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!

Sneak peek – Be a Superhero in the Kitchen!

Alejandro Chamberlain has been working hard on adding color to his sketches. He so very nicely incorporated my sweet cat, Patrice, into one image. I love her and his drawing of my 1/2 Siamese 1/2 Calico fur ball! 

Alejandro still needs to add color to the cape and the background will possibly be changed to an indoor scene but, other than that, what do you think?


Rough sketches for “Be a Superhero in the Kitchen!”

Alejandro Chamberlain, the illustrator, has created rough sketches to show the layout of elements and characters for Be a Superhero in the Kitchen! He’s incorporated Patrice, my kitty, into a few of the images. I know these are rough drafts but I think the images are adorable. I can’t wait to see them in color with their respected backgrounds.
