Delissimon - Made With Love. A Collection of Sweets Treats

This is possibly my most exciting post yet.

My very first ever book is done. Finished.

Here, look!

This has been an immense project as I have made the recipes, baked, styled, photographed and edited and typeset the ENTIRE thing all by myself. I had help from two amazing friends who gave me their time to edit and proof read for me (thank you Emma and Ash!!) but otherwise its all been me. The reason it had to be me only is because this is my final portfolio to hand in for my photography diploma. This is what almost two years of studying has brought me to and I'm so so pleased with the result. 
I'm also exhausted! 

Anyway I'm trying to find a way to make this available for purchase as I've had an OVERWHELMING amount of requests for a copy (thank you everyone who has requested one or more! Its unbelievably and wonderfully uplifting!).
The only problem I have is that it is currently really expensive to print it.
So I don't expect people to buy it at this price.
I have plans to print it via a New Zealand publishing company but this may take longer than expected. So you might have to wait a wee bit to have it in your actual hands - but it will be worth it!!

At least I can officially say I'm a published author. How cool is that?!!
