Writing a book is a fantastic accomplishment. Selling it is another story. Gina Laiso, Integrita Productions, and KAC D6 member, did the cover design, book design, & layout for this hot-selling cookbook for the authors who live in New York (yes Zoom has its advantages). Gina has a tough life. She's busy in the middle of the night packaging books for the mail carrier to pick up the next day. The second printing of 1,500 books is selling out. Congrats to Gina! Check out this video of yesterday's Rachel Ray TV Show. If you don't blink you can see a photo of Gina.
