Miss Nyet


The Chicago Literary Hall of Fame is thrilled to announce that its 3rd annual induction ceremony will be held Nov. 30 at the Chicago Cultural Center’s Claudia Cassidy Theater as part of the city’s 150th Birthday Celebration.

In anticipation to this event, you are invited this saturday at the CLHOF silent auction and cocktail party, hosted by SNL comedian and actress Nora Dunn, at the Hilton/Asmus contemporary 716 N. Wells in Chicago.

A limited amount of tickets is still available for purchase. Details for the party can be found here.

 

Attached is an article about Delphine Pontvieux, who will also be in attendance at the event, written by Donald G. Evans, founder and executive director of the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame.

 

Does she juggle too?

“You might know Delphine Pontvieux as the author of the thriller ETA and the publisher of Miss Nyet Publishing. Or you might know her as a tri-athlete, scuba instructor, waterboarder or rock climber. Maybe you’re aware of her work as an actress in LOL, where she played Joan of Arc’s mother. You could have bumped into her in her travels as an international saleswoman and promoter in the music and entertainment industries. Perhaps you just know her as the really tall and attractive French woman.
Now, in a kick to the face to all of us trying to get one thing right, she designs jewelry.” Read the rest of the article here.



Jessica Cage, freelance journalist and writer for the examiner, wrote this article for CBS CHICAGO NEWS website.

What makes it even better for us at Miss Nyet Publishing is, we had no idea it was coming out until the article popped up in a google alert message! So thank you, Jessica Cage, for enjoying Delphine Pontvieux’s first effort so much you put it on top of your top five list of independent Chicago authors and publishers to watch out for!

This year proved to be another successful lit fest in beautiful, hot and sunny Chicago.

Who says people don’t buy books anymore? Judging from the never ending crowd of Chicagoans strolling among the booths, listening to readings and chatting with authors at their tables, it looked like the written word has a future, and a bright one at that.

It is such a pleasure for an author to meet face to face with fans and prospective readers alike. Some who bought Pontvieux’s novel ETA-Estimated Time of Arrest last year came back to the booth to talk, give their feedback and impressions about the story. The only thing they seemed disappointed about was that the sequel to ETA was not for sale yet! Do not despair, Delphine Pontvieux is hard at work and we are confident the sequel will be there for them to buy well before next Printers Row!

Another first at the fair was the very first public presentation of her jewelry collection, Anchor Bracelets.

Many visitors at the fair left with their own one-of-a-kind bracelet, hand-made by Delphine Pontvieux. We will be showcasing her latest work online here soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime, should you want to hear more about the collection, and how to order your custom made piece of jewelry, you can contact her at anchorbracelets@gmail.com to receive a pdf file that explains step-by-step how to design and order your own bracelets from her. (or to order a specific model from her existing collection.)

Check out the photo gallery of the Miss Nyet booth, which we, like the previous years, shared with our good friends at Avendia Publishing.

If you missed the event, order your hardcopy of ETA-Estimated Time of Arrest on our site and Pontvieux will be glad to personalize it for you!

keep on reading, always,

The Miss Nyet Crew



If you happen to be in Chicago this Saturday, be sure not to  miss PRINTERS ROW. Now a long-standing perennial event organized by the Chicago Tribune, Printers Row regroups hundreds of Authors, publishers and book sellers in the historic printers row neighborhood in downtown Chicago.

For the complete schedule of events taking place on Saturday (and it is a packed one!), please visit: http://www.chicagotribune.com/media/acrobat/2012-05/70194169.pdf

This year again, Miss Nyet Publishing will be in attendance, along with Delphine Pontvieux who will be present all day Saturday at the booth to sign copies of ETA-Estimated Time of Arrest, and to talk about ETA’s sequel, which we are planning to release in early 2013.

We will also be selling copies of Pintxatu, the super excentric Basque tapas cookbook which comes with a full cd compilation of Basque bands. In lieu of wine pairings, we link each recipe to a song!

You will also get the opportunity to take a peek at Delphine’s brand new unisex jewelry line, the Anchor pin collection, or Points d’Ancrage, for the first time.

We are looking forward to seeing you all to chat a while and enjoy the weather, which promises to be warm and sunny.

Miss Nyet will be located on Polk street -under a tent booth, this year-, alongside Avendia Publishing.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

COPIES OF HER NOVEL WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR SALE, ALONG WITH PINTXATU (BASQUE COOKBOOK WITH CD COMPILATION) AND SAMPLES OF HER LATEST CREATIONS, THE ‘ANCHOR BRACELET’ JEWELRY LINE.


It certainly is a random thing that was absolutely not intended on the part of Basque media and television channel EITB, but it caught our attention this morning at Miss Nyet HQ.

EITB’s internet banner ad (see photo) features, aside from its slogan “tus nuevos ojos para ver el mundo”, (your new eyes to see the world), two eyes of a different color: one is blue and the other the color of amber, which happens to be exactly similar to the eyes of Lartaun, the hero of Delphine Pontvieux’s thriller titled “ETA-estimated Time of Arrest”, who happens to be affected by heterochromia.

Do we hear “subliminal imagery?”

LOL-Laughing Out Loud, featuring Demi Moore, Miley Cyrus, Ashley Greene, Douglas Moore…as well as Delphine Pontvieux (who plays the role of Joan of Arc’s mother) is set for a MAY 4 US release.

In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes and Facebook, Lola (Cyrus) and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When Lola’s mom, Anne (Moore), “accidentally” reads her teenage daughter’s racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown. Through hilarious and heartfelt moments between mother and daughter, LOL is a fresh coming-of-age story for modern times.
