotties who’ve gotten into HOT WATER or intend to get into it real soon. We all need to indulge ourselves in a steamy weekend now and then. Especially one that can change our lives. Isn’t that the ultimate fantasy?
Remember the quote that starts the book: “Women are like tea bags. They don’t know how strong they are until they get into hot water.” Eleanor Roosevelt - Bless her feisty heart!
So talk to me. What would you like to know? I’m ready to divulge all the secrets (well, maybe not ALL) of how HOT WATER grew into a novel and how it became #2 on a best seller list in central California. The Da Vinci Code was #4 on that list. A framer, for sure!
A question I often get at book signings is, Where can I find William? Well, here’s an answer. Eduardo Verastegui. Is he incredible, or what? Now, if he has a philosophy degree... oh, who cares!
Seriously, since January when HOT WATER was released by Berkley /
Penguin, I’ve been asking myself, what is it about the book that
delights readers so much. I get e-mails posted at 2:00 AM from women who read it in one sitting. Sure, it’s full of hot sex, but I think it’s more than that.
I think it’s a celebration of turning the tables on the “Pretty Woman” story. (A woman having the courage to do something men have done since the beginning). It’s a celebration of breaking society’s rules and getting away with it. No, not just getting away with it, but having it turn out beyond our wildest dreams.
What if a woman could hire a gorgeous younger man for a weekend of fabulous mega-sex at a lush spa resort - spa treatments, silky mineral water soaks AND amazing sex. Not to mention, Latin dancing. Oh, my God!
And then, what if he turned out to be not only highly tuned to the
feminine psyche, but smart and educated and aware of the central flaws
in our culture that cause so many men to act like such, well...
Yes, I know. There’s about as much chance of that as finding a leopard skin bikini that doesn’t ride up your butt. But, hey, if could happen. We’ve gone to the moon, invented the internet and sandals with bottle openers on the soles. Anything’s possible.
Even falling in love when you least expect it.
