Self publishing – the perfect recipe for success
Green Hill has found the perfect recipe for self publishing your cookbook.
Here are our top four tips:
- Use good photography – let prospective readers taste the book with their eyes!
- Dumb down the recipes – simple is everything. Readers must be able to follow along easily. Do not assume anything e.g. what’s “napper with a jigger of Ketjap manis”? And we can advise how to test your recipe format with readers.
- Use a strong template – every page must be designed consistent with previous pages and resist too much design on the pages with text – readability is paramount and graphics often clutter and distract.
- Think about the functional aspects of the book – “squarish” books are easier to keep open on a kitchen bench, gloss paper resists staining.
