A few years ago, one of my fellow Oak Tree Press authors, Ilene Schneider, suggested we do an author’s cookbook and feature recipes from our books. We got it started and somewhere along the way, it got side-lined. Just recently, Ilene and authors Lorna Collins and Mary Montague Sikes decided to grab the bull by the horns and make sure we got it published. As it turns out, we have two editions. One is full color inside and out, and sells as a paperback SPECIAL EDITION for $24.99. The second edition has the same beautiful color cover but is black and white inside. It sells for $14.99. Both are available at http://www.amazon.com. It has 132 pages and is a 6×9 trade paperback. Buy: http://tinyurl.com/pcejv9d.
The gorgeous artwork for the cover is done by author Mary Montague Sikes. The authors who contributed recipes are: Amy Bennett, Holli Castillo, Lorna Collins, Lesley A. Diehl, Michael Eldridge, Nicola Furlong, J. L. (Janet) Greger, Shirley Skufca Hickman, Ann K. Howley, Marilyn Levinson, J. R. (John) Lindermuth, Nancy LiPetri, F. M. (Marilyn) Meredith, Sharon Arthur Moore, Radine Trees Nehring, Carolyn Niethammer, Eileen Obser, Beryl Reichenberg, Tanis Rush, Ilene Schneider, Anne Schroeder, Mary Montague Sikes, Denise Weeks, Robert Weibenzahl, John R. Wills and Jackie Taylor Zortman.
Amazon describes our book this way: ” Not only are the
Oak Tree Press authors wonderful writers, they are also great cooks. Meals often appear in their books. This cookbook assembles the best of their recipes along with author profiles and a bit about their books. Special thanks for the owner of Oak Tree Press, Billie Johnson, for her support and encouragement.”
With the holidays upon us, remember that books are great gifts, both as hostess gifts on Thanksgiving and for Christmas or Hanukkah presents. Hope you’ll keep it in mind as you prepare your holiday shopping list. Buy it and enjoy or wrap it up and give it to someone who likes to cook or just loves books.
