Hello from northern Thailand!
I hope you’ve been enjoying our blog posts about our travels in Asia, but before we head out for more adventures in Chiang Mai, I wanted to shoot you a quick note because…drum roll, please…today marks the official release of our cookbook, Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans!
(I’m using the word “official” because—much to my surprise—copies of my book have already been magically popping up in bookstores across North America. Woo hoo!)
It’s been a long road. Henry and I painstakingly pieced this thing together from scratch—from the writing, photography, and recipe testing to the illustrations, cover design, and layout of each page. We even conscripted some underage labor into helping out.
Thankfully, we had the help of our wonderful, life-saving partners at Andrews McMeel, and the unflagging encouragement of our family and friends. Together, we crafted a book that we’re incredibly proud to call our own. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to finally share with you everything that Henry and I poured into the pages of this cookbook.
Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans is packed with stuff—literally. We filled every last page to the very edge of the margins with over 120 recipes and more than 900 step-by-step photographs and cartoon illustrations—not to mention tips, tricks, and even a few off-color jokes. Our aim was to create a fun, engaging cookbook that’s as entertaining as it is useful for you. And now, after years of work, it’s finally here!
This is where you come in…
Now that the book is (hopefully!) in your hands, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do, and that you’ll feel compelled to share your love of our new baby with your friends and family—and random strangers on the street, too!
We would be forever grateful for anything and everything you can do to spread the word about our cookbook, including:
- Rating and posting a short review of our book on sites like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and GoodReads. You will not believe how incredibly valuable your reviews can be—especially for first-time authors like us!
- Telling everyone you know to visit http://book.nomnompaleo.com, where we’ve put up tons of information about the book, including our cartoony book trailer and a free downloadable 50-page preview of our cookbook (available at http://nom.gy/nnpdl)!
- Sharing your thoughts and photos of the book on social media (like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram), and using the hashtag #FOOD4HUMANS so that we can feature your posts on a special site we’ve set up to share the excitement about (and reviews of) our cookbook: http://food4humans.tumblr.com
- Or just shouting from the mountaintops (as loudly and repeatedly as possibly) about how much you love our book! Use a megaphone if you must. If your neighbors and co-workers blow you off and/or call the police, give them copy for the holidays anyway. Sharing is caring!
Oh, and before I forget, for those of you who want an e-book version of Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans, you’re in luck! Our cookbook is available on just about every e-book platform around: Kindle, Nook, Google Play, Kobo, and Apple iBooks.
(I hate to play favorites, but I’m especially in love with the enhanced iBook version of our cookbook for Macs and iPads because of its incredibly smooth, immersive and playful app-like functionality. If you have an iPad or a Mac with iBooks, you must check it out.)
Lastly, thank you so much for all of your support over the years. We appreciate you more than we can express in words.
Michelle, Henry, Owen & Ollie0
