“Sorry I haven’t got back to you sooner but as you can guess I have been “swamped” with all sorts of things since the books arrived.
They are absolutely wonderful – better than I could have ever expected – and there has been a fantastic response from everyone who has seen them.
One man ordered 10 and then came back today for another10. Already the Reporter has received a wonderful letter about it which they are printing next week – and that was within hours of the person getting hold of the book
I know I couldn’t have done it without you, your guiding hand, patience and expertise. If this is the first recipe book you have done, then you should be giving yourself a big pat on the back.
Believe it or not I haven’t read it yet. I don’t think I’ve had time to even flick through it. We have all been so busy taking the boxes to various places to store them.
WH Smiths in Dewsbury are selling them, and their Leeds branch has asked for some. I am hoping to be on Radio Leeds next week, and the story has gone in all our papers and hopefully will also be in the Huddersfield Examiner and Yorkshire Evening Post.
I think we got the book right in every way – front cover, pictures, and the price. And if do get an award in the Gourmand Book Awards which are being judged later this year – it will be because of your fantastic input. Every time I look at the book I think this. Without you it could so easily have been second-rate, despite the brilliant photographs and interesting contents. I really mean that!
Once again thank you so much – and I hope you don’t have withdrawal symptoms when my e-mails finally stop. I will try to withdraw them slowly!
Speak to you soon.”
