Happy New Year!

Some random resolutions–besides the perennial one to lose weight and get organized.

1. Make the printed New York Times bestseller list with the publication of DEEP DISH. To do this, I need all my precious readers to scamper out and buy DEEP DISH the very nano-second it’s published–on Feb. 26. They only print the top 15 best-selling books, so that’s what we’re aiming for, folks. Also, the way the list works, it’s really based more on velocity than volume–so we need a lot of books sold in a very short amount of time. That’s where you all come in.

2. Hire an office assistant and get my taxes and paperwork un-snarled.

3. Keep my website constantly updated, with new pix and fascinating content.

4. Ditto for this blog.

5. Walk more, veg less.

6. Learn to use Microsoft Publisher so I can do more nifty things on my computer.

7. Be nicer.

8. Write a kick-ass new book, THE FIXER-UPPER, and hand it in on deadline.

9. Get family photographs in one place, so Katie can make me photo albums–which is what I asked for for my birthday, Christmas, anniversary.

10. Read more, especially the books chosen by my book club.

  1. You got a nice mention in the USA today on Thursday for Deep Dish. I will be first in line to buy it. I hope you do a book signing my way in Fort Myers,Florida. Would love a signed copy. Thanks for the recipe of the lemon cake. I made it for New Years Day and it was a big hit. Damn the Diet!

  2. Am on my way to Amazon to preorder it right now. I just bought Little Bitty Lies for the second time this week….wanted to reread it and had given my copy away. Keep up the good work and thanks so much for the blogs. I check daily for your “words of wisdom and mirth” Love the parts in your books about resale shops etc. I would drag home a cardboard box if somebody put a 50 cent sticker on it.

  3. Good Luck on your new book release! I cannot wait to get my copy!! I’ve been having withdrawls waiting for Deep Dish! Since I’m a foodie, I’m even more excited about this book! And I’m so glad I found your blog, its a real treat to read. I wish you nothing but continues success for ’08.

  4. I’m literally counting down the days until the new book! I cannot wait!!! I’ve read all the Mary Kay books and am now reading all the Trocheck’s! Love, love, love them all!
