Don't cross 'em.
The wiry gang over at the Austin Food Blogger Alliance play hard ball, and now they're getting in the cookbook business. We can only imagine the smoke-filled backroom where the negotiations with their publisher took place.
Ringleader Addie Broyles chomping on a giant cigar "here's how it's gonna play out-see"-sounding just like a young Edward G Robinson. Publishing execs cowering, wondering at life choices they'd made that led them to this juncture.
We recommend you buy several of these books. And if you run into an alliance member just look at the ground and keep right on walking. It'll keep you safe.
