U.S. Cookbook Cover Reveal + Mini Book Q & A

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on November 24, 2013

bookcover

Today, I’m excited to reveal the U.S. cover of my cookbook at long last! Many of you have already come across this cover on Amazon.com as it’s been up there for a while now, but of course, I wanted to reveal it on the blog too. I found this gorgeous bunch of rainbow carrots at a local market earlier this year and I was dying to take photos of it. At the time, I had no idea this carrot photo would be selected for the cover – or turn into one of my favourite side dish recipes in the book. I can’t wait for you to see the “after” photo and recipe inside the book. I may or may not have inhaled the entire pan shortly after the photo shoot. Well, that applies to pretty much every recipe. Anyway, I love how vibrant and unique this cover is and I think it’s going to really pop off the shelf.

Why two covers?

Some of you asked why we have two different covers, so I thought I’d take a moment to explain the process today. I’m lucky to have two publishers behind this book. My Canadian publisher, Penguin, and my American publisher, Avery (which is an imprint of The Penguin Group), had different visions for my cover which is why we have two. Penguin really wanted to showcase one of my recipe photos on the cover as you saw a few weeks ago, while Avery wanted something more abstract which would emphasize my focus on using whole food, plant-based ingredients. The Canadian cover is found on Amazon.ca and the American cover is on Amazon.com.

Overseas Availability?

I’ve also had some of you ask when the book will be available outside of North America. My publisher is currently in the process of trying to sell the rights to the book overseas, so hopefully I will have good news to report in the coming months. I don’t know if and when that might be though, but I will keep  you posted! Amazon does ship to other countries, so that is always an option too.

Here is a sneak peak of the table of contents:

  • Introduction {my story}
  • About this book
  • My natural foods pantry {details my most commonly used ingredients}
  • My favorite kitchen tools & equipment
  • Breakfast
  • Smoothies, juices, & tea
  • Appetizers
  • Salads
  • Soup
  • Entrées
  • Sides
  • Power snacks
  • Desserts
  • Homemade staples
  • Basic cooking chart
  • Acknowledgments
  • Index
  • About the Author

 

Pre-orders:

Many of you have told me that you pre-ordered the book and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you. Pre-orders are a big deal in the publishing world because all of the pre-orders count toward the first week of book sales (that is, the release week), increasing an author’s chances of getting on a best seller list. Pre-orders also help publishers predict what kind of numbers to expect during the initial release and help sell the book to other retailers. So in other words, your pre-orders make a huge impact and I greatly appreciate each and every one of you who have taken the time to do so! 

For all the pre-ordering info, see here.

Ok, if you have made it this far, bless your soul. Enough book talk.

Can we talk a bit about the holidays? I’m having a hard time grasping that it’s nearing the end of November. This year has flown by. Is anyone doing any holiday meal planning? I’m toying with the idea of creating a 3-course vegan holiday menu, step-by-step, featuring some old and some new recipes. A complete holiday menu, vegan styles. I’m thinking a salad to start, 1 main, 2 sides, and a dessert, all holiday themed of course. Many dishes made the day before. Would this be useful? Am I insane? Let me know. :)

I read about your blog on the HappyHealthyLongLife blog and began making many of your recipes last summer. They always turn out great. I’ve never been disappointed. You’ve really helped my husband and me transition to a whole foods, plant-based diet. I just preordered the U.S. version and can’t wait until March. Thanks for your passion for healthy eating. I look forward to the holiday menu.

I’m going to ask my husband to get this for our second anniversary, since it releases on that day! I would also love a vegan holiday menu, as I’m using some of your recipes for our first veg Thanksgiving.

Y.E.S. Yes. To everything everyone has said. I’m so excited for your book- just pre-ordered. Now the hardest part…waiting ’til march! But something tells me you’ll have plenty of good stuff to keep us satiated until then. Thanks for sharing so much with everyone on OhSheGlows. Your recipes are always fantastic and they inspire a whole lot more. Hope you have a great holiday and congrats! <3

I live in Sweden and I can see your book on my favourite swedish online book store already :) Maybe they have a deal with Amazon though.. I will definately be pre-ordering your book! As soon as it’s out, I will have it here :)

My boyfriend and I totally adore your recipes. He calls himself “80% vegan” and your recipes has made my veganism so much easier for him (and me)! I’ve never tasted anything that wasn’t delicious from you.

I just read the e mail regarding your new cookbook and looked at the table of contents. I saw favorite kitchen tools and right away I imagined that you would list such things as food processor, etc., but probably will not say exactly what make, size and so on. I find this happens a lot. I know this sounds CRAZY, but if I did not have a computer I would have bought a food processor years ago, but I read reviews and cannot make up my mind. Would love the Breville sous chef, but WAY to large. Help – can anyone recommend a great BPA free food processor, make, size and so on?

I just ordered two copies (one for me, one for a gift) and I can’t wait for March to come!! Yay for your cookbook!!!

Hi Angela,
I have seen the book as one of the first results of a search on Amazon.it (I live in Italy) – it was available to pre-order for Kindle, but I want the REAL one, because the photos are too amazing for kindle. So I’ve put it on my wish list and will patiently wait… It’s literally the only cookbook I’ve ever been interested in, you use so many easy and easy-to-find ingredients, rather than a million obscure components to the recipes, and the results are exceptional!
Keep up the good (inspiring) work:-)
Chiara

I’m in Australia and I’ve just sussed out Amazon – it says your book is available for pre-order as a Kindle book. YAH!! So excited! Though I do love to drool over an actual physical book, I’ll take what I can get until it becomes available here! At least we can still see the yummy pics and recipes :-) :-)

Thanks Angela for sharing your love of food with us. You’re awesome :-)

I wish your cookbook was coming out for Christmas, so I could ask for Santa for it for Christmas! I adore cookbooks, almost as much as I like to cook and bake ( it’s an obsession!) I am looking forward to cooking Christmas dinner with my family, however I have found out that I may be allergic to dairy products and was wondering if you could do a segment of traditional Christmas dishes that are vegan? That would be awesome!
