We had a great turnout yesterday at Marion Kroger. I met a lot of new people and saw some familiar faces as well. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to snap everyone’s photo. However, I hope to see the ones I missed online in a book selfie.
Again, my apologies for those not pictured above. If I see your book selfie, I’ll happily add it to this post. 🙂 Oh and if you missed the event and would like to purchase a signed copy, you can do so by clicking on this link… Purchase Links.
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!!)
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 Kitchenwon’t officially be released until March3, 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!
The design team at Mascot Books is still hard at work getting the book ready for publication. I can’t wait to see the final product. When I can, I will share a sample page from Be a Superhero in the Kitchen! For now though, please enjoy these two sample images by Alejandro Chamberlain (illustrator).
Today, I’ll be sharing the final drawings sent in from a local school. For privacy issues, I won’t disclose the school or teacher’s name but I want to thank one special 4th grade teacher and her students for their support. You know who you are and you all are amazing!
Today’s local artist is Colton (9) who created not one but two superhero drawings for me.
Thank you so much, young man!
