Indian for Everyone preorder promotions from author Anupy Singla

This October, Agate Surrey is very pleased to be publishing Indian for Everyone, the new book by Anupy Singla, author of the bestelling The Indian Slow Cooker and Vegan Indian Cooking. Below is a message from Anupy regarding preorder promotions that she is sponsoring:

We're just five months away from the official release of my third book, Indian for Everyone, and I predict that this is going to be an amazing summer. Why? Because we are going to party--Indian style. There's a lot to celebrate.

Free books: I'll be giving away a free signed copy of either The Indian Slow Cooker or Vegan Indian Cooking for every 500 new "Likes" on my Facebook Fan page and on my blog as well.

Free spice blends: I'm also so excited to start giving away samples of my latest product offering--custom Indian spice blends from Chana to Tandoori Masala. You are going to love them. I'll be running promotions on them soon. In the meantime, you are a click away from experimenting with them.

Free gorgeous PDF: My favorite promotion of all? The gorgeous PDF my publisher and I have put together for all of you just for pre-ordering my third book. It's yours--just for pre-ording. (Thank you to everyone that already has--you will receive an email with your exlusive password next week.) In this eleven-page spread you'll get a one-pager of your key Indian spices with pictures, the same for legumes, a tutorial on sprouting, and some extra recipes that have not made it into any books yet. I also included a delicious mango lassi recipe. You can get this previous only by pre-ordering, so get to it!

I realize, after dedicating the last five years to writing cookbooks and recipes, that it takes a village to help spread the word and sell books. YOU are all a part of my village. I hope you will all help by purchasing at least one copy of Indian for Everyone...or maybe even two. Its release (October 2014) is timed perfectly for the holidays and Diwali. It's hardcover with pictures that will just blow your mind. They are absolutely gorgeous--not to mention functional. I have step-by-step process shots on how to make roti, makki ki roti, and samosas. This WILL be your go-to Indian cookbook.

So, go ahead. Get clicking, so I can get cooking on some more promos and more fun ways to get us both in the kitchen prepping gorgeously delicious Indian meals at once healthy and authentic.
