message 15: by Martha

Martha Cheves With 8 books you sound like the perfect person to ask for help. I have a cookbook that was released in June of this year. It's not your normal cookbook. It takes cooking back to the basics using common ingredients found in most kitchens, tips to make cooking easier and stories about the recipes including mistakes I made while working up the dishes. I have had about 10 book signings and am booked until Christmas. But my local market is becoming saturated. How do I get my book noticed? This book makes a perfect gift, especially for the young adults. Any advice will greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Dorien Hi, Lacresha:

It was very kind of you to invite me to join your GoodReads friends list. I'm always curious to know how people come across my name.

From your profile, it appears our primary unifying factor is poetry, though I mainly write mysteries. If you might have a few minutes, I'd be pleased to have you stop by my website and find out a bit more about me.

Again, thanks, and I look forward to learning more about you here on GoodReads.

Best Regards,


Stacy-Deanne Stacy-Deanne Hope your week is filled with happiness, positivity and inspiration!

Liz Hello Lacresha,

Thanks for the invitation to add you as my friend. I'm delighted to do so. I've read your profile, looked at the books you've been reading, and was struck by how beautiful you are, inside and out, it seems.

The title of your book intrigues me. I look forward to getting to know you better through Goodreads.

All best,
