Taco USA Now Entering Its Third Printing--YAY!

Got the very nice news yesterday from my editor that my Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America is now in its third printing as a hardcover book.

Guess my three years of incessant promotion worked, eh?

I'm not going to call it an official best-seller yet--unlike my previous two books, it didn't crack the Los Angeles Times best-seller list, not even for a week--but like the paperback edition of my ¡Ask a Mexican! column, it continues to sell and sell and sell. How far will it go? Nobody knows!

To those loyal readers who have purchased the book: gracias, from the bottom of my heart and apex of my panza. To those of you who haven't: what are you waiting for? Just $16 on Amazon, kids!

I visited MOLAA in Long Beach in late September, and there were 3 copies available for sale in the gift shop. *Ustedes*, if you're interested in this tome, buy it from the museum and support this modest gem in gritty Long Beach. And buy some other merchandise for holiday gifts too.

Loved this book. I've always cooked from scratch. My tortillas, masa, because of the memories i have from my grandmother and her sisters cooking for hours at a time here in Santa Ana or in Mazatlan. Now I have stories to tell for the next tamale party. And perspective to sell my foods. Great book from a respected local.

 @JBinOC I think that was before my book signing, when I cleared them out! And I concur about supporting MOLAA!
