What inspired you to write your book?
It was something I had never tried, and when we found the recipes, I decided to give it a shot. I have a Kindle and decided that format was the best way to go.
About your Book:
I collected 30+ cake recipes from my Mother-in-laws recipes after she passed away. My Mother-in-Law was a Texas Lady and a great cook and is reflected in the 30+ cake recipes.

What formats are your books in
How do you see writing a food/cookbook as different from writing other genres of books?
You can’t just rely on the internet or your imagination for content. You either need to be a cook and try the recipes yourself or have a good source such as I did.
What advice would you give to someone that is thinking about or currently working on a food book or cookbook
I would make sure if I am going the ebook route that I had a good editor that can publish in the ebook format (.mobi)
How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
I published through Amazon and I chose that venue because they have the most books and the most traffic (Customers)
I am a computer geek and have published two other books on computer technology.
