Good News: Best Week for The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook!
This week my publisher informed me that we had the best week yet for book sales of the Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook.
How much do we love to hear that?!
In May, the book was in preorder.
It hit retail in June.
We have been hard at it to share the good news with book signings, events, and reviews.
You can follow along at the book’s The Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook Facebook page
Steve, my marketing guru from Quayside/Voyageur Press knows how to keep us diligent and focused.
He wrote that all the hard work is paying off, according to Nielsen Book Scan
That is music to my ears and some sweet reward.
So first – hats in the air to all of you who have supported the book and the chefs and artisanal growers.
These dedicated crafts people deserve every success.
We are geared up for the East Hampton Library Author’s event, Saturday, August 11, 2012
I am so honored to have been invited to participate in this prestigious and swanky event at East Hampton Author's Night
Authors Night is a lavish fundraiser to benefit the East Hampton Library. All proceeds go directly to the Library. Beginning in 2005 with a handful of dinners and a few hundred attendees, it has grown to be the premier literary event of the Hamptons with over 160 authors and more than 1,000 people in attendance.
The evening begins under the tent at the Library. Guests enjoy fabulous hors d'oeuvres and wine while they meet the authors, buy their books and have them inscribed. The most recent titles for each author are available for purchase at the event. Guests can also bring their own books to have them inscribed.
From there, the evening continues as some of the authors discuss their most recent book at dinner parties held in private homes throughout the Hamptons.
And I was thrilled to come off of beach yoga this morning – too dreamy – to read a Twitter post at my @chefsgardens from @MontaukNiteLife showing a picture/image of the Hamptons & Long Island Homegrown Cookbook and the post: “A must for any Hamptons foodie!”
How fast can you RT?!
Thank you from the bottom of my Homegrown heart.
Plus, I am going to enjoy some time with my new homegrown Jam friend, Sean, from House Beautiful and his own passion, www.SpectacularyDelicious.com/
And no frets for that NY Times story today about Montauk Hipster Fatigue. No hats for them. Literally. Especially that cursed Fedora J\ New York Times Hipster Fatigue in Montauk
