Welcome back to another Behind The Scenes of a Cookbook episode of the podcast. Today on the podcast I had the pleasure of interviewing Suzanne Fass. Suzanne is truly behind the scenes of cookbook production with her work as a copy-editor, proofer, and indexer. While her work may just land her name in the Acknowledgements section of a cookbook, Suzanne’s hand has touched the manuscripts and designed pages of many books with her expertise that ensures recipes are safe for the home cook and that indexes are thorough and complete. This interview covers Suzanne’s process for copyediting, working on editing in batches, making style sheets, and tips for cookbook writers in creating recipe titles for an index.
