Why not? That’s the question I asked myself, ending my wrestling over whether or not to pursue becoming an author. I decided to stall no longer on a dream that I’ve possessed for a few years and write my first cookbook published by A New Day Books Publishing.
The book entitled, “The Way I Sea It: A Collection of 30 Easy Recipes for the Seafood Lover”, will launch on Saturday, March 17, 2012 at Drexina Nelson Photography/ DNProductions, LLC., 781 Wheeler Street Studio 12, Atlanta, GA 30318 from 6pm-10pm. During the launch, I will autograph books and perform a cooking demo for one of the recipes from The Way I Sea It; Pinot Grigio Shrimp Scampi.
My goal was to create a small, manageable cookbook of which each recipe can be attempted at least once. I choose to do my first publication on seafood as I personally like it and find it relatively easy to prepare – however, I do not claim to be an expert on seafood.
