Webinar: 5 Mistakes of Aspiring Cookbook Authors
Webinar: 5 Mistakes of Aspiring Cookbook Authors

If you know me, you probably know that I believe a cookbook is the ultimate way to reach an audience you want to teach about food or cooking. In a kitchen, with tangible items like knives, cutting boards, and ingredients, a cookbook fits. And your audience, who’s hungry to learn about what you teach, or hungry for your nutrition message, is the perfect buyer for your your cookbook. There are even people who collect cookbooks, and don’t even cook, that buy cookbooks to read or as gifts.

I’ll never say that writing a cookbook is easy, because it’s not. But, it is very rewarding and an endeavor many aspire to undertake. The problem is there are many moving parts to a cookbook project. Many aspiring cookbook authors don’t know where to start, what to do first, and they worry about countless other things related to writing recipes, self-motivation, and “pulling it all together”.

If you want a to write a cookbook, I’m here to cheer you on. My desire is to teach you what I have learned as a cookbook author, editor, and contributor. In addition, I hope to save you time, money, and effort. There are mistakes to be made when you write a cookbook, but I’d prefer you avoid them, and get started on the right path.

To share these mistakes I plan to offer a free webinar. The webinar will be of great value to anyone who wants to write a cookbook. In the webinar I’ll discuss the 5 Mistakes of Aspiring Cookbook Authors as well as tips on how to avoid them. I hope to see you there. Click here or below on the gray box to enroll. And remember it’s free and offered at two convenient times.

Cookbook Camp Is Underway!
Cookbook Camp Is Underway!

Yesterday we (me and enrolled Cookbook Campers) completed our second session of our 5-part Cookbook Camp. During the session I dove deep into a discussion about cookbook concept development and present six considerations for developing a clear cookbook concept.

Not too long after we finished our session, a Cookbook Camper e-mailed me to say that she had an epiphany about her cookbook concept – “it became crystal-clear,” she remarked.

This is what I love about working with aspiring cookbook authors. Sometimes we think our cookbook concept needs to appeal to “everyone”. But in reality, when a cookbook author visualizes who their intended audience is, and then proceeds to write to that audience, a more clear concept for their book comes into focus.

This is not always easy to do, and it takes some work, but in the end this is what we need to do. This is also something that helps with cookbook publication, no matter the route one chooses for their cookbook. Not to mention, a clear concept goes a long way in marketing and selling the cookbook as well.

Our next 5-part Cookbook Camp will begin in early 2012. Stay tuned for more details.…
