Author Biography

In our last post, we started a dialogue on assembling a winning book proposal. The title page,table of contents and concept overview were addressed. In case you missed it, the link is: http://www.theoutdoorepicurean.com/2013/10/book-proposal-2/.

Author Biography is the next component of the book proposal. Guidelines of biographies should only include your culinary experience, your writing experience and you savvy business know-how. Remember, you do not need a culinary degree to write a cookbook. Honesty of your qualifications speaks volumes.

This section of the book proposal explains why you are qualified to write a cookbook. Your biography should describe your influence in the culinary world. If you have a website dedicated to food, your social media presence or a food blog, provide the link to your biography. Make it easy for the editor who is reading it.

The book proposal could include a list the cooking classes you might have taken at a community college. An lastly, demonstrate your abilities to write with examples.

A degree in Business or courses geared towards starting your business demonstrates your seriousness to the business of book writing. Remember, you are demonstrating your visibility in the food world.
Take care,
Margaret
