How To Get A Free Signed Copy Of Latin American Paleo Cooking

I proudly renewed my personal website with my favorite safe makeup and skincare brand, Beautycounter, this month. It has been an honor to share these incredible high-performance and SAFE products with so many women (and a few men!) this past year, and to be a part of the bigger mission to get our antiquated laws updated so that ALL products sold in the U.S. are made with safer ingredients. 

It's quite shocking (and infuriating) that there are only 20 ingredients banned from personal care products and cosmetics in the U.S., while Europe is actually looking out for the safety of their citizens by banning over 1,300! Beautycounter has a "Never List" of over 1,500 known or suspected harmful ingredients you'll never see in our products....things like phthalates, parabens, BHA, PEG, sodium lauryl sulfate, toluene, triclosan, and formaldehyde donors. 

To celebrate my 1 year anniversary with Beautycounter and the release of my cookbook, I am offering a free signed copy of Latin American Paleo Cooking to everyone in the continental U.S. who places an order on my Beautycounter website for $100 or more (pre-tax, pre-shipping) between August 3rd and August 20th 2017. 

I will personally mail the signed copies on August 21st via USPS Media Mail, which can take from 2-10 days to arrive.

I made shopping with me easy peasy: just go to www.amandasbeautycounter.com, make sure you see "Latin American Paleo Cooking Release!" as the social, and click "start shopping" when you see my photo pop up! This is what you'll see....

How to get a custom designed bookplate for your pre-ordered copy

If you have already pre-ordered a copy, THANK YOU so much!! Every pre-order helps me out tremendously. I am closing in on #1 new release in International Cooking, Food, and Wine on Amazon (I'm about to overtake Anthony Bourdain, WHAT?!) but I really want to make it to at least the top 10 for Paleo and Gluten-Free, too! 

You know what else besides pre-orders really helps us authors out? Reviews on Amazon.

So, I am offering to mail a signed bookplate, custom designed by my husband (I'll share a preview soon once it's ready!) for you to stick in the front of your book, to everyone with a U.S. mailing address who leaves an honest review on Amazon by Tuesday, Sept 5th.

That gives you 2 full weeks to cook from the book, plus the long Labor Day Weekend to write your review.

To receive your free signed bookplate you must follow these instructions:

  1. Leave the review on the Amazon listing (click here). 
  2. After you leave the review, click on the title to open your review - the URL should begin with: www.amazon.com/gp/customer-reviews/
  3. Email latinpaleobook @ gmail.com with the subject line AMAZON REVIEW, the link to your review, and your U.S. mailing address for me to send the signed bookplate
  4. You must email before 11:59PM on 9/5/17 to receive your bookplate.

How To Get Free Beautycounter Samples

The first 20 people who email me at beautycounter @ thecuriouscoconut.com with their pre-order receipt will get their choice of a 5-pack set of tubes of either the Nourishing Essentials line (with an exfoliator, cream cleanser, AM cream, PM cream, and eye cream) OR the Rejuvenating Countertime line (all anti-aging with a cleanser, AM cream, PM cream, eye cream, and serum). 

The Nourishing Essentials are great for younger skin and for anyone with sensitive skin looking for superb moisturizing. 

The Rejuvenating Countertime collection is perfect for anyone who wants clinically-proven anti-aging products to fight fine lines and wrinkles, improve hydration, and bring a more youthful appearance. 

How To Get Your Pre-Order Gift PDF

After thinking about what kind of special pre-order gift I could create that would bring tons of added value to your purchase, I realized that adding a handful of extra recipes wasn't really the answer, especially since the whole point of buying a print cookbook is so that you don't have to use a device to read an eBook!

So, I decided to do something that I wish I could have included in the print book itself, but couldn't due to the format that Page Street uses: a comprehensive meal plan using the recipes from the book

This book is designed to have you use leftovers to create totally new meals (so that in reality, you get dozens of options beyond the 80+ recipes written in the book). 

I wanted to make it as easy as pie (or tres leches cake? teehee!) for you to navigate the book and truly have it become a trusted sidekick in your kitchen, so I'm finishing up these meal plans for you to be able to work from. 

Everyone who pre-orders the book can get this meal plan! Follow these steps:

  1. Pre-order the book online from your favorite seller: Amazon | Books-A-Million | Barnes & Noble | IndieBound | Book Depository |  Amazon.co.uk 
  2. Take note of your order #
  3. Add your name and email to this list below
