Well, folks… today is the day. What started almost exactly one year ago is now officially published. Yes, that means as of today, you can buy Breakfast for Dinner in stores everywhere. Excuse us while we do a little happy dance because I will never tire of this feeling.
What a whirlwind year this has been, all our work finally resulting in something tangible. And the lucky recipients of advanced copies (so far) have had nothing but good things to say about it. The book itself is also quite photogenic, apparently.
Taylor and I are absolutely thrilled to see such positive reviews coming from places like The Washington Post, The Star Ledger, Detroit News, and The Kitchn. To see others enjoying the recipes that we put so much of our heart and soul into is the most rewarding feeling in the world.
Be sure to stay tuned to the Cookbooks page for upcoming media appearances and events, and our Press page for a full list of features. There’s also a number of giveaways happening throughout the blogosphere now and in the coming weeks. I’ll try to do my best to tweet and retweet as many of them as I can, so be sure you’re following me on twitter. Wheee! Isn’t this fun?
For locals… our first book signing (and release party!) is happening TONIGHT at Parnassus Books in Green Hills. If you’re in the area you should totally come and say hi. There may or may not be copious amounts of bacon. And sangria. I’ll be on Talk of the Town (channel 5) this morning at 11am, demoing the Mint Chocolate Chip Pancakes recipe from the book (hello, breakfast for dessert!)
We’ve got two other events planned in San Francisco and Napa later this week, and a final signing in Memphis at the end of the month (click graphics above for more information and locations).
Please know that while we’d love to do a coast-to-coast book tour, that’s just not in the cards (or the budget), so this is it for signing dates at this time. If you can’t live without a signed book, we’ve got them available for sale in our shop (and we’ll even personalize it for you if you’d like!) or if you want to mail your book to us and cover return shipping, we’re more than happy to sign it for you. Just shoot us an email! ;)
Finally, thank YOU all for your endless support, heartwarming comments, and all around awesomeness. This book and these recipes are our way of sharing a virtual meal, since (unfortunately) inviting you all over for supper might get a wee bit crowded. I don’t think our 4-person dining table could take it. But you know what? I think this is better anyway.
