The Kentucky Fresh Cookbookfiles were sent to the printer today. Said files are now in the hands of capable professionals (in Michigan no less) who turn words and images into a beautiful bound books. I think I’ll die when I see a copy of the book in April. In the mean time I’m not sitting around twiddling my thumbs. Instead I’m scheduling book signings, events, and promotions so I can get “out there” and talk about, cook from, and discuss the book. In the end I hope The Kentucky Fresh Cookbook makes better fresh home cooks out of us all. If you would like for me to come to an event near you, please let me know.
I’ll kick off my promotion with the following events:

Kentucky Writers Conference
You Can Write A Cookbook: Essential Ingredients For Success
Bowling Green, Kentucky
Speaking of cookbooks: Cookbook circulation in libraries is at an all time high and last year print cookbook sales were up 9% more than any other genre of print books (except entertaining.) There’s never been a better time to write a book of your own. Very soon I plan to officially announce a series of teleclasses on writing cookbooks. If you dream of writing a cookbook stay tuned for more information about this exciting opportunity. I’ll draw upon my experiences as a cookbook reader, editor, and author to guide would-be cookbook authors through essential ingredients for a successful cookbook.
