Spring has sprung, the publication date of my cookbook is getting closer by the minute, and my book tour, too, although I can’t think too much about it because I have so many things to get done before I leave (buy new dress, write new book), it is making my head spin.
The list of book tour events is still being fine-tuned and a few more will be added in the coming days (in Seattle and London in particular), but I thought I would post it now so you can save the dates, if you will do me the honor of not letting me sit alone at the back of a bookstore, my felt tip pen uncapped and drying.
I will keep this list updated, so check back for new events; they will be marked with a tag that will say, rather fittingly: new!
Note: A booksigning dinner or luncheon is a meet-the-author type of event that’s hosted at a restaurant. The admission price includes the cost of the meal (the menu will usually feature recipes from the book) and sometimes a copy of the book, which the author signs during the event.
And I will take this opportunity to say that I have cooked from my own book for the first time a few days ago, cracking it open, wedging the upper right-hand corner under a jar of jam to keep it to the right recipe, following my own instructions, and smudging page 167 just a tiny bit. It’s a lovely feeling.
