Exploring the Options and a Heartfelt Entreaty

Boxes of Vegan Lunch Box have been whisking their way around the country (and the globe!) There are now more and more locations to pick up your very own copy:
  • If you would like to pick up a copy of my book and give to an animal-friendly charity at the same time, check out the latest newsletter from Vegan Outreach. While supplies last, you can receive a free copy of VLB with your donation.

  • Speaking of animal-friendly charities, you can also buy a copy through the PETA Catalog and have part of your money benefit People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

  • Other resellers include Herbivore Store in Portland, OR; Cosmo's Vegan Shoppe; Lunch Matters in Australia; Three Little Figs in Boulder, CO; and Laptop Lunches (who are also featuring an interview with me in their latest newsletter).

  • Finally, if none of those small, wonderful, independent resellers appeal, VLB is now available through that behemoth of ecommerce, Amazon.com. We listed it ourselves earlier this morning, in order to make all you Amazon Lovers happy (I, myself, admit to a bit of an amazon addiction; the "one click" button, she is dangerous).

    And so here comes my Heartfelt Entreaty: please, please take a moment if you can to go to Amazon and say something nice about my book. Ratings and reviews on Amazon can make a huge difference, so I'm hoping some of you might take a moment to put in a friendly word. (Update: Amazon's search engine is working now. Thank you all so much for your kind words and wonderful reviews!!)

i love you and i love your blog!
i haven't ordered your book yet cuz i am broke but soon soon soon. i just wanted to let you know that i went to amazon.com and typed in the name of your book and it doesn't come up. when i follow your link i get to the book and 5 reviews but when i type in "vegan lunch box" in the books section (and just in amazon in general) i get other listings (vegan cupcakes, etc. and even a suggestion to type in your name) but i don't actually ever come across your book ??? maybe this is just a glitch as its recently listed but i thought i'd let you know in case you should contact amazon. you obviously had no trouble finding the listing but others might as i did......weird...just thought i'd let you know fyi..... PS thanks for being THE BOMB and helping me feed my fiance's lunch box and undoubtedly feeding our future children as well :)

I read your interview in the laptop lunch e-mail earlier today :-) Off to give a good review of the book (if I can figure it out--I've never done it before).

Pam said...

It was very easy to write a good review for your book. We absolutely love it. Thanks!

Wow, that's great! So many vendors! I will definately write an excellent review of the book-- which will not be hard to do at all because the book is wonderful.

Hi there. Your link to Lunch Matters in Australia is incorrect and doesn't work. It should be: http://www.lunchmatters.com.au/

Jennifershmoo said...

Oops -- thanks, I fixed it!

Thank you all SO MUCH for all the wonderful reviews!!! :-)

Kate said...

darn, I went to borders today to buy it with a 25 percent coupon off any book, but couldn't find it. Looks like I'll have to look somewhere here. :)

I got my copy yesterday and spent most of my evening reading it. Awesome! I left a 5-star comment for you on Amazon, too.

I can't wait to make my first lunch for work tomorrow!

I did too!

surya said...

A UK fan here: I can't find the book on the amazon.co.uk site. Is it only available on amazon.com? I can assure you that you've got plenty of fans in the UK, a lot of them (like me!) wanting to add your book to their wishlist for Christmas!

Jennifershmoo said...

Hi, Surya -- We don't have any immediate plans to list the book on amazon.uk; for right now it's only at amazon.com. But if you order the book through amazon.com we would be happy to ship to the UK.
