I received a call yesterday from the publishing company saying my cookbooks are done and were going to be shipped yesterday afternoon! I am so excited to see how they turned out and so happy to have them in plenty of time for Christmas.
The publishing company, G and R Publishing, have been outstanding to work with. I would highly recommend them as far as service is concerned (I haven't yet seen the books so I can't comment on quality yet, but I have every reason to expect they will be top quality.) When I realized I might need them earlier than December 20th, the date that was promised, I called them. They were very pleasant and helpful, and said they would see what they could do. Now the books are expected to arrive the 13th or 14th.
An added bonus it seems, is that they will be sending extra copies to cover the cost of shipping, so if you would like a copy please let me know.
