Book tour, housekeeping, and you will now have Hole songs stuck in your head

My publisher tells me that finished copies of Delancey, hot off the presses, are due to arrive in their offices early next week. (!)

I have a lot of feelings about this, both of the excited and terrified varieties, because it means that the book will finally be done, donedoneDONE, but also that it’s too late to change anything about it, make it better, or otherwise obsess over it. It means that it’s no longer mine, in a sense. But on the upside, it soon will be yours!  It also means that you should grab a pencil and get out your calendar, because I’m taking this show on the road.



I’ll be traveling around, doing readings and signings - regrettably, not karaoke’ing Hole’s greatest hits - for a good chunk of May.  Brandon has to stay home and make pizza, and June has to stay home and work on her pronunciation of pizza, so I hope you’ll come out and keep me company. I got to meet many of you when my first book came out, and it was, by far, the best part of the whole book thing. I’ve been hoping that I would get to go on tour again with this book, and I feel so, so, so very lucky that I do. Please come say hello!

In the meantime, you can pre-order Delancey, if you feel sufficiently moved, at any number of places, like Apple iBookstore, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, University Book Store, Books-A-Million, Powell's, or an independent bookstore in your area.

With no further ado, here is the tour schedule. (I’ll also post it, as well as any updates, in the "click here for events and whatnot" link in the sidebar.)

We have an amazing independent book store here, and also it's where I live and I am a huge fan of both your first book and your blog :) Good luck and have fun and *fingers crossed* maybe I'll see you in SLC!

And I would love to add more stops to the list, but really, it's up to my publisher and the bookstores. And, weeeeeell, my mother and my mother-in-law might revolt if I'm gone any longer. They're coming to Seattle to help take care of June in my absence.

KatyBelle, I'm coming to Canada! But so far, only to Vancouver. So sorry!

The Black Manhattan sounds fantastic. I got the Nardini Amaro based on your (Brandon's) recommendation and love it, but, believe it or not, Averna is the amaro I have always had hanging around. I'm going to give this drink a try both ways - and maybe even try it with Scotch!

My most recent after-dinner drink has become B & B on the rocks. It is quite delicious.

So sad you are not coming to Chicago, but I understand you can't come everywhere! I made a trip to visit friends in Yakima a few years ago, and flew into Seattle with the intention to visit Delancy and Essex. It just so happened to be the week June was born, so Delancy wasn't open, but we were able to have drinks and some tasty snacks at Essex. One of these days I will get to meet you in person and thank you for all of your wonderful stories and recipes. I don't know if it's because I was pregnant, and your book accompanied me to many dr visits, that I feel so close to your writing? I worked for Anthropologie at the time and we were selling your book and I picked it up one day on a whim. Loved it and can't wait for the next! Best wishes and safe travels!

Unfortunately I learned my lesson with Politics & Prose when the Smitten Kitchen book tour came there. Even though the store is in a remote, hard-to-get-to part of town, the line snaked down the block and it looked like a claustrophobic nightmare inside! I'm sure you'll have a similar turnout.

Then I moved to my home, Missoula. Now am in SLC with my love. But I miss the scene in Seattle and Missoula too, believe it or not. I was happy to see all of the SLC votes, and understand with a sad heart that you can't add us.
