The set-up: we're about midway through the book-release party, and Penny is seated at the Troublemaker Table - a group of my friends in the back row who were giggling, laughing and generally causing trouble. I'm in the middle of a chapter presentation, and Penny's phone rang - and this is what happened next.
Full book-release party footage, including a short movie and a few other clips, coming soon.
Penny is the daughter-in-law of Lulu Frulla, the subject of Chapter One of Pizza for Good. For more on the book and to purchase, click over to the book blog.
Help Me Bust The eBook Bias: Five Reasons Why ‘Pizza for Good’ Can And Will Break The Media-coverage Glass Ceiling
Whatever you think after reading, one thing is for sure: local and national media turn their noses up at eBooks, and it’s time to shift that paradigm. If traditional books may be on the decline statistically, news outlets haven’t gotten that memo. Too many good ebooks are going un-covered, unloved and un-bought. And my first eBook, “Pizza for Good,” is as good as any to break the mold. “PFG” can and will give enterprising, altruistic folks a fun way to raise money for causes that need it.
Why should “Pizza for Good” be the book that breaks through? Glad you asked. Here’s the first of five reasons why this book deserves more coverage:
1. America’s Favorite Food. Pizza is the “culinary magnetic charge that transforms hungry people in to a unified army,” as I write in the book’s introduction. You know the feeling of anticipation when you order take-away pizza—but what if I told you that delicious, fresh pizza made at home using fresh ingredients also can be a rally cry to raise money? The book explains a simple blueprint for doing just that, and you get some snazzy recipes, photos, video and stories, too.
