Writing and Selling a Winning Book Proposal


Many of us in the food blogosphere dream of writing and publishing our own cookbook or seeing our byline in glossy magazines. In the competitive marketplace of cookbook publishing, a tightly written and compelling book proposal is the link that sells a book idea. What does a winning book proposal look like? What are the components of the proposal? And how does one get the proposal in the hands of a discerning cookbook editor. At the International Food Blogger Conference in Portland, Oregon this August, award-winning cookbook author and writing instructor Diane Morgan explains these fundamentals and gives you all the tools for writing cookbook proposals that get noticed. Don't miss her session on Writing and Selling a Winning Book Proposal.

Diane has been involved in the world of food for more than 30 years. She is an award-winning cookbook author, freelance food writer, culinary instructor, and restaurant consultant. She is the author of seventeen cookbooks including her soon-to-be published cookbook, Roots: The Definitive Compendium with more than 225 Recipes. Her other titles include: Skinny Dips, The Christmas Table, The New Thanksgiving Table, Grill Every Day, Salmon: A Cookbook, Pizza, Delicious Dips, The Thanksgiving Table, Midnight Munchies, Cooking For The Week, The Basic Gourmet, The Basic Gourmet Entertains, and Dressed To Grill: Savvy Recipes for Girls who Play with Fire, all from Chronicle Books. In addition, Diane’s cookbook, Gifts Cooks Love, was written in conjunction with Sur La Table and was published by Andrews McMeel.

Diane has been a regular contributor to the Los Angeles Times food section and has written for Oprah’s “O” magazine, Bon Appetit, Fine Cooking, Cooking Light, Clean Eating, The Oregonian, Northwest Palate, and Edible Portland. She has appeared on theToday Show, ABC World News Now, CBS Early Show, The Food Network, Smart Solutions onHGTV, Seasonings onPBS, andGood Day Oregon.
