Earlier this week, I received in the mail the first advance copy of The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur! I am pleased to say the printed book turned out beautifully and I can’t wait for you guys to see it in person!
Now that the release date is quickly approaching, I’d like to announce that I will be selling signed copies of the book on the blog, starting next month! If you haven’t purchased yours yet, check back soon for more info, and to order directly from me!
If you’re in the Milwaukee/Chicago area, check the facebook page for upcoming events where you can get copies of the book.
And if you’re in Milwaukee, I can get your copy to you in person!
I took a video when I opened the package! Check it.
Speaking of events, I’m psyched to announce that I will be one of the featured chefs at Chicago VeganMania 2010 on October 9th, and doing a baking demo! I’m extremely honored and excited to be working alongside some amazing, accomplished people in the vegan community! If you’re near Chicago, or plan on visiting in October, you don’t want to miss this event! There will be chefs doing demos, dancers, musicians, workshops, vendors, local and national businesses, and a lineup of phenomenal speakers! Not to mention it’s free!
There is also an after party planned.
