So where have I been for so long?

I know it’s been too long. I mean how can I claim to have a blog if I am not blogging. It’s not that I have been too busy to write. It is that I have been writing, full time. That big manuscript that I handed in  was too big, too unwieldy and in need of editing and reorganizatiion.  So back to the writing desk  After 6 months of working with a special editor,  the manuscript is now, finally, with my editor at UC Press for the next go around. After a bit more work. the manuscript will be sent to peer reviewers for their comments and suggestions.   Hopefully for some words of praise too.

If all goes as planned, the book will be out in a year. That is right. A year. It is like giving birth to a whale.

As you know, I have written 26 cookbooks BUT writing a history for an academic press is a whole other ballgame.  I have learned a great deal in the process. And I  hope that after all this very heard  brain breaking work, we will all think this has been worth it. 

So I apoligize for my seeming silence. I have not really been silent but  these days it is books before blogs.
