Focus on Flavour soon to be on Amazon and Kindle…

I’m very excited that my first cookery book Focus on Flavour, Recipes inspired by living in South West France, will soon be available on the Amazon bookstore in printed form and on kindle! It is also already available on the Apple ibook store.

Focus on Flavour

This book was first self-published in 2008 and has been available in printed form through Lulu since. At one time they made it available on Amazon, but then the rules changed and it needed a new revision. So by way of preparation for publishing my NEW 5:2 Healthy Eating for Life book, I thought I would get to grips with the process, working with my existing content.  I have used Amazon’s own Createspace self-publishing resource. I got the final version of the book and cover uploaded on Sunday – the printed copy is already dispatched! I can’t wait to see it! Once I have checked the proof, I will be able to make it available for all. More news as it happens!

The paper of the new Amazon book is a little lighter weight, but the cost is a good deal less. Instead of selling a printed copy at 30€ I will be able to offer it for less than 20€.

As for the kindle version, I am using KDP (Kindle Direct Publishing) and this time, my e-book will be properly formatted to make the most of the e-reading experience.I will know what the e-book costs once I have completed my upload – just working on the boring indexing, cross-referencing and double-triple checking now.

Coming soon!  And then, the 5:2 recipes, which I have been working on all this year 🙂

Caribbean Butternut Squash Soup – 120 calories per serving

As the last of the summer vegetables get turned into ratatouille, my thoughts turn to warming winter soups and stews to see us through more chilly fast days.

One of my favourites is a spicy soup based on pumpkin or butternut squash, full of Caribbean sunshine.
