First-time author Jessica Murnane takes listeners through the roller coaster year she spent pitching and making her cookbook, One Part Plant. With interviews and recordings that span the entire process, Jessica documents the ins and out of how she got the deal and what it’s really like making a book – from working with an agent and publishing house to managing advance checks and having near meltdowns over deadlines, budgets, and more. And she does it all while navigating unbelievable (and very personal) twists and turns along the way.

Podcaster to podcaster- this rocks

I found One Part Plant form listening to an old Lively podcast and found I immediately related to the guest. Then after listening to her book creation process presented in such an honest way - I really appreciate how real and how many details she provides. As the co-creator of a podcast myself, mine is a true crime one called 22 Hours: An American Nightmare,’ I know how hard it is to edit and record all these bits to tell the story (and how tricky marketing in your daily life can be.) You can tell how much she cares and it comes through in the podcast. Great job!

why i like your mojo ,

One Part Plant

This was such an incredible gesture for Jessica to create - to share the high highs + extreme lows of creating + authoring + recipe testing + writing a book WHILE she was making that very book come to life.
I am contemplating writing an interior/style book and this 8 part podcast kind of blew my mind - the complexity of the process while also dealing with life - I loved every nuance, every insight, every freak out. To me, it seems just like a slice of life and made a tremendous amount of sense. JESSICA: you are AWESOME ~ thank you. Hoping our paths cross in CHARLESTON

I appreciate the openness and realness of this series. I feel like I know you, but also feel so much ore clued up on the reality of writing a book. Highly recommend listening to this one.
