I love it when you hear a good solid thump of a book or magazine landing at the front door. There is that anticipation of what you will get to read when you rip open the envelope. It just gives you that excuse to stop whatever you are doing, put the kettle on and settle in for a good read.
While I love any sort of Amazonial goodie plonking down on the doorstep, I am even more thrilled when the packages proove to be filled with magazines or books that I have contributed to. Call me a media tart if you will, but I just love seeing my photos and words in print, a sort of validation of what I tend to spend my time on.
Anyway this week has brought some lovely goodies in the press department. The latest fall issue of the gorgeous American magazine Mingle and the Yours Yearbook.
Mingle has a rather fabby 6 page article I did about celebrating New Year and showcasing many of the foodie photos from my new book A Wee Taste Of Scotland while the Yours Yearbook has my recipe for Scottish Tea Loaf from my Simply Scottish Cakes & Bakesbook.
I’ve just uploaded the full articles to my press page at my www.karongrieve.com web site so you can take a look at them both.
While the Yours Yearbook is available in UK newsagents, Mingle is available from Stampington in USA and I beleive on news stands over there too.
So now it is your turn to pop on the kettle and settle back for a wee read on me.
