Sex in the City Movie Spawns Book

In Sex in the City, Carrie Bradshaw reads a book called “Love Letters of Great Men” to Mr. Big. Apparently there was huge interest in purchasing this book. Problem is that the book was made up. Fortunately for publisher Macmillan, there is now. It will be publishing an anthology of love letters from famous men such as Beethoven, Henry VIII, and Prince Rainier of Monaco.

The best epistolary romance in history will always be the letters between John and Abigail Adams. They exchanged over 1,100 letters beginning with their courtship in 1762 and ending around 1801. I love epistolary romances and one of my favorites is Connie Brockway’s My Dearest Enemy.

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    I can’t remember who I was speaking to about this right after I saw the movie, but we both predicted it would only be a matter of time before someone jumped on it and published one. I’d love to read it.
