I’ve found an exciting new method for people who want to write and publish their own cookbook.
I was looking up a guy called Ron Douglas the other day. On the Simon and Schuster site I found a little bio of him. Apparently he is the New York Times bestselling author of “America’s Most Wanted Recipes”, “More of America’s Most Wanted Recipes”, and “America’s Most Wanted Recipes Without the Guilt”.
That is very interesting to me because he has recently decided other people to get published, and he’s written a reveal-all report called “Write a Cookbook And Make It Sell”.
Ron says his book is a proven way to publish your own cookbook – and make a profit – within sixty days.
His report includes
- How to quickly assess the market to choose a winning theme and price for your cookbook
- Where to find royalty-free non-copyrighted recipes
- What free software to use to easily organize your recipes
- How to get your cookbook designed and created inexpensively but still look professional
- A risk-free method to fund your project with profits from customers instead of out of pocket
- The shortcut tactic to get your cookbook selling on Amazon.com and Barnes & Nobles
- Where to find high-powered Agents who will get you a book deal with a huge sign on bonus
- How to avoid getting ripped off and wasting a ton of money on your cookbook project
- A very interesting – and apparently very powerful – marketing system which Ron says has groups of people eagerly waiting to buy your cookbook before it’s even released.
Ron says he has sold 50,000 copies of his own self-published cookbook before he signed up with a major publisher for an equally major bonus.
His report is structured like this:
Module 1: Planning Your Marketplace Penetration Strategy
How you can quickly understand what the market wants in order to develop your strategy and plan of attack. Planting the seeds for success.

How to determine if your cookbook topic will sell – in advance. Ron says he will show you a surefire way to pick a winning theme for your cookbook and ensure that people will want to buy it.

He says he’ll share with you how he started with $125 and built a publishing empire. He thinks this section alone is worth many times the price of the course
