Today’s the day! My third cookbook is officially published. If you preordered Good Cheap Eats: Everyday Dinners and Fantastic Feasts for $10 or Less, THANK YOU! I hope you’ve already got it in your hot little hands.

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support. It means so much to me that you trust me with your family’s meals. I think that’s a big deal. I don’t take it lightly.

I hope that the past five years of Good Cheap Eats (the blog) have been a help to you in the kitchen. May Good Cheap Eats (the book) be a continuation of that.

May there be more and more good cheap eats (the dishes) in our future.

If you’re so inclined to help out with this book launch, I would be forever grateful. I’ve tried to find that fine line of sharing the book often enough so that folks know about it and how to get it, without being overly aggressive or worse, annoying.

But, honestly, it’s so much better when a lot of people with real experience with something are talking about it; folks tend to tune out the same voice — especially if it’s the author.

Would you share Good Cheap Eats?

If you’d like to help promote Good Cheap Eats (the book or the blog, for that matter), here’s what you can do:

Buy the book. My cookbooks are available at AmazonB& and indie booksellers.

Write an honest review. Review can be so helpful to someone trying to find a good fit. Would you write an honest review on Amazon?

Request that your library buy the book. Libraries are always looking for good suggestions. I was never so thrilled as when my own library had seven copies in their possession! That means that the love and learning can be spread exponentially. Ask your library to purchase it so that your community can benefit from it — and you can borrow their copy if you don’t have the budget to buy it yourself.

Gift the book. It’s always so fun to hear from folks who received my other books as gifts. My sweet friend Tami has given away something like 17 copies of my cookbooks. Now, that’s love! Perhaps you have a friend who might enjoy a copy of his or her own.

Tell your friends about it. I’d love it if you would share about the book in person or on social media. If you post about the book on Facebook, twitterinstagram or google plus, feel free to tag me or use the hashtag #goodcheapeats (Use #nymfreezer for the freezer book and #juicesforkids for my juicing book.)

Invite me to your moms group. I’ve done a number of speaking engagements over the past year, talking about freezer cooking, meal planning, and now how to make sugar-free, healthy drinks for kids. I’d love to come share with your group, too. Drop me a note if you’re in Southern California and we’ll set something up.

Take a picture! Next week I’ll be telling you about a very fun photo opp that I hope you’ll participate in. If you missed one of the pre-order bonus features, you’ll definitely want to join in the fun. Ahem.

Write a post. If you have a blog, I’d be honored if you’d share my book with your readers. Leave the link in the comments section below and I’ll add it to this post for all to see. 🙂

Thanks for your support! I can’t tell you what a blessing it is.

(We found out late last week that the kindle deliveries will be delayed by a week. I’m so sorry to hear that! The distributor is in charge of that. Unfortunately, it’s out of my hands, else I would whip them into shape. 😉 )

    I miss the days when amazon would send a pre-ordered book to be delivered ON release day…can’t wait for my copy to arrive!

    • I’m a bit happy to hear they no longer do that, ONLY because I ordered one from a local bookstore, so I thought others were getting theirs before me! But sorry Amazon doesn’t do that anymore. 🙂

    • My 3 copies I pre ordered from Amazon arrived today. One is mine, one is for my DIL’s birthday in a few weeks(great timing!!) and the 3rd is for my sister for Christmas 😉
      I don’t have much time to check it out today sadly 🙁 but will be spending time with it tomorrow!

    • Charyse H. says:

      They do it only for Amazon prime members.

  2. I sure did mention it on my blog and share on FB.
    Love love love.

    Blessings lady. I hope it sells really well.

  3. I guess I’ll have to be a little more patient and wait for the Kindle release on the 15th. I can’t wait see what great recipes you have in the new book.

  4. So that’s why I have a pick up slip at the post office. I’ll have to have my hubby stop by after work tomorrow. 🙂

  5. Amazon says it’s to be delivered today, yippee!;)

  6. Jennifer Blacker says:

    Mine is set to be delivered today. Can’t wait to snuggle in tonight after work and read it.

  7. Congratulations Jessica!
    Love you blog and your other books – can’t wait to dig into this1
    This crazy back to school time of year has been so much easier with all of you recipes and suggestions – my family is eating so much better and I am not stressed out every afternoon at work wondering what I am going to feed my hubs and my two boys, 10 and 16.
    Wishing you only the best on your book launch – Ilene

  8. Congratulations!! Mine is on its way, and I can’t wait to check it out. Based on your other books and the info on this blog, I’m expecting terrific (and delicious) inspiration.

  9. I bought your book for my stepdaughter as a Christmas gift. She is in nursing school at the University of South Carolina and loves to cook. I purchased the book on Amazon and hope it arrives soon for me to take a peek!

    I have been following your blog for a few years now and I really enjoy it even though all my kids are grown! The last two are in college now.

    Thanks for all you do!

  11. Got online to reserve a copy at my library and there is already a wait list – I was 4th in line! I think they bought 3 copies

  12. Hi Jessica! Just received your wonderful cookbook at the door. I am getting ready to sit down and look at it but wanted to let you know how excited I am to have received it. What a wonderful birthday! Thank you!

  13. Monika Wells says:

    I went to get your cookbook on my nook on tuesday the 9th and it wasn’t there it says the 23rd now ;o( On a dif note I’m excited to get the book! Also I had purchased a copy of your other book on my nook awhile ago some of the ingredients where listed are like blacked out and I can not see like how much flour or such to put in, do you have any idea why or has that happened to anyone else? Its going to be hard to try and make those recipes where I cant see the right amounts of ingredients.

  14. Jenni Stricklin says:

    I received my book in the mail today. I am so excited to do a little testing this weekend. The book looks great, pictures crisp, just beautiful work Jessica. Enjoy your vacation, you definitely earned it!
