“Laughter is brightest in the place where the food is.” – Irish proverb
Within the next few weeks, there should be a beautiful new book gracing bookstores across the World. Not just any book – MY BOOK, Rice Pudding in a Duvet, a journey home with snacks.
It’s completely re-edited, exquisitely illustrated and with a funky new cover. I’d self-published it a couple years ago, and we languished together on the shores of ignominy for quite a while; hounding my friends and family with increasingly crazed marketing ploys in a rather pathetic year long Tupperware party. So, I shelved it. But this little book is too good to let go! With it’s new flow and additional funny chapters and with the help of Mill House Publishers , Facebook and my Instagram account it’s up and running and howling for an audience. These people like to laugh-out-loud, enjoy food and travel, are tired of bad news and wish to escape into the warm home of Alive Bonneville-Beck, pull up a chair and be entertained to a moveable feast.
It’s going to be very exciting to see how it enfolds these next few months. The publication date is November the 7th, but pre-orders can be made today. I’ll take my beloved Rice Pud on the road and will be popping-up first in Spain, with an event at Bookworld in Marbella on the 19th of October.
We’ll be in Copenhagen for a the launch of my photography exhibition and book signing on the 24th of November, and (hopefully) London in the new year.
