How Do You Self Publish a Cookbook?

A cookbook can be self published using the popular self publishing platforms such as Amazon Createspace and Lulu for printed editions and Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) and Smashwords for eBooks.

But, like craft books, self publishing cookbooks can be quite a project. Here are just some of the special things you need to consider.

How to Write a Recipe

If you have never attempted writing a recipe, take a video of you making the dish. Then view the video and write down each action as you see it happening on the screen. This will help you identify steps that are second nature for you, but may not be for your readers.

If you have video editing software, see if it has the capability to capture frames from your video as JPEG photo files. If it does, this video could serve double duty by providing you with step-by-step photos for your cookbook! If you are doing a print book, just make sure that these screen captures are high resolution (usually 300dpi). Even if your video editor doesn't have screen capture capability, watching the video can help you identify steps that would be best explained by adding some still photos.
