As I have mentioned a few times recently, I’ve been busy working on a new book formatting project that has taken quite a while to get finished. Well, I finally wrapped it up Thursday night, and I’m excited to tell you that we have a new author in the family!
That’s right. In response to so many of your requests over the years, Terry has published over 275 of the most popular recipes from her RV cooking column in the Gypsy Journal in a new e-book titled Miss Terry’s Kitchen, and it’s now available on Amazon!
Among the most requested recipes in the cookbook are her famous cinnamon rolls, several of her breads, her pizza recipes, her marinated pork tenderloin, and her shredded beef for tacos and burritos. But that’s just a small sample. She’s been busy!
I announced the new book about 1 p.m. yesterday and before midnight it had climbed to #6,457 Paid in the Amazon Kindle Store and #3 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Cookbooks, Food & Wine > Meals. In the next few days I plan to reformat and upload the book to Barnes & Noble for Nook readers, and we’ll be bringing out a printed version too, but that takes a while longer.
While formatting a cookbook e-book is quite different from the other books I’ve done on Amazon, the hardest part of this project has been convincing Miss Terry that enough of you want her book to make it worthwhile. I bet she’ll be convinced when she sees the numbers! Thanks to all of you who have been urging Terry to do this for so long. And Terry, I’m very, very proud of you!
And now I have to get back to work on my next Big Lake book. I have to keep up with the live in competition!
Bad weather has hit Arizona, with rain here in the desert and high winds and snow in the high country. The full brunt of the storm is supposed to be here later today and it will start clearing out by Sunday. I’m glad we don’t have to be anywhere, and since we set our own schedule and work here in our home on wheels, we don’t even have to complain about our weekend being ruined like those folks who work traditional 9 to 5 jobs.
