I’ve finally published my Pieday Friday recipe book – in time for National Pie Week!

Some items in this blog post have been gifted

As we all know it’s National Pie Week in the UK this week (I hope you saw my blog post on my favourite pie recipes on Monday?) and I have some more good news to share with you…

I’ve been working on a free recipe book to share all my Pieday Friday recipes with you! It’s been in the pipeline for a couple of months now, and I’m pleased to say that it’s finally finished!

I used the BookSmart programme from Blurb.com to create my book, which gave a novice publisher like me an easy way to create a book from the comfort of my own home! I was impressed with the selection of page layouts and backgrounds, and there’s even the option to customize the pages you’re creating with a custom-theme, which I decided to use so that I could fit in all the images and recipe information that I needed.

I’m always wary of downloading software to my computer – I don’t like to take up precious hard-drive space on my ancient laptop with programmes that I might not need – but this programme was ideal for me to use to create my book. It was surprisingly simple to use, the photo-uploader was fast (I hate waiting around!) and it was so simple to drag-and-drop images into the pages and let BookSmart do all the resizing and resolution-checking for me. You can probably guess from my ramblings-on that I am thrilled with the results of my book and I can’t wait any longer to share it with you!

I’ve decided that National Pie Week is very apt for me to publish my first Pieday Friday cookery book so I am launching it today and want to share the free e-book with you all! No longer will you be searching back through my archives to find your favourite recipe – it’s all there in the book, and it not only contains pie recipes, but all of my favourites including soups and snacks, sweet treats and main meals! Using Blurb there’s the option of selling your books publicly and here’s the link to my profile on Blurb where Blurb sells my book (I only make 2 quid on these eek!) but I want to give something back to my lovely readers so I’ve published it as a free PDF e-book as a ‘thank you’ for sticking with me all this time soooo…  Preview the E-Book here and email me cassie@cassiefairy.co.uk and I will send you the PDF e-book immediately!
