|Not the cover we'll be using in the end|
So while I was trying to figure out the technical issues to be able to upload it, I got contacted by a publishing company offering me a book deal, and they'll be publishing this book, a print and ebook version, and I'm really excited about this one!
To be honest, I hadn't bothered with even looking for a publishing company, was just going to self publish, since I know how much heartache and heartbreak people have when trying to find agents to represent them, and then trying to find publishing companies to be willing to accept their book, and I had no interest in going through that. But this company contacted me, simply based on my blog (the best resume as a writer is a successful blog!) so I got to do things the official way, without the heartache and headache involved.
I have to finish all the last details for the book within the next month, including getting the professional photography finished (and, of course, that means foraging the ingredients and making the various dishes to be photographed), so I assume I'll be busy busy busy getting that done... but I'm really hoping that this book will be out, in print, by the time the foraging season gets into full gear in the US!
I just had to share the good news!
