So it’s been 2 weeks since The Cookies & Cups Cookbook was released. I feel a little bit like the Mother of the Bride…
Let me explain. In the weeks…months…years… leading up to the release of my book there has always been something to do. Whether it be edits, photos, recipe development, marketing strategies… I’ve had a plan, a to-do list, a deadline!
Now that the book available for you to hold in your hands it’s a mixture of crazy feelings!
Of course there is the relief that it’s out there in the world…a real life thing that you can all buy. But on the other side there is that, “What now?” feeling. So much of my life these past 2 years has been devoted to this book, and now instead of the anticipation of it I am filled with…do they LIKE it? Are people going to BUY it? What do I do NOW? It almost makes me want to dig a hole and bury head until next year. So like a mom, planning her daughter’s wedding…you spend so much time planning and helping and doing and then your daughter gets married and starts her life and you are there with a little bit of a lull. Did that even MAKE SENSE? My book got married?
But can I just tell you that probably my most favorite part of all this “other side” stuff is seeing YOU with the book in your hands (omg keep posting these pictures I am obsessed), reading your reviews of the book (CRAZY great, except for that one lady) AND and seeing what you’re MAKING!
Your pictures from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter… have been SO fantastic!
They have made my heart so full, I can’t even explain to you.
You friends, are outstanding.
What I also am loving is that so you are making SO many of the recipes. My goal when I wrote this book was to create a book that you would bookmark the HECK out of.
And seeing your pictures proves to me I did just that…the variety of recipes being made from The Cookies & Cups Cookbook is FANTASTIC! If everyone was only making the Salty Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, I would know that I failed you.
I want this to be your go-to for recipes you know will be a success. A book where everything looks like a “must make”.
SO KEEP THE PICTURES COMING! Keep emailing me and telling me what you’re making! Keep leaving reviews!
I truly appreciate you.
