No, not the poltergeist, but the books! My books! After laboriously dragging each 50-pound carton in through the front door, it felt so surreal to slice open the packing tape and see the fresh print staring back at me. Those same photos and words that I sweated over, painstakingly tweaked and fine-tuned for what seemed like a lifetime… Well, it all hasn’t quite sunken in yet, but it is completely thrilling. The delivery of those heavy texts is easily the most rewarding part of the process thus far, hopefully to be trumped still by happy bakers and satisfied sweet tooths (fingers crossed!)
This means that if you’ve pre-ordered, I am so grateful for your support, and your copy should be arriving on your doorstep shortly! Please, let me know what you think- Drop me a line, or consider leaving a review on Amazon.
And like most cookbooks and books in general, errors and omissions have already been spotted. Nothing major, not to worry, but I’ve started up an errata page to keep anything straight. If you should spot anything else out of place, don’t hesitate to say so.
In book-related events, if you happen to be in the New York area this weekend and want a signed book or some fabulous baked goods for a good cause, do not pass go, do not collect $100, but head straight to MooShoes on May 1st. Come celebrate both the release of Vegan Desserts and the World Wide Vegan Bake Sale. There will be tons of incredible sweet treats, in addition to a few selections from my book, so you can quite literally get a taste of the recipes within.
In case you can’t make it, the following Saturday, May 7th, I’ll be signing books and handing out samples at the Barnes and Noble in Westport, CT, starting at 1:00.
Coming right up after that on Sunday, May 15, you can find me hanging out at the Veggie Pride Parade in NYC, doing something similar yet again. So come, dress up like a carrot, and get yourself a book!
Many more opportunities to meet me and eat free food will be scheduled in soon, so stay tuned! And of course, Happy Baking!
