Gotta do something when you quit going to church, right? I've been involved in local political stuff. This is particularly amusing because I am a Democrat living in one of the very most Republican parishes / counties in the country, rated by the daily caller as #31 in the top places to live if you are a conservative.
The women's club made a cookbook. ALL PROFITS, ALL PROFITS, ALL PROFITS will go to established non-profit organizations who feed hungry people in St. Tammany Parish - Second Harvest, Mt. Olive AME Feeding Mission, Covington Food Bank, Angel Food, etc. After we pay for printing (this is print on demand, so no minimum) and taxes (we are not an NPO) that will be be $12/book. I would like to sell 5000 books. The lead author wants to be on The Daily Show. I think my goal is more reachable.
This is not a normal "let's make a cookbook!" cookbook. The lead writer has a monthly humor column in New Orleans Magazine and has three books published. The book designer is a professional who does books for places like the MoMA in NY. My involvement was mostly reading reading reading and editing editing editing recipes, but at the last moment I was drafted/volunteered to write the section introductions. We are still working on getting "peek inside" and stuff on the Amazon page. We had zero budget, so there are no pictures, but it's still a BEAUTIFUL book.
The cookbook is for sale on Amazon right now. Here is the link:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0972396853
It is $20. We are self-publishing.
Go buy a book, please. Thank you!
