Blog Tour, Guest Post and Giveaway: A Black Tie Affair (Ends 2/3)

Wednesday, January 20, 2010 Posted by Dina N


Today, I am excited to host author Sherrill Bodine on occasion of her new book, A Black Tie Affair! She graciously agreed to guest post at Just Another New Blog. Welcome!

Guest Post by Sherrill Bodine
Thank you so much for letting me chat with you.  I'm in Florida at two book parties for A BLACK TIE AFFAIR and a book signing at a Books-A-Million in Naples. I met someone here who was trying desperately to reach relatives in Haiti.  His fear and concern put so much in perspective.  I send my positive energy to all of you who have friends and family in Haiti.  You are not forgotten - two of the charity boards I work within Chicago are actively involved with the relief effort and there are so many more reaching out.
 
It was wonderful to see the support offered by the Hollywood community in one of my favorite guilty pleasures - The Golden Globes Awards.  I've been watching The Academy Awards since I was five years old and the Golden Globes for as long as I can remember.  They fulfill my fascination with fashion.


I explore my love of vintage couture in A BLACK TIE AFFAIR and when I had the good fortune to attend Milan Fashion Week, my interest in current couture reached a zenith.  My friend, Dusty, is the mother of Brian Atwood, shoe designer and creative designer of Bally.  Brian made it possible for us to have third row seats at the Versace Runway Show and equally wonderful seats at the Gucci Show.
 
With my little bit of fashion experience I offer my opinions on the gowns at The Golden Globe Awards.
 
Women don't look any better than Helen Mirren, Sophia Loren, Meryl Streep and Jodie Foster in black gowns with fabulous necklines!  Elegant and sexy at any age.
 
I love what Tom Hanks had to say about the film. JULIA AND JULIE - "With passion, fearlessness and butter anything is possible."  That is exactly how I feel about writing and life.  xoxox Sherrill 

Book Description
Fashion curator Athena Smith will do anything to get her hands on the Clayworth family's couture collection for her exhibit. So she's thrilled when she's called in to authenticate the gowns...until she falls ill while examining them and wakes up face-to-face with notorious Chicago bachelor Drew Clayworth.

Drew doesn't trust Athena one bit. He still believes she betrayed him years ago. So when his family's gowns go missing and Athena offers her help in exchange for the dresses, he reluctantly accepts. But they're both taken off guard by the barely restrained passion that's still between them...and the memories that are both bitter and sweet. As they work together to find the dresses, can they resist the sparks between them?
