I’m so excited to announce that my new book 99 Baking and Decorating Tips by Angie Fairbrother is now available on Amazon in both Kindle and Paperback format. (Cue happy dance!)

I’ve wanted to write a book for a long time and created this one to help and assist those of you who need a little go-to guide once in a while. It’s great for kids who are interested in baking, it’s helpful to those of you that have an idea of what you’re doing, and there is even stuff in there to help those who have a pretty good idea of what to do too.  In short, I start the book from turning the oven on (which is an essential tip in itself) and include things that have helped me along the way.  There are pictures next to each tip so if you’re flicking through it; it will be easier to find what you’re looking for rather than just searching through a mass of text.
I do hope you enjoy the book...

Awesome, how are sales? I can imagine it's terribly hard to sell any book, no matter how good it may be

It's a lot more difficult than you think. Sales are ticking over, but you have to keep reminding people it's out there and promote it at every opportunity. I'm still coming up with ways of putting it out there. The thing is you have to persuade people to part with their hard-earned cash on something you've created. Currently, it sits in one of the biggest libraries/book stores in the world, so I have to entice people to look at it then buy/read it. But on a plus note, that means lots more eyes around the world get to see it! :D

All the feedback that I'm receiving from people is that they absolutely love it, so that's great. I just need them to tell their friends about it and so on.

I'd love it to thrive and think it's an excellent book for adults and children alike so when it picks up the pace and starts spidering to where it needs to be; sales will flourish. :cool:

Once it gets there, I'll start on the second book.

I hope your sales do pick up, at the moment I've not said anything about it because of trying to keep it a secret from Kelly but once I've given her the book hopefully she will spread the word around about it, she has lots of friends and knows a lot of people in the catering industry as well.

The trouble as well is I don't go out so don't see other people and at the moment keep quiet on Facebook because Kelly sees my posts.

Just hang on in there we'll get you noticed and hopefully sales will start to rise. :grinning:

Lol, Mrs Secret Squirrel you do make me laugh. :tearsofjoy: That's very thoughtful thanks, Joan. ;)

My hairdresser friend is promoting me too, so you get a cut and blow with a quick read of my book! :)

As you know, I've posted on Fb, Twitter and here which is pretty much my social media side and then I've spoken to people I know from the Butcher the Baker to the Candlestick maker and then everyone else in between. :D

I don't do the school run anymore so I cannot promote it in the playground so; literally, I'm trying to cover all the places that I go to and leaving a copy of the book so they can pass it around and show their colleagues. I'm like the bookman but just promoting my own book! :cool: I used to love that guy.

I do appreciate all the help I'm getting, and my Amazon reviews are all 5 stars, so it's all good. People obviously like it, which was my aim as I wanted to teach to the masses. I do have a few book signings to do, but no Book Tour planned as yet, there is time though! :p
