Sales of Volume 1 continue to go really well, and stocks of books in Amazon have been refilled once again, which is really good news as an author. It shows your cookbook is still in quite the demand, and word of mouth from past customers is leading to new purchases. One other recent development is that one can purchase coil bound books from the Among Friends website instead of the default PerfectBound-version. This is in result to many requests for this feature and will enable it to lay flat on one’s counter. Past customers had been bringing their copies to OfficeMax or Staples for them to rebind their books at a cost of $5-8 per book. Our publisher is saying most of the new purchases using Paypal are already going with coil bound edition.
Low Carbing Among Friends Volume 2 has been finalized and will be going to the printers in a couple weeks. You can see an image of the front cover to the left. There are some of the favorite authors from Volume 1, like Maria Emmerich, Jennifer Eloff, and Lisa Marshall, and some new authors too, like Jonathan Eloff and Ginny Larsen of Ginny’s Low Carb Kitchen blog fame. I am looking forward to seeing the recipes this group develops for this volume. They are quite a talented bunch, and I have followed Ginny’s blog for years. You can still pre-order your copy of Volume 2 at a discount for another two weeks here. Volume 2 will feature both the PerfectBound as well as the coil bound edition from the start, so order your copy in your preferred format today before the discount expires.
My next volume that will include my recipes will be Volume 3. I am submitting another 60 recipes for that volume, and with Volume 2 finalized, there is more pressure to get Volume 3 ready as well. I have 95% of my recipes ready, so if you have specific requests for recipes, please speak up now. I should have all recipes ready shortly for publisher review. Thanks again for your support and past (and hopefully future) purchases of this unique low carb, gluten free cookbook.
