From: Denise Hamilton
since I became a bestselling cookbook author I've had aspiring
authors approach me to ask:
"How can I
publish my own cookbook?" and "Exactly
what did you do to sell over a
quarter of a million copies?".
tell you, I have bent over backwards trying to teach every aspiring
cookbook author exactly how to implement every strategy I've used to
sell over 250,000 copies of my book.
still see countless people with incredible cookbook ideas
wasting months and months of time only to give up on the verge of a
bestseller simply because they're afraid that it's too difficult,
too expensive, or too much of a risk.
I've spent a lot of
time looking for a solution - an easy way to help these authors by
giving them all of the knowledge, tips and techniques they need in
order to create a cookbook that sells...
But all I've found
is information on publishing cookbooks for friends, family and
fundraisers. If that's all you want, then you're in luck out
there... but if you want to publish a cookbook that sells, then you
What you REALLY need to know is:
How to pick a cookbook topic that will make money
How to know whether to self publish your cookbook or
find a publisher
The biggest mistakes most self-publishers make that
cost them thousands in sales
How to publish as fast as possible and the easiest ways to profit
The best ways to get your cookbook into bookstores
How to sell to volume buyers who buy
up to 100,000 copies at once - with no returns!
true, I did succeed and I did sell a lot of books. But, I learned it all the hard way and
it took me years to become successful. Looking back, I wish I had
someone like me around to make sure I avoided all the costly
I'm here now to help you. I have
finally figured out a way to give
new cookbook authors one-on-one guidance and support. I've put
together a resource that includes EVERYTHING I know about
publishing cookbooks including...
strategy, technique, and tool
I actually used
to sell over 250,000 copies
of my own
self published cookbook.
(◄◄◄◄ That's my cookbook!)
These strategies worked for my book, and they are the same strategies that I
use today to help other cookbook authors sell their books today. I
now run a business that is based on these strategies. I sell
thousands of self published books each year for authors. It's easy
-- if you publish the right way.
In fact, I just sold 20,000 copies of this
self published cookbook author's second book:
"Denise is a one
woman publishing dynamo! Very few self published authors have been
as successful or sold as many books as Denise has.
proof that you can do it on your own, without a publisher backing
you up (and taking your profits!). When it comes to marketing,
publicity and other aspects of the publishing business she really
thinks outside the box, which results in big sales! Denise has
learned the ups and downs of a very difficult business from personal
experience, and I can think of no one better to help first time book
publisher navigate their own journey! Knowledge is power, and is
invaluable if you want to turn a profit.

Before I go on, I
don't want to forget to tell you to sign up for my FREE monthly
book publishing newsletter. It's filled with loads of publishing tips,
resources and information. When you sign up you'll also receive a
Free Report (valued at $10.95).
I decided to self publish my own book for
one main reason: because I wanted to keep all of my profits! After
all my hard work and effort I didn't want to give all of my profits
away to a publisher, who wouldn't do much to promote it anyway. You
should be thinking the same thing.
Let me put it this way, if you
spend all of your valuable time looking for a big publishing house
publish your cookbook, you've accomplished 3 things:
1. You've spent a lot of time
looking when you could have already had your book published.
Publishing contracts can take years to sign and then once you've
signed, new books are usually put on the waiting list and aren't
published for one to three years. Do you really want to wait that
long? You could publish your cookbook yourself in a
fraction of the time it takes to find a publisher.
2. You will lose all
control of your book. Before I decided to self publish, I
found a publishing house who wanted to take on my book. I was
ecstatic and thought that was the best thing to ever happen to me.
Wrong. The publisher wanted to change everything! They wanted to
change the cover, the title, the layout... pretty much the entire
concept of the book. I don't know about you, but I have some pretty
strong feelings about my cookbook and I didn't want anyone telling
me what to do. Guess what? I was obviously right or I wouldn't
have sold 250,000 copies!
3. You're going to miss out
on all the profit. When you sign with a publisher they pay you
and advance on sales - which means if your sales aren't high enough,
that money is NOT yours to keep. Then, you receive royalties on book
sales once sales levels pass your advance payment. Royalties are, at
the very MOST, 10% of the price of the book. Ten percent?? For all your hard
work, can you imagine only earning ten percent? I couldn't, and that's why I
published my cookbook myself. I keep 100% of the profits from my
books sales. Not ten percent, one hundred percent. That's a big
How can you be
sure I know what I'm talking about?
The proof is in the sales for one
thing. If I've sold over a quarter of a million copies, I must have
a pretty darn good idea of what I'm doing. The truth is, it took me a long time to
figure it out. But I did it. I figured out the best ways to sell
cookbooks and make money. Now I'm going to save you all that extra time and put
you on the fast track to cookbook publishing success.
You should also know that I
actually spend most of my time
now helping other self published authors market and sell their
books. In fact, I just sold another 20,000 copies of another
author's self published book. That's 20,000 copies, in one sale,
with no returns. I'm negotiating a deal for another sale of 25,000
I will also explain to you how I
sold my books to large volume buyers, to foreign countries, and to
large publishing houses.
These sales are my favorite because all
I have to do is collect checks. I don't even have to pay to print
the books, the buyer handles that. Here's the best part, my book
isn't even in the bookstores today, but I continue selling the
rights and earning money on it each and every year. I'll tell
you all about these buyers and I'll even tell you how to reach them.

It's true that I
published and sold 250,000 copies of my own book without taking a
single workshop or seminar to do it. I am a self-taught, self
published author, and I'm going to share my experience and knowledge
with you in an easy to follow program that you can complete at home,
on your own time.
I did do it all on my own, but it took me
years. You now have the opportunity to benefit from my experience and
fast-track your way to big book sales.
You won't believe what I'm about to say,
but it's true... It really doesn't matter if you are a chef... it doesn't matter if you don't have any formal
cooking training... and it doesn't even matter if you have
no experience whatsoever. What I have put together is an easy to
follow, effective, program that covers all of the crucial concepts,
techniques and strategies you're going to need -- without any hype
importantly, if you only sell a few books to your family and friends, you've paid for the
cost of this entire program - guaranteed. No one else can offer you
that kind of deal. No one.
So, if you want to publish a book that
makes you money... if you want to
publish your own cook book and keep all
of your profits... if you want to achieve all of this quickly and without spending
thousands and thousands of dollars on mistakes that I'm going to
teach you exactly how to avoid... then keep on reading!
always be a market for cookbooks
As cookbook authors, we all have different ideas
levels of experience. We all even have different styles of cooking, but...
...every single one of us can be successful
cookbook publishing. Why? Because it all boils down to some very simple
techniques, having the right information in the beginning, following
the right steps... and with the latest publishing options available
today, very little capital to begin.
Sure publishing is a competitive industry, but does that mean your
cookbook book doesn't have incredible potential? Heck no!

today? People buy cookbooks! I KNOW you have a few in your cupboard
So, can you
have a chunk of that
multi-billion dollar pie?
You bet you can! If you're willing to put
in a little work.
From what I've personally seen in this
industry, the biggest reason most cookbook authors fail is that they throw
away huge amounts of money in all the wrong places by working on
a trial-and-error basis. They aren't committed to publishing as a
business and they think that their cookbook will just fly off the
shelves with absolutely no effort on their part. There is no
business in the world that will do that for you. You will have to
work at it, but if you believe in your book, you will be successful.
The key is understanding exactly what you have to do.
