Bianco's pizza book
« on: August 11, 2013, 05:07:53 PM »
According to Amazon, Bianco's pizza book is due out September 14. It is yet untitled. Will it come out on time? Will he share all his secrets or will he hold back?  What do members think?

Amazon still lists Chris Bianco's untitled pizza book as being delivered around  September 14. However, a search on Amazon for "Chris Bianco" does not turn up any book by that author. So will the book arrive as scheduled or will it disappear and never see the light of day?

Probably isn't going to be out 9/13 - the publisher doesn't have it on the list of books to be released in the next 90 days.

Neither he nor his co-author show up on the publisher's list of authors either.

Thanks for the note. It seems a bit unusual that the book was first announced last December, untitled, 9 months in advance, and will now be overdue by at least 3 months.  And still no title.

Perhaps someone is trying to renegotiate?

All of which confirms the suspicion that signing a book contract takes a whole of a lot longer than baking a pizza in a brick oven.  :-D

True, but don't make the mistake of thinking you can negotiate for more time with a WFO.  :-D

Now it is official.  Thr Bianco book does not exist.  Amazon apologized for taking so long to come to this conclusion.

I read an interview with Bianco on this site recently  that his book is finished and would be published in the spring of 2015.

When I saw Chris in January in Phoenix, he told me that he was writing his book, that it should be out around the end of the year, and it would have his "secrets."  Which he says he doesn't have any secrets-that the real secret is to make a lot of pizzas.

It appears Chris Bianco is really going to write the book this time and it will be published in March of 2016.  Amazon will let you pre-order.

by Chris Bianco (Author)

It sounds like a good cook book and includes more than just pizza.

Just got a note from Amazon that delivery of Chris Bianco's book is being delayed. No new date given. Where have I seen this notice before?
