I’m completely blown away! My cookbook Fuss-Free Vegan has been ordered for a THIRD printing and it’s only been 7 months since it’s release.
When writing my book, I knew there was no way my cookbook would be an instant bestseller or anything like that. I just don’t have a mega following like some other vegan influencers out there. But I also knew that there was something missing from the world of vegan cookbooks, and that was a book full of easy to make, familiar, non-scary vegan recipes that used easy-to-find ingredients.
I knew this because I think I own almost every vegan cookbook out there, and call me lazy, but the recipes I found required expensive health food store ingredients. I didn’t want to have to make an extra trip to a special store just to get a weird flour I will likely never use again, and to make a dish that I’m not even really excited about. Or to make a dish that did seem familiar but was overly complicated. Why can’t vegan cooking be easy?
So setting out to write this cookbook, I knew it wasn’t going to be an instant success, but I thought that if I wrote the best damn cookbook I could- testing recipes over and over again to make them as easy and fool-proof as possible, using only ingredients I could find at my local grocery store, and creating vegan versions of all of my favourite dishes- that I would at least end up with a book I knew I would want in my kitchen. And maybe if I wanted that cookbook, other people would want it to.
Well, it turns out, that’s just what happened. Fuss-Free Vegan wasn’t an instant bestseller as predicted, but I think it’s in it for the long run. 3rd printing and now there are well over 150, 5-star reviews on amazon.com! People are excited about Fuss-Free Vegan, and I couldn’t be happier. I’m seriously blown away, and so thankful. 🙂
I can’t even begin to tell you how satisfying it is to work so insanely hard at something and to see that work pay off. The best part of all for me is all of the comments and reviews I have read and received from you. My recipes have made it just a little bit easier and more delicious to cook vegan food, and everyone is devouring the dishes, whether they are vegan or not.
