The first book--set to focus on indoor and outdoor grilling--is scheduled to release in May 2009.
Emeril is taking a bit of a gamble on his popularity and ability to sell books, though. HarperStudio splits the profits with the author and provides a "modest" advance as opposed to forking over huge advances (like they'd traditionally do with a big author like Emeril). The practice is also supposed to "help eliminate the costly practice of allowing booksellers to return unsold books" (Crain's)... like what was probably happening to Sandra Lee back in March
So this could be a great deal for Emeril (and Martha) if fans continue to buy those books up.
Buy will you be buying TEN more books by Emeril?
