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.



MISS NYET JEWELRY

STYLISH UNISEX CUSTOM JEWELRY WITH AN EDGE

Where did the summer go? It sure went by way too fast, but the good part is, we did not have a minute to spare to pretend to be bored!

But, fear not, we’re back!

Just like a squadron of hawks swooping down on a field mice convention, the brand new Miss Nyet bracelet collection is about to latch onto your unsuspecting wrists.

When and where can you discover the new creations, you ask?

  • If you are in the Chicago area this weekend, Saturday 29 and Sunday 30th of September, you are in luck:

Delphine Pontvieux, who creates all her jewelry by hand, here in the city, will unveil her new collection this weekend at the Randolph Street Market.

As seen in Travel & Leisure, the NY Times, Lucky Magazine and featured on TV news shows and web casts, the Randolph Street Market Festival is considered “a mecca of cool”, “the best hot spot for antiquing”, “the best Chicago venue for people watching”, and “the Barney’s of Vintage”. As one of Chicago’s most happening monthly parties, Randolph Street Market has become the summer destination!”

The Randolph Street Market Festival is home to the world-renowned Chicago Antique MarketIndie Designer Market, Modern Vintage Chicago and the Holiday Market. This European-style, indoor-outdoor urban antique market in the historic West Loop neighborhood features 200 select purveyors of high quality, amazingly priced “finds”, offering unlimited creative inspiration and hours of fun. Shoppers can find furnishings, vintage clothing, jewelry, collectibles, etc. http://www.randolphstreetmarket.com/randolphstreetmarket/index.html

 

DON’T MISS THE NEXT INDIE DESIGNER MARKET (PART OF RANDOLPH STREET MARKET): Saturday, Sept 29, 2012 10am-6pm Sunday, Sept 30, 2012 10am-5pm

The fall/winter digital catalog (in PDF format) will soon be available upon request. (Email anchorbracelets AT gmail DOT com today and include ‘Catalog’ in subject line to request your own copy).

Orders can be placed starting this Saturday, September 29th.

As always, all our jewelry can be customized: You like a bracelet, but need it in a special size? You love a particular style, but would prefer it in a different color/pattern? Never hesitate to contact us so we can help you design your dream bracelet!

Also, the Anchor Bracelet summer collection was such a hit, thanks to the mighty power of word-of-mouth alone and stellar comments and referrals, that we will continue to custom-make them for you all year round.

It’s been a long time coming, but LOL-Laughing Out Loud is out!

Featuring Demi Moore, Miley Cyrus, Ashley Greene, Douglas Booth, Thomas Jane, Marlo Thomas and…Chicago author Delphine Pontvieux, LOL is a fresh coming-of-age story for modern times.

You are invited to Beauty Bar on Wednesday, August 8, to watch the movie with Pontvieux and friends.

drinks 5 to 7 pm
screening of the movie at 7 pm

As always, at Beauty Bar, 10 dollars get you a cocktail and a manicure!

For more information:

1444 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60622

What is LOL about:
In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes, and Facebook, Lola 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, “accidentally” reads her teenage daughter’s racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown.

If you wanted to see Delphine Pontvieux’s debut on the big screen, now is your chance!

LOL-Laughing Out Loud, featuring Demi Moore, Miley Cyrus, Ashley Greene, Douglas Booth, Marlo Thomas and Thomas Jane, to name a few of the actors who were cast in this star-studded motion picture, is out now for the public to see!

Sadly, the movie only had a limited release in the USA (May 4th, 2012), but it’s been out (or about to be) released pretty much everywhere else in the world (see list of international release dates at the end of this post.) And as of today, it s out on DVD ad Blu-Ray! (As well as on Netflix, On Demand, etc…)

We are yet to watch it ourselves (our copy of the DVD is on its way, though), but we’ve been told that the movie director, Lisa Azuelos, had great things to say about Pontvieux’s first time on-screen appearance. You can hear all about it on the movie director’s special commentary, which comes with the DVD!

Get your copy today and help us give this movie the success it rightfully deserves!

The DVD is available everywhere.

Pontvieux will also make a cameo appearance in the TV series “Underemployed” which will debut on MTV in october of this year.

ETA-ESTIMATED TIME OF ARREST has been chosen as a top 20 pick for Father’s day gift books.

With 40 reviews and 4.8 stars on Amazon, and a story packed with action and adventure, this is one book that will grab and keep their attention!

Check the full article on : http://digitalbooktoday.com/

Buy or download ETA-ESTIMATED TIME OF ARREST in hardcover or digital format (for 2.99!) on Amazon today: 

http://www.amazon.com/ETA-Estimated-Arrest-Delphine-Pontvieux/dp/0984217606/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1339793834&sr=8-10&keywords=eta


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!
