Posted by pamela mccoll on Friday, December 20, 2013,

French Macarons-Cookies with buttercream filling.

The ingredients are basic – however real care in measuring and in the technique makes the difference between success and failure with these very popular cookies sandwiched in butter cream.

Start by preparing your pans. You will need to create paper templates. Draw a series of 1.5” circles across a sheet of paper 8.5” x 14". This will then be placed under a sheet of parchment paper that has been cut to fit four baking sheets. Use th...

IGNITE A CONVERSATION AROUND SMOKING PREVENTION

Posted by pamela mccoll on Wednesday, September 5, 2012,
I noticed in the news today that Kentucky is gearing up to further smoke- free legislation in 2013. It has been my
direction for some time to put energies into getting kids to not start. Einstein said it is easier to get started in anything than it is to get oneself out of anything.... I don't know the exact quote but you get the idea. Addiction can be a tricky concept to explain to an adult let alone a child but this is the conversation we need to develop in our social cure to tobacco use.

Printing on demand

Posted by pamela mccoll on Saturday, August 11, 2012,
I have printed this book in the old fashioned way - by the truck load and I have them in distribution channels across North Smerica the old fashioned way. Yes we printed with FSC paper and vegetable inks.  I met a woman last night at a reception who was a first time publisher who was going to print on demand. It is something I don't know alot about and I wonder how this works out financially for a writer or self publisher.  I find it not impossible but challenging to be a small publisher espe...

French and Spanish Editions are in bindery

Posted by pamela mccoll on Saturday, August 11, 2012,
It is just days away until the books are packed up in boxes and the distribution starts that we have been working on for almost a year now. It is not always the case that a publisher releases translations in the same year as launching the book but I felt there was a market for spanish and french books so I thought it would meet the market - so why wait.
The book is finding support and it is only every once in awhile that I find someone who says hands off the classics. The classics will always...

Spent Easter Saturday morning checking out this site out of Australia. Love their graphics and hope they take a look at Twas as it is going to be available worldwide as Atlas has reps everywhere. I would like to write a guest blog on their site and hopefully someone will review it and help get the word out there about the loss of the pipe.  I had a call from Merry Makers yesterday and the reindeer toy sample is flying here for Monday. Then it will take months to get the little character made ...
