View Full Version : My book - questions?
04-01-2005, 09:19 AM
ok guys, im reprinting the book. Wow! i thought it would take a lot longer to go through 5000 but i guess not! So, i wanted to ask if you guys now of any mistakes. (im not asking for how to redo the whole book, i know im opening myself up here!) But just LITTLE mistakes like in the recipes section - like how i say to top the pecan pie with walnuts instead of pecans, etc... Or a spelling mistake.
I have a few people who have so generously wrote me and listed a few grammatical errors, spelling, etc as they have gone through the book and I believe they were all editors so it they easily caught it stuff. So if you want to add your 'catches' i would so appreciate it.
Thanks so much guys! And the index is getting done over so i will be giving anyone who already has the book a copy of that as well if you want it. it probably wont be for another two months before its corrected and printed and the new one is out. but ill keep you posted on that.

That's exciting, Alissa! Now I'll have to re-read my copy to see if I catch anything.
I hope the next 5000 go just as quickly!

Can you change the cover picture. This time with you sitting on a giant avocado and holding a half a tomato in the palm of your hand?

I did notice in the journal posted in the book (I forget the woman's name and the book is out in the car- I take it everywhere!) that there are many apostrophes missing in her text. I didn't know if it was lost in translation from HTML or if it was printed as such because that is the way she originally wrote it.

Okay here's a serious one - I don't know if it's an error but I ommitted the ingredient because it sounded funny.
PAGE 379 - Crepes
2 teaspoons bragg liquid aminos in the sweet filling?
Also, I added lemon juice to the banana puree to help keep the color, it added a nice tangy flavor to it.

I am admiting up front that I am no help okay -- now will you be adding anymore recipes? Will the current owners of the book receive them -and hey, I like the book, so I am okay!
04-01-2005, 10:43 PM
Sharon yes, thats correct. That crepe recipe is the best!!!!! Adding lemon for color, hmmm, i would think it would taste too tangy?
Sweet lips - LOL! Nope no more in this one, i just found some minor errors so wanted to know if anyone else did. Ill keep you posted on when the new one comes out though!

No problems here except a little confusion with the index but you already knew that. I have read MANY raw food books and this is the only one that made me think I could actually do this even though I know in my heart that it is right for me. Thank-you for that.
The only thing is how big the book is. Alot of wonderful information that finally convinced me. Someone else was talking about taking it every where with them. I am close because I keep it near me too. I wonder if the recipes could be separate so they could be used without having the whole book out. An insert that comes out? No problem taking the whole thing with me though. People will love it just the way it is.

Hello Alissa -- Right off the bat, thanks for putting out a wonderful and highly informative book. Of course, I am already enjoying it very much. Anyway, I am not sure if this is doable, but can you possibly come up with some type of summary as to what corrections have been made in your first book? This is, of course, in addition to your making the revised index available for our persual. I simply thought it would be helpful for us to know the mistakes, especially with your recipes, so that we can make corrections with the book already in our possession. Please know that it is only a suggestion. What do you think? Happy raw food eating! Wayne

I don't know if this was the case for anyone but mew, but the only thing about the book I wished was a little different was the 30 day menu. I guess maybe it is because I am so used to the slimfast etc menu plans and having someone tell me exactly what to do when with what I have bought, but I felt like "OK, and then what?" when I read that portion of the book....

lallen13 - ya i know its a biggie! Ive thought about making small ones that come out of this book but i need to think more about that. Ill keep you posted in that!
HydroRaw- yes i will make the index available to everyone who already has the book. i will find out now how to make the corrections available also, thats a good idea! I dont think there are too many for the actual recipe ingredients though mostly spelling etc...
spin_ducky - im not sure what you mean, can you explain more? if you mean telling people "make this for breakfast make this for lunch, etc.. I didnt want to do that because i felt it was unrealistic to have someone make a meal 3 times a day and that they would be in the kitchen all day long. So instead i laid it out like how i teach it. Day one: make 5-6 things, desserts, meals, dressing and then eat that for 3-4 days. Then on day 3 or 4 make another 4-5 things and have that for the next 3-4 days, etc... The beauty of raw food is that you dont have to eat at certain times or count or weigh anything. You can eat when your hungry, so im trying to get people to think along those lines.
Ok, just read your post again. Do you mean once you buy the food you dont know what to do with it? Everything on that list for that week is food that you will need for those recipes for that particular week.
Sorry if im misunderstanding. Let me know if this explains it or if you mean something else.

Maybe you could actually add that paragraph to the book to explain why you don't have a 30-day specific menu telling people what to make for breakfast, lunch, etc?

Well, it actually does say all that on the following pages i think. I talk about what to eat for breakfast and how to plan the day and what to eat and when. Ill read that over though with these thoughts in mind and maybe ill see it in a different light! Thanks!
