Please pat me on the back for sticking with The Text Isle Patchwork Cookbook.
In July, after a tough-love critique, I went back to the drawing board, and it became the hardest long-term project I’ve ever slogged through. Today it is better than I thought it could be, thanks to the advice of my critiquers, recipe testers, and taters (oops, tasters).
The ebook is in PDF format, so you should be able to read it in any e-reader or from a smartphone, or from your computer if you’ve got a PDF reader installed. I’ll let you all know when the paperback is ready for purchase, and then a Kindle edition will follow.
If you like the free download, please consider making a donation of any amount to Calvary Women’s Services (www.calvaryservices.org). CWS supports homeless women’s basic needs, including job training and skill building. Although I didn’t write this with them in mind, the “cookbooking” process required me to do a lot of my own skill building, so CWS was in my thoughts during the final revision. I admire their work.
The tag line for the cookbook is “Culinary patchwork is the art of quilting with food.”
(Like a proud grandmother, I’m now whipping out photos, so don’t read on if my narcissism has already made you throw up a little.)
I designed different covers for the paperback and ebook editions.
This is on the ebook:
And this is the paperback version:
It was taken by Marissa Rauch, who is an amazing woman in addition to being an incredible photographer. (The photo resolution on my blog does not to justice to how clear and crisp her photos are.)
I feel so happy this evening, but also exhausted and cranky. Adrenalin provides a patchwork of emotions. I hope you will check out the ebook, and the other formats once they come available. Oh, and if you happen to be doing some online shopping at Amazon for Christmas, Hannukah, or whatever wintry holiday you celebrate, please consider my novels FOOD AND WORRY and SIX WORDS.
