In 2012, I participated in SheWrites title workshop. We submitted a title to a book or possible future book or books. We then commented on each title. I was surprised and delighted that the comments were so helpful to getting my book published.

When I submitted my first proposal for my first book, to my agent, she sold it within two weeks of sending it out. Actually she had offers from three major publishing houses. The concept was unique, however it was the title, and the photographs that grabbed their attention. I do cookbooks. St. Martin’s used the same title changing one word for the second book title. www.doggonegoodcookbook.com

 Just wanted to say thank you and could we do it again? I have a couple more cookbooks in the oven.
