Hi everyone, there have been some big changes happening lately, so I want to take a second to bring you up to speed.
After hearing a lot of feedback that you folks were interested in seeing a print copy of Paleo Take Out, I started looking at publishing options for the eBook. After weighing a number of factors, I decided to team up with my publisher, Victory Belt Publishing, and we’ll be releasing a print version of the book instead of the eBook I was initially planning on. Since the majority of the book has already been written, we’re going to slide the book into Victory Belt’s summer release schedule to get it out as soon as possible – so look for it in stores starting this June! That’s ridiculously fast in terms of cookbook releases.
In addition to the Asian-inspired takeout dishes I was originally including, I decided to add another chapter of American restaurant and fast food favorites (mindfully recreated, of course). So in addition to your favorite Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Southeast Asian dishes, you’ll also see some other takeout standards like pizza, burgers, wings, and fried chicken. I feel like it is a natural progression since some of my most enduring recipes have been recreations of restaurant favorites, like my chicken nuggets recipe. It’s shaping up to be ridiculously awesome.
As cool as a print book is, there is also one problem associated with not releasing Paleo Take Out as an eBook – in marketing The Safe Starch Cookbook, I have been promising a $5 discount code for Paleo Take Out on the eBook’s originally scheduled release date of March 1st. But without an eBook, that discount code would be worthless, right? So I wanted to figure out something that could adequately replace that anticipated discount.
What I settled on is to release a sample of Paleo Take Out, featuring 10 recipes that will be in the book plus 5-10 recipes that didn’t make it into the final cut of the print book. So on March 1st I’ll reach out to everyone who has purchased The Safe Starch Cookbook and get them a copy of this new sample eBook, and it will come standard with all purchases of The Safe Starch Cookbook starting March 1st, too. I think that’s totally worth $5.
So you’ll have to forgive me, as I’ll be hunkering down and putting the final touches on the book over the next month, then subjecting myself through a whirlwind editing cycle immediately thereafter – so I may be a little scarce here on the blog for a bit. But it’s for a worthy cause, promise!
Oh, and I have a final title: Paleo Take Out: Restaurant Favorites without the Guilt. I almost have the final cover completed, which I’ll be sure to share soon!
