1. Driving Hungry is slated to be published in hardcover by Pantheon! (And, if all goes well, later on in paperback by Vintage). The original plan was to publish it as a trade paperback, but my editor pushed for the hardcover, which he tells me is good news, as it means the critics and reviewers will take it more seriously.
2. Publication is now being forecast for spring/summer 2015 (June/July of next year). It seems like ages away, but that will give me some time to dive back into the Taxi Gourmet blog and back into the world in general (I admire those writers who can multitask and be on social media and work on multiple projects at once, but I've discovered I'm not one of them...).
3. We're in the final stages of designing the cover for the book - which will be taxicab yellow! As soon as it's official, I'll send you an update and a picture.
Again, I'm sorry for the long gap between updates - but I wanted to wait until I had something concrete to report before I contacted all of you.
Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions about any of this.
Thank you again for supporting me in this project. I've said it before and I'll say it again: this book would not be happening without your backing!
All the best to all of you,
