Welcome to the Party, Pal



Hello everyone. As you can see, Cooking Comically is back. In force.


Starting today there will be a new recipe every Thursday of every week.


I know a lot of you are wondering where I’ve been and I’m sure some of you assume that I published the book and am now swimming in money and/or the Caribbean. This is not what happened. There simply isn’t much money (none for me yet, in fact) in traditional publishing unless you sell a ton of books. And I didn’t. I had to get a full time job afterward to keep myself afloat and start paying off student loans. That paired with a multitude of very personal issues that I’m not willing to discuss with the internet at large, I ended up in a not-so-great place to produce anything of value. I lost heart for a while, but I never stopped thinking about Cooking Comically. I should not have gone completely dark. That was a mistake and I apologize.


Over the past year I worked through the things that had me in the mind-dumpster, dug a little ways out of my hole, and am now in a good place to resume the shenanigans and give Cooking Comically the attention I’ve always wanted to.


I would like to thank everyone who, over the past year, has sent kind messages of support. You’ve asked how I was, where I was, if I was ok, hoping that I would return, etc. Even if I didn’t respond, it really helped. I promise.


Lastly, but also importantly, you’ll notice I’m now running a Patreon campaign. This is my bid to make Cooking Comically something that can sustain itself and maybe even me. I encourage you to check it out and consider supporting me. It would mean a lot and there might even be things in for you that you’d like. 


So. I’m back. Enjoy the show.

    Hey, man, glad to see you back! Sorry to hear the last several months were so down – hope this thing works out a little better for you soon. When not dead broke, I’ll try for a copy of your book, and/or a donation when I can.

    Glad to see you’re still alive. I’ve always loved your website, I even bought your book when it came out and still use it to this day. Sad to hear you haven’t seen any profit from it. Definitely going to send you some monetary support because of this.

    Keep up the great work!
