Spirited Awards Nomination

by on February 05, 2011

With Tales of the Cocktail 2011 on its way, nominations for the Spirited Awards are being solicited. With that being said, I’d love to get Fix the Pumps  nominated in the Best New Cocktail/Bartending Book category. I’m setting my expectations at a reasonable level, considering that it is my first book and was self-published, just being nominated would be a significant reward. Now, I’m not being pessimistic when I say this, but my chances of winning are most likely zip, zilch, nada. Why? Because there’s this great guy named David Wondrich (Esquire drinks columnist / editor, Ph.D in comparative literature, etc.) who put out a great book called Punch this year. You can head on over to the Tales Nomination Form to nominate Fix the Pumps. Thanks.
