order your cookbook

The cookbook is available as a preorder ONLY. We won’t be ordering extra copies, so get yours today. We are still in the proofreading process. Books will be shipped in about 90 days.

Each cookbook costs $12. I was hoping to keep the cost under $15, and I’m so glad we were able to do that! Shipping is available worldwide. I apologize for the higher rates to other nations. International shipping rates have increased in the USA. We are charging actual rates and for some countries, the rate we are charging is lower than the actual rate and Determined to Shine is making up the difference for you.

There is no limit to the number of copies you may order. Order your cookbook now:

We’re also offering an ebook option! This is great for those who don’t want to pay shipping or who simply prefer using an ereader. eBooks also need to be preordered as it will pay for the ebook production fees. You will be receive a PDF copy via email when the cookbooks are received. Your purchase is for ONE ebook only – if you wish to “gift” an ebook, you will need to purchase an additional ebook for that person. We ask that you do not share the file outside of your immediate household out of respect for Determined to Shine and all contributors. eBooks are $10. Order your ebook here.
