What, No “Sherry for the Cook” Joke?

julie-powell.jpgWhat’s Julie and Julia author Julie Powell been up to lately? She’s making skirt steak on YouTube, as part of a feature she’s writing for Food & Wine. She also worked on a roast leg of lamb, but describes that effort in her narration as “an excellent demo of how not to make a video,” as she managed to press STOP and RECORD at the wrong times. I dunno; I think it’s some nice “moment of Zen” footage of an oven…

Anyway, Julie is also one of mediabistro.com’s featured guests at our upcoming panel on how bloggers can land book deals. She’ll be joined by fellow authors Michael Malice, Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, and Robert Rummel-Hudson, along with Seal Press managing editor Laura Mazer and ICM agent Kate Lee, known for repping some of the more prominent bloggers. And blogger/journalist Rachel Kramer Bussel presides over the whole affair. Who knows what other New York bloggers, hoping to land their own deals, might show up in the audience?
