In my opinion , Candace Bushnell is a smart money maker. First the books , then the series that had all females hooked (except the haters that want to "seem" different" ) then movie number 1, movie number two on the works and now a new book series starring Carrie Bradshaw herself. How would this series be any different from Sex and the City if Carrie is still starring in it? Easy, the books will be the prequel of Sex and the City . I tell ya' that Candace is really smart and knows what her fans want. It will be interesting to see the life of Carrie pre-manolo time.
