BOOK COVER REVEAL – Pizzazzerie: Entertain in Style

Pizzazzerie: Entertain in Style! NEW Party book!TODAY IS THE DAY! You’re looking at the cover of my new book! As you can see above, the title is my own brand name which I hope will express to you how much I love this signature book devoted to all the things you love about this site (never before seen, of course). The book is hardback, over 200 pages, and definitely the largest book I’ve written. Want to know what’s inside? Keep reading…

It’s now available for pre-order! All you have to do is head over here to Amazon (and here on Barnes & Noble) and it will ship in early August. For Amazon, you won’t be charged until it ships and should the price lower, you’ll pay that lower price. Hooray!

I’m beyond ecstatic to finally be sharing this cover with you. I worked for well over a year (almost every single day) on this book. This is truly a dream come true. There are so many hands who had an impact on this book from my publisher, editor, photography, and more! I wrote it alongside my mother who is the ultimate hostess with the mostess. Tori Spelling was dear enough to write a lovely forward that I’m so excited for you to read!
