Media Notes

1. I wish this reporter had called me back to confirm slash copyedit the quote he attributes to me, and also to confirm that I live in Athens, which I don't. I like Simply Meats, and I said some nice things about it, but I don't think I said them quite that stupidly.

2. You can find my mug on the beta version of the new recipe resource Cookstr, alongside some very smart authors indeed (and probably some thick ones like me).

3. I learned yesterday that my proposal for a kind of unusual cookbook has been accepted, and if all goes well and contracts get signed it'll be published by Stewart, Tabori & Chang. This will be the first book that's really my own (that is, it was my idea) and that I actually have a stake in (it's not a work-for-hire job). Apparently I'm going to have months upon months to write it, which means it's going to be awesome and I'm not going to go completely insane. Whew.

I'll say it again: Congratulations and I am SO THRILLED for you, like times a million!

I'm so sorry you got misquoted (that's likely what happened, I'm guessing) from the R&B reporter. I think they do that a lot over there. What a disappointment! Bleah.

But YAY for cookbook-authoring!

g'day Liana!

I am so curious on how to actually get started in landing a book deal. I also have a unique cookbook idea, but don't know where to start. Any tips?
