300 Sandwiches Blogger Signs Huge Book
“300 Sandwiches” is about to become a book.
Via NYPost reports:
The Post’s Page Six reporter Stephanie Smith is going to turn her humorous blog into a book after signing with Random House’s new imprint, Zinc Ink — headed by David Zinczenko and Stephen Perrine.
“Steve and I are both longtime friends of Stephanie from her days covering the magazine business for Women’s Wear Daily,” said Zinczenko, a longtime editor-in-chief of Men’s Health and now consulting for Men’s Fitness through his Galvanized Brands consulting firm.
“So when she told us about her romantic, passionate, and very funny quest to make her boyfriend 300 sandwiches, our first reaction was, “That’s a book.”
Zinc Ink is a joint venture imprint of Galvanized Media and Random House, specializing in physical, emotional and spiritual health, as well as fitness, nutrition and personal success.
Smith became an overnight Internet sensation when she outed herself as the as the author of the 300 Sandwiches blog that she started in June 2012.
Her boyfriend, Eric Schulte, had been doing most of the cooking when she decided to try her hand in the culinary world.
“After I made him a sandwich — your basic turkey and swiss cheese — one day for lunch, he told me, “Honey, you’re 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring,” she said.
The anonymous blog launched shortly thereafter.
Smith said as of Tuesday, she was at 197 sandwiches. The book, which was brokered by William Morris Endeavor, is due out around Valentine’s Day, 2015.
