Do You Want To Write A Cookbook?
Note: This post may contain affiliate links. Thanks for supporting COOKtheSTORY!
Today I’m giving away a copy of the new book Desserts in Jars. I’m also sharing details that will be really exciting to anyone who wants to write a cookbook.
Update: The giveaway has ended.
So, do you want to write a cookbook?
I know I do.
But I also know that I’m not ready yet. You see, over the past couple of years I’ve had the chance to go conferences where I’ve heard editors, publishers, agents and authors speak about the process. It’s a really really really big deal.
One of the speakers I heard even likened writing a cookbook to having a child. Not to going through labor, but going through the nine months of pregnancy, the labor, the birth and then the raising of the little babe through to toddlerhood.
Well, I’m in the midst of actually raising young children right now and I know that I can’t have another child (even a paper one) right now.
But I will do it one day.
And I bet you can too. If you’ve ever thought that you’d like to write a cookbook the best thing you can do right now, as far as I can tell, is fortify yourself with information.
That’s why I’m involved in a giveaway that could help you write your own cookbook. The giveaway is for a ticket to the International Association of Culinary Arts annual conference in Chicago in 2014 plus $500 towards accommodations while there AND a meeting with a cookbook editor to talk about your cookbook idea.
If you’ve ever thought that you’d like to write a cookbook, this is your chance to find out everything you need to know, to form a plan and to get some honest feedback on your ideas.
This giveaway is sponsored by The Harvard Common Press as part of their promotion of the new Desserts in Jars cookbook by Shaina Olmanson. I have a copy of that very beautiful book to giveaway for you today. This book really is special. It has a defined niche, well-developed recipes, good writing and scrumptious pictures. Everything we future cookbook authors imagine our books will be.
So do enter to win the cookbook below. I hope it inspires you. And also, click here to enter to win the future cookbook author’s dream prize.
One more thing to mention, in honor of Desserts in Jars, we’re having a fun PinChatLive event on Sunday August 18th at 8pm Eastern on this Pinterest board. Get all the information about what a PinChatLive is and about the Desserts in Jars event here.
