Hi Mohana,
I could review your book for my website at Garden and Hearth if you'd like to send me a copy. I mostly deal with veggies but healthy living would fit right in. My site address is in my signature here. If you're interested send me a PM.
And welcome to DC!

Howdy, Mohana-what an interesting name----does it translate into anything in English? Good luck on your book. What is its focus?

When I go to our book store (Borders) and check out all of the new cookbooks (my favorite thing to do), most of the really nice books are priced anywhere from $24 dollars and up. So it sounds about right. Good luck with your book.
