Issue #031, July 11 - Viva Empanadas!
July 11, 2014
Dear VIP (Very Important Adventuress)

Viva Empanadas!

It’s been a busy month since last you heard from me.

I completely rebuilt my writers’ website,, and have been working with some exciting new writers on more personal adventures to share with you at

But I was not too busy to take time out for FOOD!

The school where I’ve been taking Spanish lessons offered a class on how to make Colombian empanadas, so naturally I had to be there!

Now you too can make empanadas the South American way. CLICK HERE to read THE EMPANADA EXPERIENCE (complete with recipe and how-to photos).

On another note, I’d like to ask a personal favor.

I plan to (finally) debut my memoir, Coming to Las Vegas—a True Tale of Sex, Drugs and Vegas in the 70s (I’ve only been working on it for 30 years!) in September.

It’s about how I moved from LA to Vegas in 1973 to join a circus and ended up opening the original MGM Grand Hotel as a cocktail waitress.

Would you be willing to be a “preview reviewer” for me?

This means I’d send you a pdf of the book and you would read it and write a few lines or paragraphs about what you did or did not like about the story. With your permission I would then use your (hopefully positive) review line or two publicly to promote the book.

If this is something you’re interested in doing, please e-mail me at and let me know.

And lastly, here’s a cool thing about LUGGAGE I want to share with you:

Say goodbye to carrying and checking bags with this worldwide destination luggage delivery service. Check it out here:

Enjoy your day,
