Coming Soon: PX Me – The Sequel to PX This [How I Became a Published Author, Got Micro-Famous, and Married a Millionaire]



before anything else, i would just like to say thank you to everybody for all your continuing encouragement and support, i really appreciate it.

the next thing i guess i should do is clarify about the books, since i know there are a lot of new people here from the Daily News article and whatnot, looking for more information or elaboration. thank you for your interest!

from what i gather, some news/gossip outlets got it wrong; PX This (the book) actually came before PX This (the blahg), not vice versa.

also, if you want the stories mentioning the celebrities or whatever, that stuff is actually mostly in PX This (the book), and less here in the blahg or in PX Me (as was reported).

my next book, PX Me (How I Became a Published Author, Got Micro-Famous, and Married a Millionaire) is technically a sequel to PX This, and will chronicle the things that have happened since the first book was published. obviously, if you’ve read the first book, you’ll have a more profound understanding of the second.
but if you’ve never read PX This (and/or don’t intend to), that’s okay too— i sorta anticipate your interest in PX Me will stem from your curiosity about how to publish a book and possibly all the rest of it offered in the subtitle. that’s fine, that’ll work.


in any case, if you’re still reading this letter, wow i’m so grateful, that must mean you’re really intrigued. likely, you’re one of this blog’s regular readers (as opposed to the many inquisitive seekers led down this path by the google gods) and to you goes my deepest gratitude.

you know me well by now, better even than some of my closest friends (seriously! but more of that later, in PX Me). some of you (and you knooow who you are) have asked about "the fashion" — "where’s the fashion? what about the fashion? how come there’s no fashion?" — since clearly you’re well aware that PX This (the book) was, ironically, more about fashion than it ever was about restaurants, but it just so happens the dining-loving "audience" caught onto the book first.
you smart cookies, you.

well. incidentally, now is the time for me to really hunker down and get to the final editing of PX Me. as you’re perhaps aware, it’s been delayed several seasons already.

although this blog has a number of great contributors and exponents, they, as you’ve probably surmised, all still maintain full-time jobs within the F&B industry. and unfortunately, there’s simply no way i personally can edit this blog every day and also write my next book— it’s not just the amount of time involved, but also: trying to switch my brain from one type of writing to another every day is just too hard for me. sorry!

i’ve wracked my noggin for a solution and voilà! you, my beloved homies, inspired the bestest one. so, NOW you finally get "the fashion." hooray!


for the next several months while i work on PX Me, PX This (the blahg) will be updated less frequently, only about once or twice a week. hopefully that will amply satiate the restaurant-lovers and the scrutinizing googlies.

in the meantime, my daily blogging will consist mostly of photos— of— you got it. "the fashion." that way i can maintain my "brand’s momentum" (that’s book-marketing jargon, see) but still not have to switch my brain back and forth every day.


if you’re the type of visitor who comes for a daily "fix" of PX This and would like to take a gander at what comes next, please adjust your bookmarks and follow the white rabbit. you won’t have to visit two websites to stay informed of PX This, because i will gladly alert you every time it’s updated and offer up a handy hyperlink ladder from down in the rabbit hole.



are you ready? blue pill or red pill? if you want substance, well— i try. sometimes.

but if you want style— wooo child, have i got you covered.


here we go. please click here –>


thank you so much again.




p.s. the "style blog" is currently in the process of being fully updated. hopefully by the time you see this, it will all be caught up to the present day.
