Top 5 Lessons Learned Writing Cookbooks – Lesson 3

This a segment from Top 5 Lessons Learned Writing Cookbooks – a piece that I wrote and read aloud at Litquake 2011 at San Francisco’s Mission Cheese.


Lesson 3:

After you’ve bought 137 copies of all of my books, please buy the following: Recipes into Type: A Handbook for Cookbook Writers and Editors, and Dianne Jacobs’ deeply-loved Will Write for Food: The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Blogs, Reviews, Memoir, and More.

Note that I don’t own either one of these, because I didn’t learn about them until it was too late, and it would just be too painful to learn now what I should have known then. Please, learn from my mistake and buy them now.
