Welcome back to another episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. In this episode of the podcast, I discuss the difference between cookbook writing and cookbook publishing. Cookbook writing is a solitary act and involves a person writing a book around a single topic. They think of an idea, they decide who they can help or who their ideal reader is, and they create content for the book. Then they work on getting the book published. Publishing is the business of preparing books for sale. The business model for publishing is book sales. The publishers pay authors advances/royalties and count on writers and authors to provide content for their books. The 3 main functions of publishing houses are the editing of the manuscript, preparation of the manuscript for design, book design, book production, and the marketing and sales of a book.
