Early in April we were contacted by Herald Press. (click on this link for their press release).
They wondered if we had ever considered writing a cookbook.
OH ..yes . .we had.
When we began the blog we decided that it would be a publisher contacting us instead of us finding them.
We knew that in due time. .
it would happen.. .
and it did.
Conference telephone calls with the Publisher. .
many many emails between the "girls". .
and the project which we have been working on behind the scenes began.
Our spring and summer flew by.
We selected recipes. .
we baked and tweaked and cooked . . .
and enlisted our friends and family to help us eat our test products.
We developed concepts of colors and decided on a theme.
We watched the weather for perfect photography skies.
And then. .
we planned a party to sign our contract.
On September 1st with our photographer to witness the event. .
we all signed our names on the book contract with the publisher.
After the contract was signed we enjoyed a photography session as a group for the cookbook and spent the day celebrating.
Our efforts are now safely in the hands of capable editors and design teams.
It is a joy to be able to have a purpose that is greater than ourselves.
Our dream to feed some hungry children with the proceeds will be realized.
We humbly thank each of you for your generous encouragement.
Your comments and emails are valued and appreciated so much.
