    Cookbook Publishing Entitlement and Expectations

    Cookbook Publishing Entitlement and Expectations

    Hello and welcome to another episode of the podcast - excited to be here to talk about cookbook publishing entitlement and expectations.. We often come to the table of publishing with expectations about how a publisher should act or react to what we send to them. We feel entitled to them responding or replying in a certain way or time to anything we submit to them and we let whether they respond or not dictate how we feel about ourselves and our projects. Today on the podcast I provide some insight about who publishers are and what they want from writers, and in turn what we can do to possibly attract a publisher into our life.

    Are There Too Many Cookbooks?

    Are There Too Many Cookbooks?

    Hello and welcome to another episode of the podcast. I went through a period of time where I actually believed there wasn't a need for more cookbooks. I can't even believe I'm telling you this. And there wasn't a need for sure for a cookbook written by me was what my brain told me. Who would care anyway what I had to say? After some soul-searching and reflections here is what I soon realized about the number of cookbooks out there and how you can take a look at the abundance of cookbooks too. 
    Are there too many romance novels, cozy mysteries, children’s books, self-help books, historical fiction, or books about business or marketing? The only people who think this is true are people who don’t like these books or people who want to write these books. They see the abundance of books as a reason not to write instead of a reason to write. We need to let the abundance of books be a reason to write - pointing the way to a topic that is in demand. Everyone needs to eat. All humans. All ages, sizes, sexes, identities, colors, meat- or veg-eaters. Food touches everyone’s life. And there may come a time when a cook who has never invested money in a cookery book needs one. They are diagnosed with a chronic illness. They have a desire to save money. They want to be healthier. They want to prepare family meals or connect with their family  And so many of the eaters out there would benefit from a message that helps them: Learn how to prepare fresh vegetables. Learn how to reduce their fasting blood glucose with food. Learn how to make cupcakes. Learn how to use their air-fryer. Learn how to have fun planning a week's worth of meals. Learn how to save money on grocery store expenses. Your perspective on a cookery topic matters. In the Fall of 2022, there are new cookie cookbooks, cookbooks by debut authors, and sheet pan cookbooks being released. Are any of those topics new? It is important to marinate in the fact that cookbooks impact people in a very real way - physically and emotionally. All cooks have the potential to feel better when they read or eat meals using our books. So many cooks. So many things they want to learn. If we don't write a book that helps them who will? And even if others are writing books for some of the eaters, there are more eaters who are waiting for you. Because you have a unique message and perspective to share.

    Hello and welcome to another episode of the podcast - today I want to share key takeaways from the 30 Recipes in 30 Days Challenge we are doing inside Get Paid to Get Published during our July and August Recipe Camp.
    During the month of July in Recipe Camp we're heightening our awareness of ingredient lists and recipe processes that are all around us, whether we’re cooking food in our own kitchen, or traveling and eating food in a restaurant or in someone else’s kitchen.
    Awareness of what we’re eating and cooking and the documentation of what we cook and eat helps us create new ideas for recipes for our projects.
    Tune in to hear the key takeaways from Get Paid to Get Published students who are participating in the 30 Recipes in 30 Days Challenge to include their wins, what they’re struggling with, and what they may need to start or stop thinking or doing to reach their goal of creating 30 new recipes in 30 days.
