Something Besides Pandemic News

It is my hope that you have exercised your right and your voice to VOTE.  It is that time of the year when we can make changes or maintain the status quo at the highest levels of government.

 

I don’t know of anyone who isn’t suffering from Covid-19 fatigue.   In March it was overwhelming to be cloistered in our homes, wear masks and stay 6 feet from the next guy everywhere from the grocery store to the walking path in the park.  Everyone I know is “over it.”  But we can’t let our guard down and we must stay vigilant.

 

Do you remember the newsletter we got at the height of the pandemic from ReadersMagnet inviting authors to take the opportunity to work on those projects we had put on the back burner?   Being confined to our homes we were presented an opportunity to exercise our writing skills to finish that project started long ago.  Over the many months, we have had time to research topics of interest, to think about plots and characters and to smile knowing that your mind can be as creative as ever.

For me, well I made a decision to publish a cookbook, Generations of Good Food.  It is in the beginning stages of production.  The book is an extension of my book One Caregiver’s Journey which is about the

9 ½ years I spent caregiving for my mother.  After my mother’s passing, I gathered all her cookbooks and recipes and assembled a cookbook of her favorite recipes for her grand and great-granddaughters and a few others.  I had it printed at a local Office Depot, put it in a red three ring binder and gave it to the 20 people on the list.   I toyed with the idea of publishing the cookbook earlier this summer.  I spent several months transcribing the handwritten book to my computer, had it professionally edited and submitted it ReadersMagnet to be published.  To my surprise there are 200 recipes, and the book is broken into categories of main and miscellaneous dishes, breads, cakes, cookies, and candy.   I have tied it back to One Caregiver’s Journey by adding personal stories to many of the recipes.  The recipes which brought back memories of special family times and the special people who shared or swapped recipes with my mother have memories that I have shared.   My mother was 102 at the time of her death and many of the recipes are from the days when she was a young girl.  To be sure, many of the recipes yield lots of cookies or feed a hungry big family.  My cousins will often ask who will bake a recipe that makes 8 loaves of bread?  Well, we do every Easter.  I am excited of it to be published and to share it with the world.

For a couple of months, the pandemic wasn’t front and center as I transcribed recipes.  It doesn’t mean the reality is gone but it brought a smile to my face to take that project off the back burner and bring it forward and get it “cooking.”  What about you?  What’s happening or happened that you want to share with other authors or even the world?  To that end, I invite you to post an article on Ellie’s Corner.  Share your ideas, your thoughts, and your knowledge with the rest of us.  Tell us about the book you want to write, or something you read that caught your interest or the latest blog you posted on your webpage.  What’s your passion?

Don’t be shy – I invite you to be part of Ellie’s Corner or to possibly have your article posted on the ReadersMagnet forum page.

So, I got a call. This very kind and patient man named Danver Maglasang walked me through this process to showcase my book, my baby, my hopes and dreams to share with more people than I can reach alone. What a wonderful fellow. I love him. Earlie Masciantonio

Thank you, ReadersMagnet for reviewing my manuscript! Before, I wasn’t really sure if I should push forward my plans of self-publishing my book because I am not confident with my words. Your editorial services and your honesty made gave me the boost I needed. Now I am excited to take a step further. I feel inspired. Great job, ReadersMagnet!
