Autographs, anyone?

by Lorna Barrett / Lorraine Bartlett / L.L. Bartlett

As most of you know, the Cozy Chicks have published our first joint effort--The Cozy Chicks Kitchen, filled with recipes from our own lives and those of our characters.  So far, readers seem to like it.  (Whew!)

The folks who picked up the trade paperback edition of the cookbook at the Malice Domestic mystery conference last weekend received a copy that was autographed by all seven of the Chicks.  Guess what, if you bought the paperback edition, you too can enjoy the same perk.  The Cozy Chicks are offering--and for free--a signed bookplate to anyone who purchases the book. All you have to do is send us an email at cozychicks(at)gmail(dot)com and include your snail mail address.  No strings attached.

Even better--if you write a review of more than one or two sentences the cookbook and post it on either Amazon or Barnes & Noble (both is better), we'll send you Cozy Chicks swag.  (Which includes bookmarks from all the Chicks, plus a bonus recipe card and an incredibly cute teapot cookie cutter.)

How can you miss?


We're sorry -- but the teapot cookie cutters are now gone -- but we're still giving away author swag, a bonus recipe card,  and a signed bookplate from all the Chicks to any of our readers who write a review of the Cozy Chick Cookbook. (Must be longer than one or two sentences long.)  All you have to do is send us an email at cozychicks(at)gmail(dot)com and include your snail mail address.  No strings attached.

I love my autographed cookbook. If you haven't yet purchased the book, do so, you'll enjoy it as well as I do.

Those cookie cutters are adorable. Wish I'd snagged one for myself. ;)

Since mine is on my Kindle Fire, it's hard to autograph! (My Fire has turned into a giant electronic cookbook) This is one of the few cook books I have bought as opposed to all the wonderful free ones out there. I never remember to do reviews, but I did do one for you guys. thanks for the heads up!!

Thanks, Ev! We really appreciate it!

Many reasons to celebrate! Given you wrote your blog, Lorna, on my birthday (Yup..May 5th) I decided to treat myself to the Cozy Chicks
Kitchen Cookbook. Good idea, yes? Nothing like giving oneself a great birthday gift. I ordered it via Amazon after reading your blog. I hope that qualifies for the bookplate offer which sounds like so much fun!
I come to the Cozy Chicks Blog when I need a lift and you all never fail me. Keep up the good work! And thanks...Adrienne

Hi again....I received my Cozy Chicks Cookbook and read it last night instead of one of your books! All the recipes look tempting and I can't wait to get started. I just sent my review to Amazon. My name comes in as
"Ande"...a nickname from my childhood oh so long ago! I am such a fan of the Cozy Chicks authors, I know I'll love your recipes. By the way, the people who went out and saved your book treasures by purchasing them were truly angels. Throwing out books should be against the law! What a waste of your effort and all that creativity. Surely they could at least donate them. At any rate, thanks for the update of the help you received from fans. We all feel so connected to you dear authors!

I just received your cookbook from my son for Mother's Day (yes, he is one terrific son!!) and it is great! I love the variety of recipes and can't wait to try them out. Of course, being a cozy fan, the reference to some of my favorite books is an added bonus. My review is on Amazon and appears under the name "Jane Doe". Thanks so much for a great read! It's a super addition to my cookbook collection.

Adrienne and Jane -- thank you so much for buying our cookbook and thanks for the reviews. They are an important way of letting other readers know about the recipes and the anecdotes about our lives and various series.

Hey Chicks - I received my goodie bag today. What a sweet surprise! I'm absolutely thrilled and now the Cozy Chicks cookbook is even more special, with the autographed book plate firmly nestled inside the front cover. Thank you so very much!
