    My galleys are here!

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | October 14, 2007

    Fortune Cookie Chronicles Galleys

    Got an email from my editor who said my galleys have arrived as of Friday. He says they look great. Now am in the process of compiling a spreadsheet of journalists, food bloggers, and other people who would take an interest in a book on how Chinese food is All-American.

    They don’t have to write about it, they just have to 1) be interested enough in the topic to at least flip through it and 2) be chatty. This is apparently how the book industry builds buzz.

    This, by the way is the original hardcover mockup. I liked the bigger chopsticks on the spine.

    Supplies are limited. (it is actually more expensive to make a bound galley than it is to make a hardcover book, because of scale) If you feel strongly that you must have one (or a real book), send an email to jenny8lee (at)
