This week has been really interesting. Following my resistance to let anyone look at the book when it came back from teh printers. I ended up going across the mountain to Maleny where the wonderful team at our local Maple Street Co-op had organised a book signing on Tuesday morning.
I arrived to find a table set up in the street with lots of my books, and the herbal skin balms and nectars there on display. It was lovely. there were even flowers on the table to greet me. Thank you to those who came along a got a copy or two of THE MAGIC OF FOOD AS MEDICINE. It was really nice to chat with you about your thoughts on nutrition, foods and medicines. I was really singing to the choir as in Maleny everyone I spoke to was already treating food as their first medicine and I was grateful that you were pleased we had put the book together in the usable format that can expand your understanding of active constituents and clinical trials that support herbs, fruits and vegetables as medicine.
I invite you to my book launch The book will be officially launched on December 28th at The Woodford Folk Festival in the Blue Lotus venue at 11.45am. All the wonderful people who have been working on the book will be there and our team will chat with you about how we put it all together and the process.
We will be officially in shops as the publication date is January 2013. So anyone getting a copy now has either pre purchased one, and the winner of the $500 medicine room voucher was Alison Drewer from Hervay Bay. The only outlets who are selling it are my stall at Eumundi Markets, My web site www.medicineroom.net , The Maple Street Co-Op, The Flaxton Barn and The Shop Neutral in Melbourne. So, if you want a copy now please contact us and we will help you.
Our lovely Reps at Brumby SunState books have started to go around to shops and show them the book, so you can ask at your local book seller or gift shop and if they don’t deal with the lovely people at Brumby Sunstate books we can give them the details.
The book sells for $30 each, is 136 pages of full colour and contains over 200 photographs. It is printed on recycled paper and we use soy ink. The book was 100% made in Australia ( the paper probably isn’t from here, but the work was kept here) and we are protecting the environment.
Wishing you a lovely week. This pic was taken of me outside the Maple Street Co-op on Tuesday by the lovely Lauren who writes for our local paper. Snce then I have had rumours that the article is in the Noosa News and the Range news.
Sat Nam and with love as always Dom xox
