Trigiani on The Today Show

Adriana Trigiani appeared on the Today Show yesterday to discuss her new novel, Very Valentine, with Hoda and Kathy Lee. Very Valentine is the first book in a new series (there will be three; the next one comes out next year).

Give the clip a watch; she’s a riot. That woman should give lessons in how to control an interview.

As a result of the appearance, the book shot up to #46 (it’s now at #73) in Amazon sales rankings, indicating it will follow her Big Stone Gap series onto the print bestseller lists.

Trigiani reveals on the show that Ashley Judd has just been signed to play Ave Maria in the movie of Big Stone Gap; Whoopi Goldberg is already signed for the movie. 

On Trigiani’s Web site, she says she has a Y.A. novel coming in the Fall, also the first in a series, Viola in Reel Life.

Very Valentine is reviewed in the new issue of People (2/16, with Jessica Simpson on the cover — she’s proud of her body!). Although it gets just three of a possible four stars, the review reads like a rave; “sly, sensual and dripping in style…And Valentine…feels like a charming good friend.”
