All parents know the struggle of feeding a picky eater. Some evenings feel like war. Nerves are frayed, and a nice, peaceful dinner can swiftly be bursting with tears, tantrums, and occasionally, a battle of wills. It is my goal that this book tips the scales in our favor. I’ve learned that one reliable way to get my picky eaters to eat is to allow them to help make the meal. After all, food tastes better when you have helped create it. Allow your kid to try their hand with the recipes in this book. A kid who becomes the superhero of suppertime is one who eats super well.

(I’ll be sharing more purchase links as they become available!!)

Tentative release date.

I woke up this morning hoping and expecting ALL good news from Chris (Mascot Books’ marketing team). There was some. He did say the marketing team will be reaching out to bloggers to gain some feedback and buzz about the book. I like that. 

Unfortunately, it didn’t take long before my expression became this…..

 

Chris informed me Be a Superhero in the Kitchen won’t officially be released until March 3, 2020. Sure, it’ll be up at Amazon, B&N, and other places in February for preorders but buyers won’t have hardcovers until March. 

When I signed the book contract (December 2018),  I was under the impression it would released by Christmas 2019. Just sucks…. Simple as that. 

Chris (Mascot Books) did say he would see if the release date could be moved up but I’m not holding my breath it will be.

To all the little kitchen superheroes and their sidekicks, sorry for the delay and thank you for your patience. 

 

Tentative release date: March 3rd, 2020
Preorder links coming soon!

 

Off to the printers!

I’ve officially signed off on the latest PDF of Be a Superhero in the Kitchen. That means, soon I will be able to share preorder links and it’s official release date.

The marketing team will also be in contact with me to arrange book signings. Dates, times, and locations will be posted here, on Twitter and on Instagram.

Stay tuned for more details and (hopefully) see ya soon!

Cover Reveal!

Exciting news! I got the PDF of Be a Superhero in the Kitchen. I’m currently reviewing it, making adjustments, before I send my notes back to my editor.

As a whole, I love the book. Alejandro Chamberlain did a fantastic job on the artwork!

I don’t have a definite release date yet but when I know more you’ll know. Until then, I’d love your feedback on the cover.

Thanks,
Donna
