It’s official: I have a book deal! Amazon Publishing, in all their worldly wisdom, has decided to give this insectivorous ink-slinger the opportunity of a lifetime: to tell the story of entomophagy as I know it.
If all goes according to plan, I’ll get to visit experts and projects in Europe, Asia, Latin America, and various places across the US. I’ll keep you posted via this blog, my Facebook page, and Twitter as things progress. It should be a pretty interesting journey.
The book won’t be available for awhile, since I haven’t even finished writing it yet, but if you’d like to be added to a mailing list for updates, releases, and other fun, secret, book-club-only stuff, email me at GirlMeetsBugTheBook@gmail.com. Also, if you have any questions, tips, suggestions, or just plain writing advice :), send ’em there, too.
Thanks as always for your support and interest in this not-so-niche-anymore subject.
Laughing’s good. Will there be a print copy some day?
Yes indeed – print and maybe even audio! Early 2014 is what they tell me.
Does this book contain recipes or rather the history of entomophagy? I am interested in the gastronomy of edible insects. Could you tell me where can I find literature about it?
This book contains all of the above. Not to toot my own horn, but I think you’ll find it helpful. It’s a great primer on all things edible insects, contains recipes and farming instructions, an edible bug guide, and a reference section on other resources.
