It's still at it

I had a recipe post all ready to go for today, and then I woke up this morning and realized that there was something more pressing to say. That book proposal that I was working on a couple of months ago, it did its job. Because of it, I get to write a second book(!!). I’m so excited about it that my eye started twitching uncontrollably this morning, and several hours later, it’s still at it. I can hardly see straight. When a Paul Simon song came on the radio over lunch, my eye actually twitched in time to the music. This is how excitement feels: like my face is falling apart.

Yes, the official announcement came today, in Publishers Weekly, and now that I can, I had to rush over here to tell you. The book is tentatively titled Delancey, and like my first book, it’s more a story than a cookbook. It’s about a marriage, in a sense: about a man and a woman and the restaurant that they, however uncomfortably, gave birth to. It’s about what we do for the people we love. It’s about growing up. And most of all, it’s about a small business that we made with our own hands, on our own terms, and the community that came with it, a life that I had no idea would be ours.





The manuscript is due next March, and then, if all goes according to plan, it’ll be published in the spring of 2013. That date sounds so impossibly far away that somebody could almost make a sci-fi movie about it. But I hope it comes quickly.

Until then, I think we’re finished with big announcements and big changes around here. (YES!) Let’s get back to normal life. I’ll see you soon with that recipe.

Molly -- I'm so excited for your new book! I savored your other book like a spoonful of icecream on a hot day -- I had to linger over it, enjoy it, and felt totally refreshed after reading it. I've been looking for other books like it, but to no avail. Now I have something to look forward to!
Sorry about your eye twitching. I get that, except in my lip. It has an Elivs feel to it, but I promise it's not attractive.

Before I read your book, I was not a regular reader of this blog. Of course, after reading the book, there was no way I couldn't visit and see what you were cooking up.

I do look forward to the book because I think your writing is best to cozy up with, in book format, preferably under toasty warm covers with my head on a pillow. It's just not the same on a screen. :)

Molly, congratulations! A new business, a new home, a new book - that's a lot of new in one month! No wonder your face is falling apart :) - I love that expression, I might use it myself in the future. Hope the twitching has stopped.

I can't wait to get my hands on your new book already! I devoured 'A Homemade Life' when I first got it and gifted copies to various members of my family. I even took to reading sections of it aloud to my husband (a non-foodie) who then proceeded to bake muffins for the first time in his life (it was pretty good for a first time, his only error was using yeast instead of baking powder/soda, sigh).

We're in Switzerland, close to some very fine cheese and chocolate but sadly far away from Seattle, Delancey and the Pantry. However, an old friend just moved to Seattle and if we ever make our way over, one (or several!) visits to your communal table are in order. I hope we make it there soon.

What wonderful news! The world will be a richer place with your new book in it. Someone once told me that if you try to make your eye twitch, willfully, that you won't be able to. Focusing on trying to make it twitch can actually cancel out the involuntary twitching. So weird! But it works for me. Hopefully by now you don't need this advice anyway. Good luck on the book!

Molly, we are all so happy for you (as well as for ourselves)! I'm glad I'll have another one of your books on my shelf to turn to for delicious recipes and delightful stories. I've cooked half the recipes in your first book already, and I'm aiming to try them all before your next one comes out. Thank you for writing.

Congratulations, Molly! I'm eagerly anticipating your new book...in fact, A Homemade Life was one of the best books I've read in the past few years.

A couple weeks ago, while burning the candle at both ends and working on a similarly exciting project, my eye started twitching uncontrollably, too. I googled it - it's caused by stress, fatigue, and lack of sleep!

hey Molly, congratulations!! That sounds wonderful and I'm excited to read more of your beautiful writing. Although I just discovered you recently, you're a great inspiration and I'm sure that you'll become one of the very few foodblogs which I return to regularily.

About the eye-twitching. I had that too, recently. It thought it was just because my life was and is too exciting and somewhat sleep-deprived. It actually lasted for weeks and started to become annoying - so, just in case you don't get less excited and your eyes continue to twinkle to good radio tunes, you might consider taking some magnesium supplements or pay attention to eat magnesium rich foods, becaus that's what made the twitching stop here. One week of supplements and it was gone.

Good luck to you and warm regards from Switzerland...

Hi Molly! I really liked your book and am enjoying your blog... Your new book will be most anticipated!
About that eye twitch, take a magnesium supplement which really helps with all kinds of muscle cramps and twitches. My own eye twitch will come on during times of stress or general depletion due to illness, pregnancy, excitement etc and I have found it to be relieved in 2-3 days of taking magnesium tablets.

This will be a book I will preorder when it's available. It would be fabulous if you came back up to Bellingham like you did via Village Books/Ciao Thyme and have another event like you did with your first book---it was a fab evening.

I've just finished reading A Homemade Life. I loved it ... pure and simple. I don't know who said this, but I once heard that the most sincere compliment one could ever give is to say with all sincerity, 'I miss you and you're not even gone'. That is the way you made me feel about my Dad ... don't know if it makes sense, but your reminiscences of your Burg were so heartfelt that they yanked on my heart ... big time. Oh, and the reccipes were pretty compelling too!

Reading about the restaurant and it beginnings will be different. I'm sure I'll enjoy it too! Good luck with the writing process!

hi molly,

i stumbled upon your blog a couple of months ago, and it just made my day, my week, and that month! it made me want to write. so, thank you for that. i'm new to blogging, and having so much fun doing it that i wonder why didn't do it sooner.
congratulations on your new book. my copy of 'a homemade life' is on it's way from amazon, even as i write.
in india, the twitching of an eye, like many other things, comes layered with meaning - the eye twitches only when it foresees change, and for the better. so here's to that!
