ADVERTISERS AND PUBLICITY PROFESSIONALS:
Thank you so much for your interest! And thank you for checking here first instead of sending me a random email. Here are some of my current policies/thoughts (as of 1/5/15):
Advertising on my site: I am currently not interested in advertising on my site. I might be interested at some point in advertising for a monthly fee (not for a one time fee or a thing or for “exposure.”).
Developing a recipe using your product for “exposure.”: No thank you. I am a cookbook writer, which means that I write recipes as my paying job. Please think of me as a professional, not a game show contestant.
Participating in your giveaway: No thank you. I do very, very few giveaways and those that I do I choose and pay for myself.
Reviewing things: No thank you. I don’t like doing reviews–even in exchange for a freebie or in exchange for page views on your site. Please assume that I’m not interested in reviewing your product.
Reviewing things for your site for “exposure”: No thank you.
Having Guest Bloggers/Posts on my site: No thank you. I produce all of my content. I do not accept guest posts.
Link Exchanges: No thank you. I don’t do random link exchanges.
Participating in your contest: No thank you. I don’t do contests. I am a professional writer and recipe developer, not a game show contestant.
Replies from me: If you do not hear from me within 72 hours of contacting me, please take that as a polite decline.
FOR READERS OF MY SITE:
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take a minute to do your homework before asking me a question. I know it’s easier for you to just ask me, but it takes a lot of time and effort on my part to answer the same question over and over again. See if your question is answered in the below links before sending me a note.
* Questions on how to troubleshoot recipes or substitute ingredients? Check the Baking Tips/FAQs page before emailing me. Many of your questions will be answered there.
Have a recipe you’d like me to create or adapt? Feel free to ask, but I can’t guarantee that I can do this or do it on your timeline.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please don’t make me jump through hoops to answer you. I won’t be able answer to email addresses that require me to login and answer a bunch of questions to prove I’m not a spammer.
