Hi All, I made a short video about my cookbook and am thrilled to finally share it with you. It tells both my story and the story of the book — and my normally camera-shy kids and husband even make a few cameos. 😊
Many of you have asked if the book will contain new recipes. The answer is yes! There are 100 recipes in the book: 70 of them are brand new and 30 are favorites from the blog. I’ll be sharing sneak peeks at the table of contents in the coming weeks. Here’s the Breakfast & Brunch page…I hope it makes you hungry!
The book will be released April 3rd and is currently available for pre-order wherever books are sold, including the online retailers below. A huge thank you to all of you who have already pre-ordered. As I’ve mentioned before, pre-ordering is the absolute best thing you can do to support an author (read below to see why), so I’m incredibly grateful! ❤
Cook The Books
In case you missed my pre-order spiel a few months ago, pre-orders can literally make or break the success of a book. Here’s why:
- When you pre-order a book, the sale counts towards the first week’s sales, which typically determine whether a book winds up on the New York Times bestseller list — a possibility that can be huge for any author, especially in terms of writing another book or building her career. (A gal can dream, right?)
- A large number of pre-orders can prompt online vendors, like Amazon, to order more copies of the book before it’s released. Brick and mortar booksellers usually follow suit, and when these booksellers get excited about a book and order lots of copies, they’re more likely to promote it to their customers, placing it in visible locations on the shelves.
- On the production side, if a publisher sees that a book has a lot of pre-orders, they’re likely to increase the print run to meet the anticipated demand. If they increase the print run, they typically increase their marketing efforts to sell all the copies. More marketing = more sales. So as you can see, it’s a snowball effect!
Thank you, as always, for your support. I can’t wait to get this book out into the world and share it with you!
