Fast Food Maniac update

I'm behind on my TV, but I've got a good reason.

Fast Food Maniac was released on Groundhog Day, and folks seem to be enjoying what I wrote, which is nice.

In printed form
I did some book signings at WORD in Jersey City, Barnes & Noble in Tribeca, and Book Revue in Huntington, Long Island. It was nice to see that bookstores do still exist, and I should do a better job supporting the indies. Thanks to everyone who came out in the cold metro NY area weather.

Looking presidential at Book Revue.

Robin mentioned my book on the air right before the show took a vacation break, but I have a feeling now that my audio book is out, that won't be the last time you'll hear about it on the Stern show.

Fast Food Maniac has been a #1 New Release in a bunch of Amazon categories including Humor: Cooking and Travel Dining Reference. There are a ridiculous amount of categories on Amazon. Amazon also chose the book as one of the Best of the Month for February, which is very cool.

I also made the cover of Explore LI in Newsday (Long Island's newspaper) and Men's Journal wrote a nice piece. There are some more articles coming that I look forward to reading.

Not the most flattering shot, but gets the job done.
So what's next? I'm really not sure. I will be returning to MLB Now this Friday and will work fast food into a conversation about Spring Training.

I don't have any other signings scheduled, but if I take a trip and there's enough interest, I'm happy to create one on the fly. Hoping for Pittsburgh, Ann Arbor, or other towns that I frequent and love.

For those who have been generous enough to buy the book, thank you. For those who haven't, what are you waiting for? If you would like to purchase a signed copy, please email me at and we'll get it done.

I'm anxious to hear what you thought of Fast Food Maniac. It was fun writing those reviews and making all those lists. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.


  1. You have done a serious job and achieved good results. The book is really worth it to get on the list of the best and that people talk about it. You know, I was intrigued by its name and it made me read the review, after that I could not stop.

  2. subject and I think that it would be really interesting to create such discussion with other this website visitors. Anyway thanks a speedypaper lot one more time for the great and informative publication. And I will definitely be waiting for more such nice posts like this one from you. Kind regards, Peter Rickson.
