Vegan Red Velvet Cake with Vegan "Cream Cheese" Frosting, Vegan "Cheesecake" topped with Strawberries, Vegan Chocolate Bread Pudding, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies, Vegan Brownies, Vegan Pumpkin Pie, Vegan Pecan Pie and lots, lots more, and they're all vegan. "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vegan Baking" by Donna Diegel (that's me!) has almost 200 recipes in it!
My new book is almost here! I can't believe I'll see a finished copy of "The Idiot's Guide to Vegan Baking" in just a few short weeks. When I signed the contract with Penguin Publishing 13 months ago, I never thought I'd see the day when my book would actually sit on a Barnes & Noble book shelf. But that time has come! My heart skips a beat just thinking about it. The book is finished and at the printers. I should have my author copies soon for reviews and such.
Amazon.com has had the book available for pre-order for months now, even before it had a yummy glossy photo on it. It's doing well in pre-order too. Good enough for Amazon to make it available in their Kindle edition. If you pre-order "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Vegan Baking" now, you'll save $5.66 and get it as soon as it's released on April 5th. If you order two books, it'll push you over the minimum for free shipping, and we all love free shipping!
Soooo, what I'm doing right now? Waiting, waiting, and waiting for the next 5 weeks to pass by. On Tuesday, April 5th, 2011, I may just take a ride to my local Barnes & Noble or Borders book store and browse the vegetarian section. Maybe, just maybe, I'll find a bright orange and white book staring back at me with my name on the cover!
Here's a few pictures of my vegan baked goods. I took lots of photos while I was baking, so you'll likely see some show up every now and then. I'll also be starting a new Vegan Blog soon just for the book Keep a lookout for it!
