Hey! I Saw My New Book At the Store!

While my dad was here we went to the local Barnes and Noble, and they had my new book, The Every Calorie Counts Cookbook! It's always a thrill to actually sitting there on the bookstore shelves, you know?

So if you want a copy right this very second, you could run out to your local Barnes and Noble and get one. Or you could just put in an order at Amazon.com, who I assume will have it very soon.

I've Got My Author Copies!

I've received my "author copies" (25 free copies) of my new book, The Every Calorie Counts Cookbook. It's so odd - you live with those words for months, till you can practically recite them in your sleep. You cook recipe after recipe. You arrange everything into a book. You'd think that there'd be no big surprise, seeing it in book form. Yet it's always a kick.

Anyway, my publisher assures me that The Every Calorie Counts Cookbook will be in bookstores within a couple of weeks time! The back cover reads:

Good Carbs. Good Fats. Good Food!

Are you counting carbs? Are you counting calories? Or are you just plain trying to eat healthy? This is the cookbook for you!

Millions of people have discovered that being careful about carbohydrates is their key to weight loss and vitality. Yet often low carb dieters assume they can eat unlimited calories. Other folks count calories with success, but find that they're hungry, or have nasty blood sugar crashes that bring irritability, cravings, and fatigue.

It's time for low carbers and calorie counters to take a page out of each other's books! Calorie counters need to discover the joys of never feeling hungry, and of losing those crashes. Low carbers need to keep a gentle eye on calories.

That's not all! Your body needs vitamins and minerals, too. (Oh, yeah. Them!) Quite simply, we all need to eat food that's both healthy and delicious, that keeps us full, and makes us feel and look fabulous. And since we're all seriously busy, it sure would help if it wasn't a pain to cook!

Here you go! Five hundred recipes, from family suppers to party fare. Plenty of protein, a harvest of fruits and vegetables, the good fats you need for vibrant health. Great whole grain flavor without the high blood sugar impact. And every recipe has the carbs, calories, fiber, fat and protein counts worked out - plus a vitamin and mineral breakdown! You'll know you're getting what you need.

Try:

Chile Verde Cheese Burgers * Crab Fritters with Lemon Aioli * Skillet Buttermilk Cornbread * Grilled Asparagus with Wasabi Mayonnaise * Apple and Wild Rice Salad * Blinky's Texas Red * Tequila-Lime Chicken Skillet * Sizzling Moroccan Shrimp * Ginger-Melon Frappe * Plum Sorbet * Chocolate Velvet * Better-Than-Whole-Grain Pancakes

And much more!

So grab this book, and make Every Calorie Count!

Pre-order at Amazon.com and they'll ship it to you as soon as it comes in!
