An update on my book Cooking With Beer – it is in short supply unfortunately because the whole run was ordered up. In fact the initial print run of 15 000 books has gone because a total of 28 000 books have been sold/ordered around the world. The publisher is already doing a reprint to cover orders for Australia and England!!!! Pretty good if you ask me!
The only down side is that a lot of book stores I have popped in to see if they have my book dont have it or only have one or two copies. This is good as they have sold all the rest but it is not so good that in the week leading to Fathers day which should be a high sales week we dont have the book out there to be sold! Obviously we would all like to sell 100 000 copies and more but first you have to have them on the shelf. The sales figures are great and all the more encouraging that the book should push on into Xmas with strong sales!
As for other things – life goes on!
I am between gigs and staying positive. It has been a little quiet which I havent minded but dont want the quiet to linger too long. I have book PR commitments coming up and some nice cooking demo stuff coming up also.
The best thing coming up is roast pork day!!!! Yes it was local market day today and I went down first thing to get another piece of the free range pork that I have cooked badly the last two times. It sits in my freezer taunting me – I can hear it now saying cook me if you dare – well I am going to cook you you darn piece of free range pork but I am not, repeat am not going to overcook you like I did your poor siblings!
Wish me luck.
