NY Times Best Selling Author Ron Douglas Reveals The Secret System He Used to Independently Sell Over 90,000 Self-Published Cookbooks And Get a Six-Figure Book Deal with a Major Publishing House.
"Discover A Proven Blueprint You Can Easily Duplicate to Publish Your Own Cookbook and Make a Profit in 60 Days or Less"
I Got So Sick Of All The Discouraging Myths and Misinformation Out There That I Decided I Had to Finally Reveal The Truth...
As the founder of several popular cooking communities online (such as FoodPals.com, RecipeSecrets.net, SendMeRecipes.com, etc.), I meet people all the time who have great ideas for a cookbook and could be making a lot of money. Not just one time cash - I'm talking royalties for years to come just from a book you worked on once. I really can't think of a better investment of time.
Heck, I'm still getting nice checks from a cookbook I released in 2003. Plus, after independently selling over 90,000 copies of that self-published title, a major publisher paid me a life-changing multiple-six figure sign on bonus plus ongoing royalties for the rights to that cookbook title.
However, despite this tremendous opportunity to earn passive residual income, 99.9% of these people will never do anything because they've been influenced by what I call the "10 Myths of Publishing Your Own Cookbook."
Don't Let These Common Myths Prevent You From Sharing Your Passion For Cooking With The World!
Myth #1. You need lots of money upfront.
FALSE. My system will show you how to get started with little or no cash and increase your sales while spending profits instead of your hard earned savings.
Myth #2. You have to be a chef or cooking expert.
FALSE. Everyone has to start somewhere. I wasn't a chef when I first started but after authoring 5 cookbooks, I'm now known as a cooking expert. All you really need is a good idea for a cookbook or a different spin on an existing idea. I'll show you how to find it.
Myth #3. It's too time consuming to get done.
FALSE. My system shows you what free software and services to use to make creating a cookbook easy. I'll also show you where to find skilled freelancers overseas who are professional but super inexpensive by US standards. These guys do excellent work and are just waiting for new projects.
Myth #4. You need to have hundreds of recipes that only you know.
FALSE. Having all your own unique recipes is always best, however, cookbooks can also be a collaborative effort with family and friends who have recipes to contribute. Don't let this common obstacle keep you from getting started.
Myth #5. I will get sued if I accidentally use a recipe that someone else has published.
FALSE. According to copyright law:
“Mere listings of ingredients as in recipes, formulas, compounds or prescriptions are not subject to copyright protection. However, where a recipe or formula is accompanied by substantial literary expression in the form of an explanation or directions, or when there is a combination of recipes, as in a cookbook, there may be a basis for copyright protection.”
Don't get me wrong, I don't advise you to steal other people's recipes, but the law clearly states that you can use a recipe as long as you're not using the "substantial literary expression" from the author's instructions.
Now, don't go and re-write someone's cookbook. Be original, find you're own idea. But at the same time, don't let this stop you from starting your cookbook - just ask your lawyer for advice.
Myth #6. You need to be very tech savvy or a computer expert.
FALSE. Like I mentioned, these days, user-friendly software and inexpensive freelancers will do everything you need done. After publishing five cookbooks, I still don't know Quark, PageMaker, Typesetting, PHP or any of that techie stuff. If you're savvy enough to log on and read this letter, I can show you how to get your cookbook done.
Myth #7. You need to get a book deal or have a good agent.
The course does cover where to find a good agent and how to get your books in stores. However, you can also do quite well by self-publishing because you keep all of the profits. You don't have to wait around for years hoping that a publisher gets interested in your cookbook. These days it's never been easier to publish your own cookbook at make sales both online and off.
I'll show you services that specialize in helping self-published authors. And once you can demonstrate some sales and a demand for your cookbook, it will be much easier to get a book deal (if you still want one at that point).
Myth #8. All the good cookbook ideas have already been taken and there is too much competition.
FALSE. That's probably the most ridiculous of all the myths that hold people back. There is a lot of competition because a lot of people buy cookbooks. People cook everyday and there are more cookbook buyers than you can imagine. I have customers who collect cookbooks and read them like novels. They purchase every cookbook that I publish or recommend.
If there was no competition I'd be more concerned. Plus, if people are looking forward to you putting out a cookbook, they will buy it because YOU are what makes it unique.
For instance, I have a Holiday Cookbook and a Low Fat Cookbook that still sell well. All I did was put my own spin on a common idea. In the course I discuss how to determine what the market wants and what will sell well before you spend any money.
Myth #9. You have to spend a lot of money on advertising to make any sales.
FALSE. My step-by-step "Quick-Start Marketing System" will show you how to get large groups of people eager to buy your cookbook before it's even released. I'll even show you how to get others to happily promote your cookbook for you. This free system has been proven to work with little or no money to start.
Myth #10. You need to keep inventory and ship orders to customers yourself.
FALSE. I'm currently shipping over a thousand cookbooks per month and I don't keep any inventory or ship any books myself. I'll share with you the automated services I use for hands-free and worry-free fulfillment. With my system, you only pay using the money you receive from customers. Plus you can mention my name and get a huge discount :-).
