Free & Excellent Children's Ebook: The Worldwide Dessert Contest by Dan Elish

Oh, how my blogging has fallen by the wayside…alas.  Too much fun away = too much work to catch up on back home.

I hope I’ll get back to a more normal blogging schedule soon, but in the mean time, here’s a GREAT deal from a fabulous writer (and a darn good guy) that involves one of my favorite children’s books:

From Dan Elish:

“My first, and possibly best, children's novel, THE WORLDWIDE DESSERT CONTEST is now available for FREE on Amazon in a special promotion. The version available is an ebook that includes links to songs I wrote. So you get a novel and songs all in one! All you need is a computer, iPhone, iPad or any other reading device and a Kindle APP (which is also free) and the book is yours.”

Here’s the link.

And here’s the book’s opening (from my old-fashioned paper edition)…you’ll only have to read a short time to understand why this book is especially close to my heart!

“John Applefeller of Appleton loved desserts.

Especially apple desserts.

He loved eating them, but even more, he loved making then—pies, strudels, crisps, and cakes.  As his Aunt Harriet used to say:  If a man truly cares about making desserts, an apple dessert is what he should make. 

And now, after a decade of making all kinds of different desserts, John Applefeller had just completed the greatest creation of his career—the world’s largest apple pancake.”

Side note:  Here’s a recipe for a yummy looking puffed apple pancake.

Hurry, hurry…this great deal on Dan’s book won’t be around forever.
