Vicki Batman ~ if it's not Sunday, must be #handbag Monday & guest Sue Swift #book #sexy

~Handbag Monday~
Today, I have the pleasure to bring you fellow author, Sue Swift. Let's take a look at what Sue brought:


Here's what Sue says: I loooove this little bag. It's so clever! As you can see it is designed like and resembles a Chinese takeout carton, and the theme is echoed in the brocade fabric.
The heroine of Phoenix and Dragon carried a similar one:
James grinned. “Here.” From a chest of drawers, he produced a cunning handbag made of the same silk brocade as Liza’s dress. With a heavy silver wire handle, it was designed to look like a Chinese takeout box.
She snatched it from him. “This is the cutest little bag I’ve ever seen. Is it from your sister’s shop?”
“Yeah, she carries some nice stuff.”
“I’ll have to stop by there.”
Here's the blurb from Phoenix and Dragon:
Setting: contemporary San Francisco.
Tough, clever and beautiful, biracial detective Liza Bowman struggles with a kidnapping case until she finds the victim's secret sex diary, which reveals that the young female vic went to a bar dressed in scanty red leather and read The Story of O. She hasn't been seen since.

Liza recklessly imitates the vic's last known location and activities, and falls into the hands of James Li, the most notorious whoremaster in the city. Wealthy and handsome, James has already crossed paths with Liza—when she dared to arrest him.
In James' view, reading a famous bondage novel in public is a blatant come-on, and he's eager and ready to give his nemesis what she wants.

Wow, Sue, that bag is just adorable. I'm going to have to find me one. And love how you incorporated a favorite accessory into your story. I do have a red brocade clutch that is gorgeous. I should be carrying it....
Thanks so much for being with me today!


Poinsettia handbag: Week 6

I had a great deal of time to work on the Poinsettia handbag this past weekend. As you can see, the black is almost completely filled in. I'm working toward the edges. I'm pretty sure I don't want the bag to be as large as pictures. I have to measure a similar bag for size and determine what I will do.
