Cookbook Jitters

I first heard on Sunday. Amazon had copies of my book in stock and would be shipping them this week. I thought they wouldn’t start arriving until Friday, but this morning, a few friends got in touch to say that they’d gotten their copies today.

And then, when I checked my own mail, I found one waiting for me there (because I am a goofball, I ordered myself a copy through Amazon. I wanted the experience of having it appear in that familiar box).

I don’t entirely know how to articulate how this all feels. I’m thrilled, nervous and entirely freaked out. All I can say is that I hope you guys like it and that it finds a comfortable place in your kitchens.

    Hi Marissa. Received my book yesterday. It’s everything I expected and more. I love your blog and your book reads just like it. Friendly, fun and informative. Like sitting down with a dear friend. A very creative friend. My daughter is just starting to explore the preserving world and I turned her onto your blog. She’s a very big fan already. She plans on making your Lemon Curd as her first adventure. I bought her a copy of your book also and I look forward to spending time with her dreaming over your recipes, then sharing samples with each other. Thank you for a great book.

    Crazy that the e-book version isn’t available until the 22nd, but you can get the hardcover version now. :( I’m bummed I have to wait! I did get to see a friend’s copy yesterday, and I can’t wait to get my own.
