A Moment of Jen
THE NEXT BEST THING — In Stores July 3rd!

It's been an exciting few weeks out here in Los Angeles.

My books appeared on "The Office" a few weeks ago, in an episode called "Garage Sale."

If you didn't see it, check it out here. Without giving anything away, it was one of the sweetest half-hours of TV I've seen in a long, long time. I only hope "The Great State of Georgia" can do as well some day.

Time Magazine named me one of its top 140 Twitter users (Tweeters? Twits? Never mind). They enjoyed my "Bachelor" tweets -- God help me, I miss that show -- and write, "the author of Good in Bed and Fly Away Home's smart tweets on writing — particularly the ongoing feud between chick-lit authors and quote-unquote real women novelists — make for entertaining, indispensable reading."

Entertaining and indispensable. Like a funny diaper for a not-quite-toilet-trained two-year-old!

If you agree, you can vote for me here...and, of course, you are always more than welcome to follow me on Twitter.

In non-Twitter news, I am having way too much fun in the writers' room, working on the first nine episodes for "The Great State of Georgia," which may be renamed "The State of Georgia." Or just "Georgia!" Stay tuned...and tune in to ABC Family for the premiere at 8:30 on June 29th.

I'm also doing a teeny tiny tour for the paperback release of FLY AWAY HOME.

On Saturday, April 30 I will be at the Warrington Country Club at noon, doing an event in support of the Doylestown Library. Tickets go on sale on April 10. Learn more here.

That night, I'll be at the library in Horsham at 5:30. Tickets for that event are $20, and you can learn all about it here.

On Sunday, May 1 at 3:30 I'll be in Los Angeles, appearing at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on the USC Campus.

I've spent years reading about the famed LAT FOB from the opposite side of the country, admiring the line-up and wishing I could attend. Finally, my wish has come true, and I'll be hanging out listening to Patti Smith, Aimee Bender, T.C. Boyle and as many other authors as I can see (the full list of participants is here -- and it's amazing).

Then it's back east, for an event at the Soho Apple Store at 103 Prince Street on Wednesday, May 4 at 6:30. On Thursday, I'm reading at the Gershman Y in Philadelphia at 7 p.m., and my beloved Headhouse Books will be on hand to sell books.

Finally, on Friday, May 6 I'll be in Chicago, doing a 6 p.m. event at the Apple store on North Michigan Avenue.

I hope to see lots of you out there...and check back for news about the GOOD IN BED !0th-anniversary contest, and some fun THEN CAME YOU giveaways, as I continue to count the days until "The Bachelorette."
