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.
