Yah-ba-dah-ba-doo! Not many things are more exciting than when a driver unloads pallets of brown boxes full of great promise in the form of shiny new books—my books!
The initial printing of Keep On Rolling! Life on the Lefse Trail and Learning to Get a Round arrived at Conrad Henry Press, and immediately 150 books (five boxes) went to one distributor, another 74 books were sold in Barnesville, Minnesota, at the rainy Potato Days, and another three boxes are out the door due to individual orders. A fast start, for which I am grateful.
I’m especially grateful for the early reviews from those who have gotten past the first impressions of the covers and the illustrations and the beautiful layout of the book and have started to read the 24 chapters. Two examples:
I’m loving it. Strong, interesting content. Creative. I’m thinking the recipes will be incorporated into Hart Lefsefest 2017! — Roxanne Hart, St. Paul.
Bra gjørt! Well done! The book is a great window into the life of lefse in the USA in 2017! I love all the colorful pictures! — Rev. Dennis Preston, Brandon, MN.
