I’ve been working on a little side project for the last few months, and while it’s not 100% finished yet (close! so close!) I want to share a little teaser with you today… it’s something I’m super psyched about and I simply couldn’t wait any longer to tell you about it. I hope you are as excited as I am!
It’s my great pleasure to announce That’s My Jam: an ebook series featuring seasonal jam recipes and matching printable labels. The eBooks will be released in 4 editions, one for each season. The Summer edition will be released this June, with the Autumn, Winter and Spring editions launching thereafter. I’ll also be including some basic canning info for beginning canners and those looking to start canning (no more excuses!) And a special bonus is in store if you buy all 4… trust me, you’ll love it. :)
Some of the recipes you might recognize (though they’ve all been updated and re-tested with the new techniques and methods I’ve learned over the years), and many, most in fact, are brand new and never before published. Each and every one comes with their own custom designed-by-me printable label. There are recipes for lavender-peach and ginger-pear and strawberry-rhubarb, jams spiked with booze and jams infused with flowers and jams that combine multiple fruits for a mind-bending flavor experience. At this point I feel like if it can be made into a jam or jelly, I’ve gone and done it.
Let’s just say I’ve been eating a lot of jam lately as a result of this project. Not a bad place to be in, to be honest. And I sincerely hope that once the eBooks are released into the wild, you’ll find yourself in a similar (delicious) predicament.
Why jam? Why an eBook? Well, I love canning (just take a gander at the canning recipe archives and that much is clear), and as a graphic designer one of my favorite parts of the whole process is designing pretty labels for my canned creations (the jam isn’t finished until it’s been properly labeled, in my opinion). I’ve always shared those labels with you over the years, and and figured that this concept would make for a perfect eBook. I’ve been through the whole cookbook writing process (twice, actually) and, frankly, don’t really want to do it again (at least in the near future). But an eBook, on the other hand, gives me full creative control and allows me to include interactive elements like links and printable labels. It’s the perfect medium for such a thing.
So there you have it, it’s announced and official and that means I really have to finish it, don’t I? Heh. Stay tuned, as I’ll be posting more details as the launch draws nearer.
