Original Post:
My publisher sent me SIX dozen cookies for hitting the NYT with ONCE IN A LIFETIME.


Do they know me or what? Not too long ago I went to a party and someone I hadn’t seen in a long time pointed at me and said “you are such a liar!” I was trying to figure out what I might have lied about (um, hello, I’m a writer, I make shit up for a living…) when she said “there’s no way you eat as many cookies as you say you do.” Well, I can PROMISE you that I do.

And while we’re talking about my book, it’s in Sam’s Club!!!!


I’m not sure I can adequately convey how much fun it is to go buy chicken by the ten pound bag, soap for the one hundred people in my house, AND my book all in one spot.


Tell me where you have bought the book, or where you plan to (and hello, hurry up!) and I’ll draw THREE names who will win the book of mine of their choice.
