The CHOCOLATE & VICODIN blog book tour reaches the end of the line today with its last stop. Check out the interview and review at Sheesh with The Merry, who you might remember better from Cranky Fitness. Big thanks to everyone who took part in the tour!
The blog tour has been lots of fun, and their are still a few opportunities to win a free book if you visit the posts listed in the full blog tour itinerary here. In addition to the blog tour, several other blogs have been kind enough to post reviews and host their own giveaways. You can find out more about them on this post and this post on my news blog.
Don’t forget, you might win an iPod or gift certificates to Amazon or iTunes simply by spreading the word about the book here!

Anyone who said “the pastry case in the coffeeshop,” please leave now (and pick up a cinnamon roll for me while you’re at it). I am of course referring to this:
Chocolate & Vicodin is featured on the “New in Paperback” table of Barnes & Noble, right at the front of the store. This pretty much made my year.

Tomorrow is the official release date for my book Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache that Wouldn’t Go Away. Someone told me they found it in a Barnes & Noble this weekend and Amazon started shipping it days ago, so it’s already starting to trickle out. Tomorrow you should be able to purchase it from fine bookstores everywhere, and if they don’t have it, ask them to order it. Thank you to everyone who’s made this possible, including you guys. Some of you have been reading this blog for years, and I might know you better by your email addresses than by your names, but I’m grateful for all your support.
I’d like people to start spreading the word about the book. I know that most of the books I read are recommendations from friends, bloggers or people on Twitter or Facebook. I want to encourage you guys to let your friends know about Chocolate & Vicodin, so I’m launching a contest.

The book release party for Chocolate & Vicodin: My Quest for Relief from the Headache that Wouldn’t Go Away was tonight at Flyleaf Books. I had a great time meeting some local readers, signing books and nomming on delicious cupcakes. If you couldn’t make it, you can still order a signed book online. Also, if you’re in the neighborhood, you can stop by Flyleaf Books tomorrow and grab some leftover cupcakes before the booksellers eat them all.
Here are some pics from the signing and of the cupcakes we made at a cupcaking party before the event. Mucho thanks to Big Bro and Sister-In-Law for use of their kitchen, and to Kindly Neighbor for helping, too. Sister-in-Law’s dad is a pharmacist, so we were able to get empty gelatin capsules to fill with color sugar and sprinkles. I promise, I didn’t really drug the audience! The other toppings were Smarties and Good and Plenty. (Good and Plenties? I don’t know the proper plural for that one.)
