Ah yes, that reaction you get from people when they're wondering why you're staring!
Without telling spoilers, in the next book, SNAP: New Talent, Maxie is in Kiev, Paris and Krakow. Lots of fashion. It ends on a real cliff-hanger, but...there's more!
I use Google and Google maps for a lot of descriptions.
Do you have things up on Wattpad?

I'm sorry you were disappointed in the short love scene...there are lots more! I did it deliberately because there are things hidden in Jean-Louis' life.
I'm planning on putting some of the books up for sale (or maybe free) on Amazon in October. If you'll send me an email at micheledrier@att.net with your best email address, I'll send you a note when they go on sale (it's usually only for a few days).
Do you live in South America?
When I began writing the story of Maxie and Jean-Louis I initially thought it would be three books, but I was so crazy about them and their world that stories kept zinging through my head (and my dreams). 
I also write mysteries and I'm currently in the middle of the third book in the Amy Hobbes Newspaper mysteries, plus I have a fantasy series I'm beginning to write and a sci-fi book.
It's not easy with all those other people (and creatures) running around in my head wanting to be let out, LOL!

Thanks so much for reading and commenting on The World Unfolds...and I hope you stick around. There are some interesting and romantic things to come!

  A Patek-Phillippe on his left wrist completed the look, more urbane than his usual LA jeans-and-jacket.
I'm retired now, but spent a bunch of time in print journalism. I've traveled a bit and I read a LOT, have some (low-level) friends in the film industry. I do do research, but I don't watch the celeb shows or read People. When it comes right down to it...I make stuff up! 
I do try and have some background truth and understanding, though. If you read any of the others (there are eight books now and I have the ninth one planned) I bring in some actual places and events.
