We just returned from our Fourth of July weekend, which spanned several states and left me unattractively matted with sunscreen, chlorine, and bug spray, scabbed with poison ivy and mosquito bites, but a smile imprinted across my sunburned face.
Why so happy? Because summer is awesome. And my book is ready for preorders. Want a peek?
I know winter food is probably the last thing on your mind, but you have to admit: After two weeks of blistering ninety-five-degree heat, a snow cone is sounding pretty good right now, isn't it?
Wintersweet can be preordered through all of the usual suspects—your favorite indie bookstore, Powell's, Barnes & Noble, Amazon—but here's another brilliant idea. If you buy it through my local bookstore, Back Pages Books in Waltham, I'll sign it before we ship it off. Just click here and then write what you want the inscription to read where it says "Order comments" (or just leave me to my own devices). Then we'll get it out as soon as it's available, which will be sometime in October. Back Pages is also hosting my book launch party on Friday, October 25 at 7 pm, so mark your calendars if you like food and books! More on that later.
Meanwhile, extra credit goes to anyone who can tell me what that dessert is up there on the cover.
