No proper post this week because I'm in the crunch to finish final edits for my cookbook, Melt: The Art of Macaroni and Cheese. We're going through a paper copy of the book to catch any last edits and check on formatting and design. After that it goes off to print.
Below is a mini-preview of sorts. Hope you enjoy. (And don't judge too harshly as this is my first video.)
If you're a fan of this blog, of cheese, or macaroni, of macaroni and cheese together, or of little 'ol me then I encourage you to also head over to Amazon and please do two things:
1. "Like" the book on Amazon. Really, this helps immensely when it comes to marketing the book. It's shocking how much, in fact. Lots of liking demonstrates a book's popularity in the upcoming market and gets people to pay attention. (A note: sometimes the like button is there and sometimes it is not. No idea why.)
2. Pre-order. If a book has enough pre-orders it can tumble into a second printing before it even releases the first printing. This will also encourage possibilities of foreign language translations of the book and inspires more media outlets who see the numbers to publicize the book, thus encouraging more people to pick the book up and dive into the melty goodness.
Plus, pre-ordering means you'll own a copy! Yayness!
Okee dokee, I'm off to play with my red pen.
