    The inspiration for Amber C. Jones' first book was under her nose. It was the smells of New York City -- the pizza, the bagels, the pastrami and the garbage.     

    Jones tells Newsday she decided to write a scratch-and-sniff guide to New York City featuring the city's signature smells.     

    Her self-published book is called New York, Phew York.

    The 20-scent, 40-page children's book could be available as soon as the holiday season. The self-published book will cost $34.     

    The 36-year-old Jones lives in Brooklyn and works as a Manhattan hotel concierge.     

    She and her business partner Jennifer Lamirata said they've worked tirelessly for a year to bring "New York, Phew York'' to print.     

    They said the scratch-and-sniff feature made the book too expensive for most traditional publishers.
