I've been a reader of your page for a while so I figured I'd leave a comment. I LOVED your book The Accidental Diva. Loved it! I actually went to grad school with your sister Lauren. =)

Keep doing your thing Ms. Tia. Have a great time at Howard and I look forward to your next novel!

Peace & Blessings

Hmph. I'm sorry I'm going to miss you yet again! Maybe you'll come to the *ahem* REAL HU's FABULOUS Journalism School in the NEAR future. Until then, I'll settle for being there in spirit. Have a GREAT time.

hey tia.

you will never recall this, but i met you when i was doing PR for lip lingerie with dianne brill and winnie from siren. just wanted to send a note and tell you i am so proud of you - and also to mention that there is at least 1 man (in Europe, natch) following your blog.
i read accidental diva (in 20 hours) last year (and loved it) and have since followed your blog. your brand of wit and charm and downright sass is such a pick me up. congratulations on everything (you're lookin fab in the commercial) and i look forward to hearing and seeing and reading so much more from you.

chapeau to ya!

Great to see you again and thanks for your strong support of Howard! You and Scott made me realize you don't need to rush in to publishing. And your dad was a riot! I can sooo see my dad telling people how he inspired me to write:)
