Wow, publishing a book takes a really long time.
We’ve learned a lot creating Eat Guides: Barcelona, our first of the Eat Guides series in Spain. Blood (paper cuts), sweat, and tears….and many good meals later, Eat Guides is ready to zip into your Kindles courtesy of Amazon!

Don’t have a Kindle? Like to feel paper between your fingers? Me too sometimes. Try the PDF version of Eat Guides: Barcelona, which you can buy here on Sellfy.com and then print. You can print it all, or print just the pages you plan to take with you on your trip to Barcelona. You can also read the PDF version on any laptop/PC/Mac.
So what’s Eat Guides: Barcelona all about, anyway?
Eat Guides: Barcelona is about good food. Too often travelers in Barcelona end up at mediocre restaurants eating overpriced meals. As locals living in the city, we’ve been there, and wanted to do something about it. Eat Guides: Barcelona features forty of our favorite places, spotlighting eateries and bars we have tried and tested many times. We’re not food snobs. We’re not chefs. We’re two people who love to eat and drink. We rarely order a glass, preferring the bottle. We always get appetizers. Often, we’re the last table to leave.
Our aim is to offer a little something for everyone. We cover high-end venues with the same affection as the cheapo mom-and-pop joint. The majority of our recommendations are affordable restaurants for the average traveling Joe. We focus on regional Spanish and Catalan restaurants in our guide, but you’ll also find international options serving Japanese, Indian, Thai, American, Italian, and more. We know what a drag it can be to travel with food allergies or as a vegetarian, so we’ve selected a few spots that cater to these folks, too. We believe that everyone deserves to eat well, no matter your budget, restrictions, or beliefs.
Our guide is informal and personal, offering more than a blurb and a street address. These are our experiences and our stories from chowing down in Barcelona. We hope they give you insight to our lives here, while inspiring you to taste and savor all the Catalan capital has to offer.

Can we ask you a favor?
If you buy Eat Guides: Barcelona (and you SHOULD!) then leave us a review on Amazon. We’d love the feedback, and since we’ve just launched there aren’t many reviews up yet. Yours might be the first. How exciting!
We promised more than Amazon, and let’s face it, not everyone is an Amazon fan…Eventually the guide will also be out on GooglePlay, Nook, Kobo, PagePusher, iBooks, Scribed, Copia, Gardners Books, Baker & Taylor, and eSentral. There’s been a little delay that has something to do with deciding not to work with BookBaby.com, which was a mind-numbing experience. More on that some other day, in some other post, when enough time has passed for it all to be ‘funny’.
For now just know that Nook, Kobo, PagePusher, iBooks, Scribed, Copia, Gardners Books, Baker & Taylor, and eSentral are all on the way, but we’re starting out with Amazon. We’ll also let you know when there’s a paperback version available.

Or if you’re based somewhere else check your own version of Amazon, as we’re all over the place!
Thanks for your patience and supporting Eat Guides.
Now let’s eat!
