Some Initial Success for "Batter! Broil!! Baste!!!"
FYI ... While it isn't a contract (yet), I have been contacted back by three publishers for "Batter! Broil!! Baste!!! The Comic Creators Cookbook," but I'm getting ahead of myself. After putting in more changes two nights ago, I spent last night from 12-3am sending out emails to publishers and companies that I found on a Web site list ... This morning there was an editor from Scribner (a division of Simon and Schuster) who wants me to send an official proposal, then came in an email from an editor at Conde Nast who said, "Please send me a manuscript, or whatever you have at this point. Many thanks," ... and then I got a phone call from another editor who said he rarely calls back from email submissions but made an exception for B! B!! B!!! His company published the book "Taking Woodstock" which recently became a movie by Ang Lee ...
More will happen, for sure. It's only 12 hours since the emails went out.
