I don’t know if you’ve heard, but, promotion of my grilled cheese cookbook, Melt: 100 Amazing Adventures in Grilled Cheese, has officially ended. Honestly, promotion was basically over at the end of 2013, I just haven’t posted anything about it. Without a new sandwich to post, I felt like now was as good a time as any to break the news to the world.
The book is well over a year old, I’ve only had two book appearances in 2014, and I just learned that the publisher has officially ceased production. Beyond purchasing the remaining copies (and possibly selling them at a great price, spatula included), there isn’t much left for Melt. Just a couple of years ago, I would have never imagined that I would be a cookbook author and yet here I am.
I traveled to NYC, DC, West Virginia and all over Cleveland promoting a cookbook I was truly lucky to put my name on.
I was on television and radio for the first time ever.
I was a part of something beyond my wildest dreams.
And I couldn’t be more proud.
Now it is time for Phase #2.
I am currently working through so many ideas for the next phase of GrilledShane (and simply Shane). I don’t have anything to announce at the moment, I am simply doing research, development and possibly writing a business plan. I hope to take what I have learned from this blog and my cookbook to elevate me to my future career, my future path. Phase #2.
As soon as I have something more to say, you know I will. Until then, keep your eyes peeled to this blog for many new, original and creative grilled cheese creations.
Thank you everyone and long live the grilled cheese.
