    Senin blogun icin ben de oy verdim. Umarim kazanirsin. Kitabinin yayinlanacak olmasina cok sevindim. Insallah cok yakinda yayinlanir cunku anneme guzel bir hediye ariyorum.

    Buyuk ihtimalle haberdarsin ama cok ozel tariflerinin oldugu ingilizce bir yemek kitabini digital olarak kendin de yayinlayabilirsin. Su aralar self-publishing hem cok kolay hem de tutuluyor. Amazonda kitabini 2.99 ila 9.99 dolar arasinda sattigin surece fiyatin yuzde yetmisi sana kaliyor. Ve en iyi yani, amazonda satmak icin amerikada yasiyor olman gerekmiyor. Ayrintilari bu baglantida bulabilirsin.

    Sadece bir tavsiye

    Donna, irepkrep, mazz – Thanks a lot for your support!

    Melissa – You have an amazing blog. Looking through your posts for the past half an hour and I’m already a fan. Adding it to my reader right now! Thanks for the vote.

    Serpil – Tavsiye için çok teşekkürler. Yurt dışındaki okurlar için çok iyi bir fikir. Tek sorun gönderim. Onu çözebilirsem muhakkak Türkçe versiyonu Amazon’a koymak isterim. İngilizce versiyon için ise bu şekilde bir uygulama yapmak istemem. Vakti geldiğinde, ilgilenen bir yayınevi bulursam üzerinde detaylı bir şekilde çalışıp yayınlamak isterim.

    Hi Cenk
    Hello there.
    Here I am in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
    It’s late. Close to midnight.
    Just got home after dinner with a friend.
    The meal was pretty dismal.
    But the company and conversation great.
    Turn on my iPad and did a quick search on food blogs.
    And yours came out top!
    So there!
    Am very impressed by your photos and copy.
    It’s very inspiring to read about your success.
    Being great at what we do requires dedication,commitment and hard work.
    And it shows !
