Here she is, folks!
My new book.
I have three books on submission, a collection of essays that's been rejected a couple of times, plus the rejection of Field Notes 2 and the Field Notes cookbook a few years ago.
What's a girl to do but take matters into her own hands and put out her own book?
This is one way to take control of my creative life, my work and my goals, and reconnect with my loyal readers again.
If you enjoyed Field Notes, you'll enjoy the 15 stories (essays) in this book. Same style, same humour, same cast of characters.
Along with the stories about food are 40 of my favourite recipes. Including the famous oat cakes! I also added black and white photos, and I think they are delightful.
If I'm honest, I think this book is delightful! I'm very pleased with how it turned out.
This book represents three months of intense work -- and it is worth every hour and every dollar. Let me tell you, I have a new appreciation for what goes into creating a book and getting it out to the public; I think I quashed my mother's dream of starting a publishing company.
I was writer, photographer, editor, transcriber, proofreader -- with an assist from Mother -- typesetter, formatter... and now the entire marketing and promotions department!
I really enjoyed making A Jewell of a Cookbook and I hope you enjoy reading it.
You get a quality product for $20.
For those of you who live near me, I'll happily deliver - it will be great to see you again.
Otherwise, the cost includes postage. (However, if going to England, postage is $20 because the book weighs over 200g.)
I'm taking payment by cash, cheque or e-transfer.
I'm not keen to put certain information on the blog, as I'm sure you understand, so please email me using the "CONTACT ME" link in the top right hand corner (note: that email is not the one to use for the e-transfer) and we'll work out the details.
As soon as I receive payment, I'll put A Jewell of a Cookbook in the mail.
Thank you in advance for your support. It's truly appreciated. xo
