Verrines: Sweet and Savory Parfaits Made Easy

I got it done.  It seemed like it took forever to get the formatting.  When you're doing something like this, I feel like I'm having an out-of-body experience.  It's overload. 

Barnes and Noble got it live in a couple hours.  Amazon mocked me and said 24 but I know it'll be more like 36 or 48.

Here's the blurb.  I hate writing them.  It's almost as bad as writing a synopsis which I just realized I will never have to do again in my life.  So YIPPEE!

Have you ever wanted just a little something to eat that was delicious and probably sinfully fattening? Don't we all? Some years ago the French invented verrines. A verrine is a sweet or savory delectable. Like the familiar parfait, it's served in a glass but a small one making it the ultimate in portion control. While most of us want to eat well, most of us aren't trained chefs and we rarely have access to exotic ingredients readily available elsewhere. VERRINES: Sweet and Savory Parfaits Made Easy makes it possible for everyone to create luscious treats quickly and with a budget in mind. You don't need a kitchen full of special tools, and you don't need expensive ingredients. You need some small glasses, a sharp knife and a trip to the grocery store. Whether you need intriguing appetizers for a party, a light lunch or dessert, you will find something in this book to help you achieve your goal.

So now I can devote my thinking to purchasing the wrong items on ebay (come on guy, you think I don't know what I'm talking about but French White isn't stovetop safe), fighting with the Amazon Marketplace sellers who didn't ship the book I really really need for my new book, and in general bothering everyone I come in contact with.  C'est la vie.

I think I will probably change the cover since I did this over a month ago and took a lot of photos that I...I'm fickle.  I can like you one day, Miss Photo, and the next day I've moved on emotionally.  Sorry.
