It’s all said and done.
Finally, after countless hours in my kitchen baking, photographing, writing, editing, pulling my hair out, biting my nails, and cussing just a little, my cookbook – In the sweet of it, is now officially for sale!
A while back I told you that I self-published my own cookbook and there would be more on it later? Well, it’s later.
With that said, let me get the important stuff out-of-the-way. First off, let me start by saying that I am not, nor have I ever, professed to be an Ivy League English major. I am not a copyright editor in any sense of the word, I am a self-taught photographer who probably values my work far more than any professional ever will, I am a modest home baker, and I am a sticker.
By sticker, I mean persistent, determined, and who doesn’t give up easily. Perhaps that is the best quality to have if you ever decide (like I did) to write your own cookbook.
While writing and self-publishing your book sound easy enough, I eventually decided that I must have been bordering on the brink of insanity when I made that decision. That was in the later part of 2010.
Now, nearly two years later, I’m excited to report my book has made it’s debut on Blurb.com, and it can be purchased in print, or as an eBook (iPad, iBook’s format).
I also need to apologize in advance for the price of the printed version of the book. Unfortunately, the cost of printing a book through Blurb.com is ridiculously high. I don’t expect to sell many printed copies. In other words, while self-publishing through Blurb is a nice option, it’s not the most affordable option.
Please visit my bookstore at Blurb.com if you would like to see more of my book, and please note that the slight variation (in the font)between the printed version and the eBook version is the only difference between the two.
Any book publishers out there that want to chat? I’d love to hear from you!
