So did anyone catch the Daily Show last night? Well I did (as I usually do). I was lounging on my couch enjoying a piece they did on “The War On Valentine’s Day” when they cut to a brief interview Nate Corddry did with someone in the Harlequin publicity department. I sat up a little straighter, I knew that woman. I can’t remember her name for the life of me but I know I’ve met her before. Anyway, at one point Corddry held up a pair of pink furry handcuffs and asked her to explain them. I jumped to my feet, “Hey!” I exclaimed, "those are my handcuffs!”
You see, when Red Dress Ink was trying to create a buzz about Sex, Murder And A Double Latte they sent out gift boxes to various booksellers and media. On the outside of the box they had printed “What happens when you cross chick lit with a murder mystery?” and inside the box they wrote, “Just about anything.” Each box contained a pair of pink furry handcuffs (if you’ve read my book you’ll understand the reference).
Many who received these cuffs told me they found a place for them on their desks to add a little kitsch to their workplace. I usually assume those people are lying. It’s not that I don’t believe that they kept the handcuffs, it’s just that I don’t believe they use them for decoration.
Anyway, this woman must have actually kept them on her desk and now my furry handcuffs are famous! They didn’t actually mention my book but that’s okay. It'll just be our little secret.
