Stuff

I am excited because tomorrow I'll receive my personal advance copy of our new book, The Amish Cook at Home.  The book is available, by the way, for preordering now through Amazon.com using this link.  The book is available now through Amazon.com for $10.20 off the $29.99 cover price.  So it's a good deal.  After working on a book like this for so long the thought that I'll finally be able to hold a copy, a real bonafide copy, is exciting!  So once I get it and can dig into it, I'll share more.

SIGH, I hate to even broach this topic again.  But remember the "Amish heaters" we all saw the ads for last winter?  Well, they're baaaaaack.  Now the company marketing them is trying to cloak their offer in some sort of government rebate (its bogus, don't fall for it).  We did hear from people who ordered the heaters and said they worked just fine, but other people felt duped.  Look, it's a perfectly OK ELECTRIC SPACE HEATER from what I have heard.  But it has NOTHING to do with - or at least very, very, very little connection with - the Amish.  It's disturbing that this company is trading off the trust and good name of the Amish to peddle these stupid heaters. Click here for an update.

GOD BLESS YOU

Have you thought about having them in Family Christian Bookstores, Berean Christian Books, etc. ?????

Re: Stuff

I have very little control over where the books are sold...that said, our first cookbook was a popular seller at Family Christian, so I'm sure they'll stock The Amish Cook at Home.

Re: Stuff

Yes, LuvM, we'll "throw together another book" soon:)  A Volume III, though, would be nice and I'm sure is in the not too distant future.  This book isn't a "bigger deal" per se than the first one by Lovina's Mom....customers determine how big of a deal it will be....We can and will have our book out there in most stores, but if people don't buy it then it will all be for naught.....the tough, tough phase, though, for me is just beginning which is PUBLICITY.....The weeks ahead will be full of media interviews and depending on how big and how many....that will play a large role in our sales.....I'll be posting a "media schedule" here soon....

Re: Stuff

I'm sure your book will sell in french.....Do you think you will translate your book in french in a near future??

Re: Stuff

Jamy,

I just got my answer from my editor at Andrews McMeel:  "There are currently no French Canadian publishers interested in The Amish Cook at Home.  That is not to say something might not change in the future".....J`espere! (practicing un peu of my high school French) 

Re: Stuff

Jamy, I've put in a request to my publisher about the book's availability in French...I'll post her answer when she gets back to me - Kevin

Awesome!  I really hope you do make it onto Martha (woot!) sometime, because she obviously needs some education on the Amish!  LOL  I can try to live the experience vicariously through you Smile... another great one would be Rachael Ray!  I am not thinking too big, right?

You know I would love vol 3 whenever it decides to materialize.  Another thing that might be neat... since young Elizabeth has taken her turn at the column several times in the past, I think it would be neat for her to write some in the future when she starts going to the singings, etc.  Just to get a different perspective from the young adult viewpoint.

Yes, just write us another book to anicipate, between the I-DO'S??  No problem, right?  HA HA-  I was wondering where (retail-wise, brick and motar) else the book might be available too.

Re: Stuff

Kjunebug, the cookbook will be available just about anywhere: Barnes & Noble, Borders, Wal-Mart, Costco, and for our friends in Canada: Chapters.

Re: Stuff

As to the 'Amish heaters', here in Michigan their being advertised now, compared to last year, as electric heaters encased in a 'beautiful Amish made mantle' . So my understanding now if you read the ad completely is it's just a hyped up electric heater with a wood mantle box made by Amish craftmens wrapped around it.

As for the cookbook, break a wooden spoon kid...

I am totally excited for the new book's release, also!  Just curious... is this book a "bigger deal", for lack of a better description, than the hardcover one by Elizabeth Coblentz?  Will it be more readily available in a variety of stores?  Just curious Wink.

 Also, I really love my set of the older, spiral-bound Amish Cook cookbooks and "Best of" volumes.  I know they aren't as high-tech as the 2 newer books, but they are still great.  I know they have been a pain in your butt at times, but I really hope one day there will be a volume 3 of "The Best of The Amish Cook".  Through the first 2 volumes, I was able to catch up on the time Elizabeth wrote the column, and I would really love to read Lovina's early columns also.  You know, Kevin... just throw another book together when you have the time  Wink  LOL
