I'm getting excited about the new Oh She Glows cookbook! Anyone have the insider scoop on it?
http://www.amazon.com/She-Glows-Every-D ... 968&sr=1-1

I just spent the last half hour looking at the Oh She Glows Every Day recipe testing photos, and I had to pre-order it.

I wish she was sharing more pics of savoury stuff. Smoothies and sweets do not a cookbook make, for me.

Not that everything doesn't look and sound delicious.

I agree with Moon--I want to see more dinner entrees before I purchase, although an everyday cookbook from a respected author is very appealing.

Thanks Kidsdoc.
I've got this is on my list of "I'm allowed to treat myself to this cookbook!" this year.

I started some weekend shopping early and went hunting to find where to preorder Oh She Glows Every Day, Angela Liddon’s second book. Looks like a lot of the vendors are offering preorders at discounted prices and promotions. Eg. Chapters/Indigo (Canada), book is $19.20 and if you pay by Visa there is a further 15% discount.

Angela is offering a Bonus Recipe Bundle for those who have preordered Oh She Glows Every Day, just like she did for her first book. You just need to fill out the form (link below) and include the order number.

Form for Bonus Recipe Bundle - Oh She Glows Every Day

http://ohsheglows.com/2016/08/04/my-bon ... e-is-here/

I downloaded the bundle this morning and the fudgesicles are chilling in the freezer. Wish they would hurry up and FREEZE !

I’m really looking forward to this book ! Kidsdoc, thanks for the recipe listing and instagram links. They sealed the deal for my purchase decision.

I preordered it a couple weeks ago while I was being reckless on the Internet and I might be regretting it. I don't know. I like the first book but it's not one I reach for regularly so.... I don't know.

How do you like the recipe bundle? I really want it, but I usually order my
Cookbooks on kindle and the kindle price is $21!! So I guess I need to wait.

The bundle is good and has the 11 recipes described in Angela's post. Four recipes are previews of ones that will be in Oh She Glows Every Day and 7 are new - not in the book or on the blog.

Honestly, the recipe I wanted the most was the fudgesicles because the kids in our household are eating commerical ones with way too much sugar, dairy and preservatives. I've tried homemade vegan versions before but they lacked the deeper creamy and chocolate flavour that Angela's recipe has. It is a solid recipe ! I also made the fudgesicles smaller - fewer calories, sugar and easier for the little kids to eat before they melt.

I'll likely make the Superseed Protein Energy Scoops tomorrow. If I can find almonds on sale at the bulk store, I'll try the tamari almond recipe.

When I pull up Oh She Glows Every Day Kindle version on Amazon.com, I get a price of $14.05. Paying $21 is definitely high ! The bundle will be available until Sept 13, according to Angela's blog post, and there may be other discounts closer to the release date. And Christmas/New Years sales are just around the corner...

I'm very grateful for all the recipe, cookbook, and personal experience information on the PPK. It helps me make informed choices for my very tight vegan cookbook budget.

Where in the US are you? I'm in LA and seeing the ebook for $20.99:

https://www.amazon.com/She-Glows-Every- ... 01C3PTTG0/

It's a ridiculous price since the print book is $15.69. I am really glad SkullNBoneAppetit said something about it.

I'm not holding out for a sale anytime soon, since Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking, which has the same publisher (Penguin Group / Avery) is priced similarly ($18.99 for the ebook, $14.81 for the print book) and hasn't gone on sale yet. I'm watching both books with the help of ereaderIQ.com.

Quite honestly, pricing an ebook above $9.99, or $12 tops, seems absurd. Pricing it higher than the print version of the same book feels like a big middle finger to readers who prefer their cookbooks in digital format. I would never pirate since I'm a writer myself, but I think this practice encourages piracy.

I just looked on Amazon and even the originally Oh She Glows book is $18.99 now. I think I bought it right when it came out and it was about $15. But I try not to pay full price for ebooks, since they usually have flash sales on them. It's just so hard to be patient, especially when you are a cookbook addict, like myself. Over $15 is crazy for an ebook.

I make exceptions for Isa's cookbooks, both because I've bought each one since VWAV and they hold a special place in my heart, as well as because I appreciate the PPK boards so much. Isa's ebooks are priced sensibly relative to her print books, though, if I recall correctly.

Otherwise, I agree with you. I especially don't think the publishers are doing cookbook authors any favors when they price their ebooks above the print price.

Mumbles once posted the funniest comment, that the publishers were charging extra for the service of avoiding a bunch of excess paper cluttering up your house.

Definitely a ridiculous price !!

I would like to learn more about how book stores price print books and ebooks. There are such huge variations in price between vendors, time of day, and even whether or not I clear my browser cache....

I have a US Kindle and a US account at amazon.com. When I first looked up the price for OSG Every Day I was in Grand Marais MN pulling local wifi and was shown the $14.05 US price for the Kindle version and $15.69 US for the paperback. I'm back in Canada now (near Thunder Bay, Ontario) and when I click the above link to OSG Every Day, I still get a Kindle price of $14.05 US. On Amazon.ca OSG Every Day Kindle version is showing me a price of $15.99 CDN - though I can't buy it because I have a US Kindle.

Angela has always been very open to feedback about her blog, recipes, and books. She may not have authority over book pricing but the power of a question to her publisher based upon customer feedback may be constructive.

In an era when we have so many choices about how we buy (or borrow) reading materials, customers are understandably put off with what appears to be inconsistent and unfair pricing.

Angela describes the bundle as a 'thank you' for supporting her new cookbook (source: her blog).

If you can pre-order the book/ebook at a good price, then the bundle is a nice bonus. However, if you're one of the folks who use US Kindle and get the $21 US purchase price for the ebook, I'd say that it is NOT worth the preorder.

I'm still wondering if Amazon made some sort of pricing mistake on OSG Every Day Kindle version at $21 and the paperback at $15.69. I dunnnoooo....weird though.

Good to know! If I buy, it'll be the paperback... tho I do rather like ebooks for cookbooks. Decisions, decisions!

I pre-ordered a long time ago because I use the first cookbook so much. I really love her recipes and they are usually quite omni-friendly. That being said, I don't think the bundle is worth it to pre-order if you are not sure or the price isn't right. The recipes in the bundle are nice, but it's not like there is a major must-have hit like the cheezeball in this one.

This. Especially knowing that some of these are already available in the book. Nothing really jumped out at me as being really exciting. Though I should probably reserve judgement until I actually try one. The fudgesicles do sound good from their review.

I might pay $20 for an ebook cookbook if I knew it was actually properly formatted. Too many cookbooks have crepe formatting, poor linking, and worst all, useless indexes that aren't clickable.

Too many regular mass market paperbacks are more in ebook form than the print version, so I am actually paying a tax to not clutter my house with paper. I've actually donated almost all of my books. I've only kept a very few sentimental favorites, expensive books, or books not available in ebook. I've just bought an ebook if I had the burning desire to reread.

I only discovered this recently, but Amazon will refund an ebook price, even if you read through the entire book. I think the deadline is 24-48 hours. I've returned about half of the cookbooks I've bought and made sure to write that the reason was poor formatting and usability.

I'm considering pre-ordering.

The Amazon ebook return policy period is actually seven days:

http://goodereader.com/blog/e-book-news/how-to-return-and-get-a-refund-for-an-e-book

I am reluctant to use it a lot because it is possible to get flagged for overusing it. Still, I do use it from time to time. Here is an explanation of how it works:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201252620

Another cool Amazon policy is that they allow ebook lending on a one time basis for 2 weeks. Unfortunately it only works with books published by small digital publishers and with self-published books. The major New York print publishing houses don't allow it with their books.

I haven't seen Angela's Party Hearty Cheese Ball recipe any where but in the 'bonus bundle' for her first book. She does acknowledge that the recipe was 'inspired' by a recipe by Somer McCowan. Somer's cheese ball recipe is on her blog:

KICK ACE EXTRA SHARP RAW VEGAN HOLIDAY CHEDDAR CHEESE BALL
https://vedgedout.com/2013/11/15/kick-a ... k-edition/


I don't have access to my home recipe folder but having made both recipes, l think the OSG one adds a bit of garlic for flavour instead of the dried tomatoes and sherry in Somer's. The recipes are indeed very similar. Most vegan cheese ball recipes I've made have needed a few tbsp of non-dairy milk(almond is my preference) added to get the desired texture.

You can roll the balls in sliced almonds or what ever you want - nuts, seeds, dried fruit. I prefer to chop up some smoked almonds, pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries.

Just a heads-up re the vegan cheese balls made with coconut oil - they don't keep their texture long in the summer heat and humidity - say an hour of the fridge - less if it is crazy hot/humid. Last month I took a veggie tray with cheese ball to a BBQ potluck. I made 2 cheese balls - kept one in the fridge and served it a bit later after the first ball was gone.
