book launch

A Successful Book Launch!

Is it really only one week since I flicked that cyber switch and release my e-Book Easy Tasty Clean to the world? It feels like a lot longer to be honest!

This first week began with a lovely flurry of buyers, eager to get their hands on the book, which had been much anticipated by Nancy Reinhardt’s coaching clients, my own fitness friends and many clean living fans too. The rest of the week didn’t disappoint either, with a steady flow of would-be clean-eaters ready to improve their eating habits and widen their repertoire of go-to recipes. So I thank everyone who has got themselves a copy of the book up to now, I appreciate you all!

I’ve had a great response from people reading the book too, comments such as these:-

“I love this book – thank you so much!! Already prepping for a grocery run so I can make several recipes the week.”

“I love it already! Had a quick peruse, beautifully presented, the recipes look amazing. There isn’t one I don’t want to try which impresses me sooo much. All are affordable too which makes clean eating so much easier and I love that you provide nutritional breakdown too.”

“I have just downloaded the book and the only thing that I can say is “WOW”!!!!  I expected it to be a very nice and useful book, but you have blown my expectations out of the water!  Nice job and congratulations on putting out such a fantastic book.”

So, I was very pleased to hear this type of reaction. And I should just add that none of the above were from family or friends 😉

The true test, however, is of course in the cooking. How would the recipes be received when they were actually made and eaten? Again I’ve had several great comments, these two both came in last night:-

“Made the Vanilla Protein Pancakes with Greek Yogurt & Fruit from the cookbook this morning, they were great! Even my girls liked them!! :)”

“I made the turkey meatloaf, but put it all in muffin tins….. It was awesome!!! Should have made the big meatloaf as its all gone!!”

The testimonial that I’m most proud of this week came from Sarah Laurie, who is an amazing girl who has transformed herself into a fitness goddess, she certainly knows all there is to know about clean eating and hitting the gym! I’ve put her full review at the bottom of the home page of the website so please go and have a look what she had to say, I still read it and smile. Thanks Sarah!

Last night I had a great message from Leigh, who says she has just planned out a whole week of meals based on the recipes in the book, and that she would be feeding her whole family of 7 the same! I told her I was honoured that she was using the book to fulfil the dietary requirements of herself and her family, and I am. This is exactly how I wanted to help people to cook delicious food that is also clean and very healthy. Go Leigh!

The last thing that I have done this week is get the Easy Tasty Clean Facebook ‘Like’ page up and running. On there I will share clean eating tips & recipe ideas, so please click on the big ‘f’ to the left there and click ‘Like’ on the page if you would like to keep up to date with me that way.

I wish you all a great up-coming week, keep it clean!



Launch Day Is Finally Here!

Easy Tasty Clean has finally been launched!!! I almost can’t believe it!  Almost 3 months ago I cooked my first dish for the book, which I had no idea would turn out as big as it has. 162 pages, 60 recipes, thousands of words and not 1 but 2 e-Books (for the price of one)!!! I think I should be proud of myself. Ok, I am. is live!!

Strangely, when I flicked the switch to make the ‘Buy Now’ buttons live this morning, I felt like I wanted to do it quietly, so no one noticed, just let it slip out into the ether of the worldwide web when no one was watching. Maybe it’s the knowledge that actual real living people with opinions and sometimes harsh words may get their copy and I’d be open to public opinion. I know I shouldn’t worry because I’ve had my little team of testers making the recipes, my close friends reviewing the words in the introductory chapters for me, and I know I’ve cooked and photographed every single one of the recipes myself, so I should have confidence that all is well.

Since you last saw the book, the cover has been enhanced slightly to include Nancy Reinhardt, who has kindly written a great foreword for the book and also shares her clean eating tips in the book too. Nancy is featuring the book on her own website too as she believes passionately that there is a need for a book like this, for people who want to create truly clean meals and who are working towards a goal of a fitter and leaner body. This is the new cover anyway, what do you think?

Lately I’ve also been investigating the possibility of getting the book printed as a full-colour book, just an idea at the moment but who knows, I could be sending out signed copies of those soon! Hee hee.

So, what’s next for the Easy Tasty Clean inventor? I don’t want to say too much but what I will say is that I couldn’t resist buying a couple of nice-looking dishes the other day, and they don’t feature in this book. That’s all.

Personally, I have received my September workout Challenge pack from Nancy Reinhardt this morning, so I will be giving it some welly in the gym later. And maybe now I have all this spare time on my hands, maybe I’ll have time for a little fun!!!

This is not the end of the blog now the book is out there on sale, I will be keeping you updated on how it’s going, so please stay with me if you can!
