I patiently waited (ha!) for the Fed-Ex man to arrive at my doorstep with this cookbook yesterday. At 4:00 p.m. he finally came.
I am coming on 2 years of food blogging next month. Since I started this process I cannot count how many times people have asked if I'm writing a cookbook. Well, up until last month, I hadn't. I submitted several cookbook proposals last summer only to be denied more times than I care to mention. Then I realized I needed to get my butt in gear and write one on my own so friends, family and blogging friends could have it before the holidays came.
Enter in a toddler. a seven month old, a husband, a part-time job, many mouths to feed, laundry to be done and oh did I mention two dogs? I didn't think I would find the time nor the patience to tackle this feat, but I did.
There were times I was sitting at the computer when I should have been tending to a dirty diaper, and times when I'd get all situated only to type out one sentence when some catastrophic event would come crashing down in the little man's room and my writing/editing for that day was shot.
But, in the end I finished it. It's no Paula Deen, Bobby Flay or Rachael Ray production. I didn't have an agent or book editor for that. It is a simple 40-page, full color with photos, cookbook showcasing everything from appetizers to main dishes to desserts.
Since the holidays are now in full force with Halloween past us, here is your chance to purchase or win a copy for yourself, or if you are feeling generous give it to a family member or friend.
If you'd like to purchase, it is available in an iPAD/iPhone version, soft cover and hard cover. You can buy it here. If you purchase before November 30th, enter in the discount code: HOLIDAY to receive 15% off.
I will pick one random winner next Saturday, November 19th, to receive a free soft cover copy! Many ways to enter so get commenting!
