Vinny is excited about offering you a chance to read his book! Go ahead and preview a few pages on-line. Just click on the pic! Or log on to www.blurb.com/bookstore and enter “Cook Up A Story” in the search box.
If you’d like to order a copy, your book will be manufactured on demand. If you live in Canada it will be shipped to you from Calgary within 10 days. There are savings for groups ordering five or more copies. Your discount increases with the number of copies ordered. Best yet, the shipping cost per copy falls when you order more than one. The overall savings can be as much as $8 to $10 a copy. If you live in Ottawa and can pick up your copies from Sharon, she’s made a bulk order and would love to pass along the savings. Funnily enough there are even further savings if you pay in US dollars. Scroll to the very bottom of the screen and in the right corner select “United States” from the Blurb Country drop-down menu.
The quality of the books is pretty nice, too. You get 80 pages in full color on an opaque paper stock with a slight luster. The soft cover is durable and these books are perfect bound. The hard-cover version is image wrapped with gray end papers and has the same excellent paper stock as in the soft-cover copy, but these books are library bound for greater durability. A third option is a hard cover with a dust jacket. More technical details are available on-line.
All except $2 of the cost covers printing and distribution. Sharon is donating any profits after expenses to children’s literacy groups or a food bank in the community.
