It happened almost immediately after EXTREME CAKEOVERS was released. People began sending us unsolicited photos showing themselves or their children posing with our book. Our family members were the first to do it. After receiving their book in the mail, they took a photo and sent it to us. It felt like we were in the room celebrating the book’s release with them!
Then, the other photos followed. One of our client’s was in her local Barnes & Noble, spotted the book and took a photo of her daughter posing with it. Some of Rick’s students sent photos and so did a number of our friends. Before we knew it, we accumulated a wonderful selection of photos we will forever treasure, that continues to grow daily as people keep sending them to us! Inspired by the gesture, Rick and I snapped photos of each other upon seeing our book for the first time on bookstore shelves. These photos honor that very special time in an author’s life, when you finally share your book – your baby – with the world, and witness a person’s reaction upon seeing it for the first time. The moment is priceless! We want to thank everyone who shared their photos, and their smiles with us!
