How do get a cook book published. Family recipes that I want to have for my kids.
I have a lot of recipes from my mother, aunt and other family friends that are not with us anymore and I want my family to have them.
If your goal is simply to have a book for your children the quickest way to accomplish this would be to self-publish your cook book.
There are numerous self-publishing companies such as CreateSpace which is owned by Amazon. You can have your book made available in print and in Kindle version form if you desire.
There are lots of other companies as well.
Simply Google self-publishing print on demand and see what comes up and begin gathering information about available services and prices for comparision...etc Best wishes!
There are tons of places you can self publish a cookbook for cheap. Createspace is fantastic because it's print on demand so there is very little upfront cost. So it would be relatively cheap to give copies to your loved ones. You would also have the ability to add blank pages for them to include their own recipes. The biggest problem would be going through and formatting them all to fit your page size.
My grandparents had their family/church cookbook printed out and I have a copy and it's seriously the coolest thing. My grandparents are Seventh Day Adventists and so they are vegetarians so I have all of these super weird vegetarian recipes. I'll probably never make any of them but it's nice to know I could if I wanted to. It's stuff that I can't find through Google.
Design it like a newsletter or nice presentation, have it printed at a vanity press / small printer for $20 a piece, more if it is thick. Your family will have hard copies of the recipes, and if they are popular, you can print more to sell.
