Meet an author who outsold Harry Potter
KIM McCosker, the co-author of the international best-seller '4 Ingredients', will be at the Harry Bailey Memorial Library in Coffs Harbour on Friday at 11.30am to talk about the life-changing experience of penning Australia's biggest selling self-published book - and to share some of her yummy treats.
Since 2007, when the original '4 Ingredients' was rejected by every publisher in Australia, it has sold 2.5 million copies. In 2008, it was the biggest-selling book across all genres - even outselling 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'.
To date, Kim has released five more '4 Ingredients' branded cookbooks, launched '4 Ingredients' in the UK, Ireland and the USA, released a cookware range and developed an iPhone app that has had more than 35,200 downloads.
Kim will talk about the '4 Ingredients' journey and take part in an audience question and answer session at the event. She will even have time for a cup of tea and a chat afterwards.
With her latest book 'Cook 4 a Cure', Kim and the '4 Ingredients' team are hoping to raise $100,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Staff from Big W, a National Breast Cancer Foundation sponsor, will be at the Coffs Harbour event selling copes of 'Cook 4 a Cure' at a reduced price as a fundraiser.
Entry to the talk is free, but to secure your place, book online on the Library website at libraries.coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au through the Community Events section.
