I’m happy to announce the new release of Will Write for Food: The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Blogs, Reviews, Memoir, and More, in its 2nd edition, by Dianne Jacob. At the end of this post, I’m giving away one copy for free!
For those of you already familiar with the previous edition – I know many of you already own it and will wonder why you should upgrade – you’ll appreciate this much expanded volume, which includes a HUGE chapter on blogging and social networking as they pertain to food writing. She’s also beefed up the other sections, interviewed countless new sources, and added updated information on the ever-changing world of food writing as it exists in this new-fangled Internet age. The new book is not only bigger, but far more relevant to today’s new media.
Says Dianne of the recent additions to Will Write for Food:
I interviewed the most successful food bloggers, writing a 17,000-word chapter on food blogging (about 70 pages double spaced) that will answer your questions, inspire you, and provide resources and insider information … In addition to the new chapter on blogging, the new edition of Will Write for Food incorporates tips on using social media as a freelancer and a blogger; updated info on book publishing, whether traditional or self-publishing; and updated info on the newer, more competitive freelancing market.
If you like the book, I recommend you also check out Dianne’s blog on food writing. She’s not only an excellent writer, but a wonderfully thorough teacher and consultant. I also interviewed her on Wasabimon not long ago about her cooking and blogging life.
