Hank Shaw the blogger scores a book deal

Congratulations to Hank Shaw, whose "Hunter, Angler, Gardener Cook" blog has led to a book deal. It has been a breakout year for Shaw, who calls the Sacramento area home. He was recently nominated for a James Beard Foundation award for best food blog.

He didn't win, but he got plenty of attention. Now he has a contract to write a book. Here's what he told the readers of his blog:

I signed with Rodale Press, my editor is Pam Krauss and the book is tentatively slated for release in the first part of 2011. The working title is "Honest Food: Finding the Forgotten Feast."

We wish him plenty of success in the new venture. Judging by the work on his blog and the audience he has attracted in a relatively short period, it's going to be a well-received book.

On October 14, The Sacramento Bee will temporarily remove commenting from While we design the upgrade, we encourage you to tell us what you like and don't like about commenting on and other websites. We've heard from hundreds of you already and we're listening. Please continue to add your thoughts and questions here. We also encourage you to write Letters to the Editor on this and other topics.
