Tales of the Cookbook VI

What I know:

1. I will be self-publishing. I came to this realization quite some time ago and I am quite comfortable with it. I mean, “The Martian” by Andy Weir, “50 Shades of Grey” by E.L. James and “Eragon” by Christopher Paolini were all self-published books.

2. I have decided to do the initial release as an ebook. It will convey great information and be easily accessible. You can read the book on your ebook or if you don’t have an ebook you can use your tablet or smartphone. You can use an app. For example, you can download the Kindle app to your tablet or smart phone and access the book that way.

3. I have given myself a 1st quarter of 2019 deadline. Without this I will just keep tweaking forever. At some point you just have to let your baby go and hope you did a good job, right? So that is what I’m going to do.

With all that being said. I am going to take a little blogging break. I plan to use the next couple of months to really finalize everything. No distractions… except my children… who I think are only in school for 8 days the whole month of February, maybe 12 in March. But other than that it’s Garlic & Olive Oil the cookbook all the time.

I’ll still post pics on Instagram and Facebook of my cooking and baking adventures. I mean, we still gotta eat. So make sure you are following me there. But the blog will slow down for a bit. Wishing you all a happy couple of months and I’ll hopefully be back soon with some exciting news!

Mangia! Mangia!
