I've had a nice little break from book events over the past few weeks, but then I looked at the calendar and realized that winter is almost over. Yes, indeed. Only seven short weeks of fricking freezing weather until the first day of spring. GREAT NEWS! Except that once we hit mid-March, nobody will even be able to entertain the notion of a winter-themed cookbook without feeling the urge to stab the author in the neck with an icicle.
So thank you to everyone who bought WINTERSWEET this fall and winter, especially those of you who bought multiple copies! It is my best work (not counting my kids), and I really appreciate your support. A few more events are coming up in case you haven't been able to get your hands on it. For those of you who don't eat sugar, don't need any more cookbooks, can't spend any more money, are on a diet, don't bake, can't read, don't really like the cut of my jib, this is what I suggest so you can feel good about yourself in the morning: buy the book, read it through, and then regift it next Christmas. Or better yet, Valentine's Day. Who's to ever know? Surely you must know someone who does eat sugar, could use a few more cookbooks, can't spend any more money but would happily spend yours, isn't on a diet, is on a diet but not likely to stay on one, does bake, learned to read, or might actually like the cut of my jib. I'd be willing to bet this book would make that someone very happy.
Here's where you can find me:
Sunday 2/2, 2pm: West Falmouth Public Library, 575 West Falmouth Highway, West Falmouth
Saturday 2/8, 10am-2pm: Wayland Winter Farmer's Market, Russell's Garden Center, 397 Boston Post Road, Wayland
Saturday 2/15, 10am-12pm: Somerville Winter Farmers Market, Center for Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Avenue, Somerville
Saturday 3/1, 10am-2pm: Cambridge Winter Farmers Market, Cambridge Community Center, 5 Callender Street, Cambridge

Now's your chance to get your very own signed copy and perhaps do a little farmer's market shopping while you're at it. You can also purchase the book through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or your local indie bookstore (e.g., I just signed a bunch of copies for the New England Mobile Book Fair this week).
