The opportunity to publish one’s own work has never been more accessible than it is today. In this session, two author/publishers share how they published their recent cookbooks, the successes and challenges they faced, and practical advice for those who are considering going out on their own for their next cookbook. You’ll gain a realistic view into what it takes to successfully launch an independent cookbook project, specific advice for finding collaborators, funding, vendors, distribution, and other key resources, and plenty of inspiration to bring your own cookbook concept to fruition.
