Hot Cookbook Ideas for the Summer

Hot Cookbook Ideas for the Summer

We hope you’re doing well and keeping cool.

It’s August. It’s hot! But fall and the holidays are going to come quicker than you think. You still have plenty of time to get your cookbook ready for Thanksgiving get-togethers. Just remember, it will take us 2-3 weeks to print and get your cookbooks to you. So plan to finish up by the first few days of November. That’s just 13 weeks away.

Right now is the perfect time to get everyone involved – and print your book for the holidays!
