Book Updates, Giveaways, and Last Day for E-Book SalePosted: September 15, 2013
It has been a little more than a month since We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook released. What an exciting month it has been! We wanted to update you on our book launch adventures and make sure you didn’t miss out on anything–giveaways, interviews and articles, and the ebook sale.
Ebook Sale Ends TODAY–get it for $2.99!
This sale launched us to the number one spot in our category (Gastronomy Essays) for ebooks and the #2 spot for all books in that category. Seeing our book surpass Anthony Bourdain’s, even if just for a few days, was thrilling! Thank you Zondervan for including our book in your ebook sale! (Update–as of Monday 9/16, the price is still at $2.99. We aren’t sure when it will end, so snatch it up before the price goes back up.)
In the News
Becky was interviewed on Chicago’s Moody Radio station last month. Listen to the interview here.
Becky & Rachel have a feature story in the September issue of Guideposts Magazine. Here’s the online link.
We each have an article on BeliefNet.com. Rachel wrote one on Raising Vegetarian (or Other Special Eaters) in a Meat-Lovers World. Becky wrote Make Every Meal Holy. We’d love you to check these out and share them with others if they resonate with you!
Rachel wrote a back-to-school blog for WeAreTeachers.com on starting a Teacher Lunch Club. Welcome to all our new teacher friends on the blog! We are so glad you are here. Teachers have a special place in our hearts!
It looks like we will have our first television interview for the book next week on D The Broadcast, unless something changes. You never know in the world of tv–Becky was once bumped from a segment to interview a cat who dialed 911!
Though we’ve been a little quieter on the blog here, we’re still writing…not only are we working on our next book (manuscript due in November, in stores January 2015), but we’ve been busy writing guest posts for some of our other favorite bloggers. Rachel wrote a post for The Gourmet Housewife on how the book idea and blog formed from her desire to be able to stay at home with her son. And she wrote about the hilarious time Jared made her a special breakfast concoction–cinnamon eggs—as newlyweds over at Candice Calvert’s Author’s Galley: Manuscripts & Wooden Spoons. Becky did a fun S’more recipe and post for Doughmestic.
Rachel just added her speaking topics to the blog and she has had a great response—calendar is filling up! If you live near Dallas, Texas, and are looking for a speaker for your MOPS group, ladies retreat, or health event, check out her new speaker page and contact her soon to book her for your event.
Several bloggers have done giveaways of We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook. A Big Shout Out to Wendy’s Bloggers for reviewing the book, posting pictures about the recipes you’ve made, and hosting giveaways. As food bloggers, we know a lot of work goes into those posts. Bless you! Also thank you to Michele Cushatt for hosting a special giveaway of not only a copy of the book, but also a homemade batch of your chocolate chip cookies featured in Chapter 12! That was one lucky winner!
