"Writers imagine themselves as travel writers, children's writers, humor writers, and so on. But a food writer? I'd never pondered this one - didn't need the calories. Make Money as a Food Writer in Six Lessons is simple, precise, clear cut and remarkably organized enticing any writer to consider the food arena. I caught myself looking forward to the Bright Ideas! notes in each chapter. The common sense advice in Pamela White's comments gives the reader smart homework to aid the learning process. If you've considered food writing before, get this book. If you haven't, give it a read. You might be as surprised as I was at how writing about tasty morsels can enable a writing career." - C. Hope Clark, Editor of FundsforWriters.com and The Shy Writer: An Introvert's Guide to Writing Success.
