How to Sew a Button
How to Sew a Button

Big Week!

Today How to Sew a Button officially hits stores, and I’m so excited! While I’d really like to stalk all the bookstores in my neighborhood to make sure they have copies front and center, I’m going to focus my attention elsewhere. Like, I dunno, here.

So here’s what’s doing.

Tonight is the book release party in Brooklyn, for which I made, oh, about a gazillion button-shaped cookies. (I used Martha Stewarts’ buttery recipe.) I’m so excited to see everyone! And be warned: No one is leaving without a pocketful of these babies. A nice bookseller will be on hand to sell books, and everyone who buys a book will get a very special free gift, while supplies last. *Cue the up and down eyebrows.*


Tomorrow, we’ll take this Button show on the road!

First stop, Borders in Whitehall, Pennsylvania, which is pretty much my hometown. I’ll be doing my first-ever reading on Wednesday, the 16th, at 7PM. Please stop by if you’re in the area! I promise I will try not to faint on you. Key word: Try.

Then, Thursday night, December 17th, I’ll be doing my second-ever reading at the Erie Bookstore at 7PM. They’ve already got about two feet of powder, so after this great event, I’m hoping to sneak in a few hours of snowboarding before we head back to Brooklyn.


Let’s see…what else? what else? Oh, I know!

I’d like to give a shoutout to my fabulous namesake at, who says Button reads “…as if your best friend suddenly morphed into a Donna Reed-Tina Fey hybrid.” *Blushing* Follow her blog, not because she’s hosting a giveaway of How to Sew a Button, but because she’s just plain great!

Ok, hope to see many of you tonight!
