The BlackBerry Diet – a novel

5 Comments

OK.

So.

Here it is. The first try-out synopsis I’m putting out there:

—————————————————————–

The Blackberry Diet is nothing like the Acai-Berry Diet.  The BlackBerry Diet is about sex and beauty and fashion and Paris and Calvin Klein and Kate Moss and family and aging gracefully. The BlackBerry Diet actually works. At least it did for Katja van Doorn. A harassed mother of three, who, several lifetimes ago, was an aspiring model in Paris, and now suspects that her husband Finn is having an affair, a BlackBerry affair, with a pretty Parisienne, who apparently looks like a younger version of Katja. While she’s spying through her husband’s BlackBerry, Katja stresses about her picture-perfect life in the Catskills, relives her early days in Paris, pines for her glory years in the New York fashion world and loses weight. As her marriage unravels she realizes that fifty is not the new thirty and she finally takes matters into her own hands and heads back to Paris, where past and present collide when she prepares to confront her young nemesis…

Whatya think?

  1. Hey Barb, that’s a pretty good summary. And although I’ve no idea what Acai-berry Diet is, I’d certainly make it a summer read.
    I’m glad you decided to get it out. It’s time!

    Keep us posted –
    Love, V.

  2. Can’t wait to read it 🙂

  3. It sounds as if it’s time to get into some grasping and gasping hands and rock a few worlds. The force is in you.

  4. Hell yeah!!!!! I like your writing….
    I also think you should eventually publish the ‘barbiedoesmiami’ blog… it’s so funny!

  5. All of the above!
