I include recipes in most of my series. I like to include a sampling of both recipes I have developed over the years as well as recipes contributed by readers. Two years ago I took some of the recipes and created this cozy cookbook which also includes graphics and a short story, and I am toying with creating another one if I can find the time.
If you like to cook I have two opportunities for you. First of all I have a Facebook group which is really a recipe exchange. Here is the link if you want to share recipes, either original or those you found online or in a cookbook, with other readers: https://www.facebook.com/groups/752806778126428/ I do not print recipes shared on this page, as it is for the enjoyment of group members only.
I also accept submissions of original recipes from readers for consideration in self published books. The recipes must be original recipes or recipes modified from a printed recipe to the point that it becomes original. If your recipe is chosen you receive a signed copy of the book, your name in the acknowledgements section of the book, and a $25 Amazon Gift Card. It’s a fun and easy way to see your name in print. Simply email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The recipe should be typed out on a Word document with standard font (New Times Roman or similar.) If you have questions about format just email me.
I’m including a fun fall recipe from the cookbook for you to try and enjoy.
