I should have listened a bit more closely to the stern warnings of almost every person I know who has written a book.
“It’s more work than you think it can be.”
“You’ll gain 10 pounds.”
“You’ll miss your regular life.”
OK, alright, I admit that these are mostly from one end of the author spectrum but they still ring true: Writing and photographing a cookbook is a challenge and takes dedication and hard work.
It’s also a hell of a lot of fun!
Now that my book, On A Stick!, has been out a little over a month, I can almost sit back and let out a sigh of relief. What started in Spring 2010 is now on bookshelves all over the country, displayed just in time for summer cooking. And yes, I’m proud that it’s done and am delighted by the fun people are finding in its pages because it’s true: Food on a stick has that built-in fun factor!
