Sour cream tart




I’ve been busy with my books as of late. I have been getting them into stores across Melbourne and I am pleased to say they are doing very well. I have even had some repeat orders from different store, which is so incredibly exciting.h

It’s a lot of leg work and chasing up , after all I am a one man band at the moment, but I am so proud to see the books in some absolutely amazing stores.

The books have been received really by the shops I have approached to stock them. I find it so hard walking in to a shop and showing them my work, being such a shy person doesn’t help in the slightest. However the more I do it the easier it becomes, especially with most stores saying they will take them. It really does build your confidence and make you want to keep slogging away at it.

So let me introduce you to a selection of the stores that have supported my crazy dream and are currently stocking A Piece of Cake throughout Melbourne.

– Coventry Bookstore in South Melbourne

– Sun Bookshop in Yarraville

– Books in Print in Melvern

Story Bird in Essendon

La dee dah in Essendon

Maison in Essendon

Readings in Carlton

Readings in Melvern

– Readings in Hawthorne

– The Deli in Coburg

Readings in St Kilda

Dymocks bookstore in Melbourne City

I big chocolate coated thank you must also go out to the amazing friends, family and strangers that have brought a book directly from me or through the blog, your support means so much, I truly value your believe in me and can’t thank you enough. I didn’t know how people would embrace my book, so it fills me with complete joy to know you have supported my crazy dream as well. Thank you.

If you haven’t got a book yet and would like one, its just a click to the right :)


Have a wonderful week.

      Thanks Dina, yeah its creamy and you can slightly taste the sour cream. The strawberries give it a nice sweetness.

    I am so excited for you about the book sales!!! That is quite the list of bookstores! My gf in Melborne doesn’t cook but maybe I can persuade her to go pick one up anyways :-)

    This tart looks fabulous! Something about the sour cream filling just sounds so perfect for today. On a side note, I don’t know why this post didn’t show up in my Bloglovin’ feed. :-/ I feel like they are slacking and I’m missing your posts!

      Thank you so much for your support, its really wonderful to have a fan so far away, on the other side of the world. I am certain we will meet one day, and I will give you the book in person :) I will have to figure out whats happening with blog lovin I wasn’t aware it was doing that. I will have to see if its something I might have done, as I have been changing the blog around a bit.
      Have a great day.
