Hope to see you at one of these events!


Finally the book is out and available at your favorite book store or online book retailer. 

The Chicago Tribune says "readers hungry for cleverly written contemporary romances will definitely want to order Off The Menu"

The Parkersburg News and Sentinal says "This is a great contemporary romance!"

My mom says "I love it!"

Both Jennifer Weiner and Jen Lancaster have put it on their short lists of recommended summer reading.

Beginning tomorrow, I have several events coming up in the greater Chicagoland area, and I REALLY don't want to read chapters to empty chairs, so come and play with me and I promise you can ask me about which parts of the book are real, and why I put purple streaks in my hair, and which of the Housewives is my favorite.  Grab your pals and pick one or more of the events this week or next and come say hi!

To everyone who pre-ordered, thank you thank you, it means the world. I hope you love it. And I hope when you love it, you help get the word out!  Tweet, blog, tell your friends, suggest it to your book club.  Post great reviews on Amazon or Barnes and Noble.  You are officially my PR team.

More soon, in the meantime, I really hope to meet a lot of you in the next couple of weeks!

Yours in Good Taste,
The Polymath


  1. Will you have copies for sale at the book signings?

    1. There will be copies for sale at all events, but you are also welcome to bring in your own copy to be signed if you have already purchased.

  2. I plowed through the book this weekend - couldn't put it down! Wish I lived a bit closer so I could check out the cooking demo event - what a great idea!

  3. I ordered your book and am about to start it as soon as I finish the current one I'm reading. I definitely wish I lived in the Chicago area to hear you speak; I loved The Weird Sisters, too, so that event at The Book Cellar would be a real treat. Have fun!

    BTW, I love the new look of your website/blog!!

  4. Hi Stacy - just finished reading your latest book - It was a great read! Congrats on all of your success. JillFay

  5. I finished Off the Menu last weekend and I loved it! I have to admit I have a crush on Dumpling... My heart melted a little when he left a present in RJ's shoes - Made me feel good that my cat isn't the only one to seek revenge that way :)
