Blog to Book: Meet an Editor and Learn About Publishing, from Concept to Completion

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For many bloggers who have spent months or years creating recipes, writing about food and restricted diets, learning food photography, and promoting their work, a book is the natural next step. Whether you choose to self publish or work with a publishing house, you want your book to be the best it can be—and I'd love to help. I'm an Associate Editor at The Experiment, an independent publishing company with a strong track record publishing health- and food-focused books (including Colette Martin's Learning to Bake Allergen-Free and forthcoming The Allergy-Free Pantry). There, I work with authors (many of whom are also bloggers) during all stages of the editorial process, from brainstorming a concept to developing a table of contents to fine-tuning sentences and checking facts to "packaging" the book with the perfect title and cover. Depending on what questions the group has, I would be happy to provide general editorial advice, discuss the publishing process and expand upon the relative merits of independent or "Big Six" publishers versus self-publishing.
