My First Press Interview!

As  first time author, I was excited to have my first real interview with the press.  What a milestone!  It was with Mary McVean of the LA Times, for the paper’s food-related blog, Daily Dish.  I was excited and Mary couldn’t have been nicer, or made me feel more at ease.

When I saw what Mary wrote online at the LA Times’ website, I was even more excited.  She did a great job of conveying the fun and spirit of the book.  If you haven’t seen it, here’s a link:

I really appreciated Mary mentioning my book signing event at Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Nov. 4th.  That’s one day after the book comes out on November 3rd and it will be a fun celebration.  Everyone is welcome to come. There will be drawings for food-related goodies and in-store treats.  The more people who know about the book, the more happiness and laughs (and cupcakes) to go around!

We’ll be adding more signings that we’ll post on this site and on our Facebook fan page, The Art Of Overeating.  Look there for the latest updates!

Oh – and please read Mary McVean’s piece on The Art of Overeating:
