About your Book:
This book is a guide for College Freshmen (and beyond) full of tips and advice for avoiding the famous “Freshman 15” pounds of weight gain their first year in college. It focuses on diet and general health and exercise tips to help freshmen establish routines that will help them get a solid start in their first year of college, not only physically but also academically as our daily routines are intimately intertwined with performance whether academically or professionally. Much of this information is applicable not only for freshmen, but for anyone pursuing similar goals.

What formats are your books in
How do you see writing a food/cookbook as different from writing other genres of books?
Food/Cookbooks are much different from the fiction genre in their use of facts and real life experience. Some fiction books are written based on real life stories but generally utilize plenty of creative writing, while food/cookbooks usually do not.
Advice to someone that is thinking about or currently working on a food book or cookbook
Just do it! If you have been thinking about or are currently working on a food book or cookbook, the only way you will achieve your goal is to take one step at a time moving towards that goal. I (Anne) tend to over analyze most decisions and I have learned to bounce ideas off of others in networking groups so that my over-analytical mind does not cause a roadblock to finishing the process I started.
How did you decide how to publish your book and where is it published through:
I did some research and we ended up going with the Amazon Kindle platform. We have published before and used Amazon Kindle for the first publication. It was a successful experience so we decided to go that route again. Amazon offers a unique promotional program that helps get your book more exposure, which I felt was most important as a new author.
