Does anyone have good ideas on how to publish a cookbook?

So another passion that I apsolutly fell in love with was making my son all his food homemade when he was an infant.
I have written a very good(in my opinion)organic cookbook full of easy recipes to make baby from 1 month to 1 year. All organic and with simple easy ingredients. I have looked through different avenues like publishing for fundraising but I don't think that is for me. Is there such thing as a reputable publishing company that is willing to print & market it for a nominal fee?? Let me know if anyone has any good ideas. Comment them or email me at Melissastudioa@yahoo.com. Thanks for reading;)

Hi. Have you thought about creating an e-book and selling it via your blog online?

I happened by accident on your site but read your post... have you looked into www.blurb.com? You download their software and build your books... prices range based on the size of the book but start at $12.95 for a 7x7" softcover book with 1-40 pages. They also have hardcover pricing and different sizes and options for more pages. I believe you have the option of having your book listed on their site where anyone can buy (this might be free). You also get discounts if you have them printed in bulk (more than 10 copies). Good luck!

Hello Melissa,

I am currently working on a non-fiction book that I am publishing through Lulu.com. It is very easy and they offer services like editing and cover design. They will even walk you through the steps of getting it copywritten. I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions. You can also check out my blog at brookegrac.blogspot.com.

I know that this is an old thread but www.tastebook.com is really awesome if you want to do a few pilot books for local community etc..
