Launch Day!

Launch Day!

July 23rd. It’s a date that I’ve had in the back, front and sides of my mind for about a year. About 16 months ago, I handed in my 122,186 word manuscript to my editor at Penguin Random House Canada, sat back, exhaled and got on with work and life until the next step. 

Writing the 122,186 words took a solid four months to write, as in all day, every day. Well, unless I was speaking with a moms group, had a TV or radio segment or a meeting, that is. It’s intense work and with a team of research students to verify what I was writing and search for what was most up to date and what I felt readers need to know somehow turned into Sprout Right Family Food. 

Today is the day that we all can walk into a book store like Indigo, pick it up, leaf through it and take it home. Of course, you can click away and order from Amazon.ca or Indigo.ca, but if you want to have it in your hot little hands today, you know what you’ve got to do. 

In promoting Sprout Right Family Food, there are media segments booked, interviews scheduled, articles are written, and on Monday, I started off this ‘tour’ of sorts by appearing on CTV’s The Social. The energy was buzzing as I talked about some easy summer recipes from my book. From Yummy Carrot Spread to Pure Green Hummus, Curry Quinoa Salad with Apricots, Smarty Pants Fish Cakes, and Bean and Veggie Kamut Quesadilla, the lovely ladies of The Social found new pairings - like Melissa Grelo loving the Quesadilla with the Yummy Carrot Spread! In case you missed it, watch it here:

Now that all my words are released out into the world, I’m going to once again, sit back, exhale and notice what the ripple effect will be. 

As I’ve said before, my goal or purpose if you want to call it that, is to help our next generation to be healthier than the last. Let’s see what unfolds, shall we? 

Any shares, comments, reviews that you can leave on Amazon.ca or Indigo.ca after your purchase will all assist in spreading the word, so thank you!
