Episode 293:  How to Persevere in Cookbook Publishing: Take a Look at Your Why Behind the Why

Hello, and welcome to another episode of the podcast. Today, I’m excited to talk to you about how to persevere in cookbook publishing. The journey of writing a cookbook and getting it published is a long haul, especially when you add in the journey of marketing, promotion, and sales of your book after it’s published. So why do we want to do this? Over my many years of working with writing my own cookbooks and working with cookbook writers, I have learned a ton, but there’s one thing that we haven’t talked about, and that’s your why behind your why. There are many reasons why we want to write a cookbook. I will talk about them today, but behind our why is another way: what is the deep-down reason that we’re willing to endure the doubt, laziness, confusion, procrastination, and rejection that we will inevitably face to get the book published? That’s what we’re going to discuss on the show today. 

Before we start, do you want to master cookbook publishing and secure an agent or publisher you love? I know there are many of you out there that want this. I’ve talked to you and coached you, and I suspect there are many listening to you feel this way. So, suppose you’d like to learn how to secure an agent or publisher for your cookbook project. In that case, I invite you to an upcoming free webinar I’m teaching on Wednesday, May 8, 2024, called: Master Cookbook Publishing: Secure Your Dream Agent or Publisher. In this class, I will talk all about the five main steps in the cookbook publishing process, four qualities of cookbook writers that agents and publishers love, and 3 myths about the cost of writing a cookbook that we need to squash so that you can move forward with your project. I’d love for you to join me so head on over to www.cookbookwritersacademy.com/free and register for this free class today.
