Karen – I’d love to write a cheapkate food/cookbook, and some day I think I will. The problem is that right now my publisher and agent think it’s too narrow and would cast me as a “food writer” rather than a broader lifestyle and personal finance writer. I appreciate what they’re saying, although I’d eventually like to write a number of books on specific topics like cooking/food (e.g. cheapskate travel, cheapskate homes, etc.), so I’ll just have to see how things evolve.
