Two advance copies of my new baby ‘Our Delicious Adventure – Recipes and Stories of Food and Travel’ arrived at my front door this week. It’s a moment I’ve waited for for months, feelings of both excitement and trepidation intertwined as I opened the package, all the while wondering will it be all I have hoped for.
I recently heard a conversation between Kevin McCloud the host of the British television series Grand Designs (a favourite program we enjoy) and a designer. Kevin asked the high-end designer working with a fussbudget client, one who was nit-picking at every crossroad of the project, ‘How do you manage someone who demands so much in both the design process and the installation of the finished product?’ His answer was so incredibly helpful to me, he said ‘my aim is to guide the client toward the understanding that the end result will be excellent, not perfect, as perfection is in fact unattainable’. So letting go of the concept of perfection I’m thrilled to convey that we as a team have produced an excellent publication, I’m happy with the end result and I know you are going to love it too. We are all go for receiving your pre-orders here.
(Pre-orders will be posted out end of August and we are offering (for the pre-order period July 1st to September 1st 2016) a flat rate of $10 postage Australia wide per order regardless of how many copies you purchase!)
For now enjoy an exclusive little taste of what is to come...
Plus SAVE THE DATE Saturday 3rd September 2016 from 2.30-4.30pm for our Sydney Afternoon Tea / Book Launch and Signing Celebration – more details on that real soon.
