How do You Finance a Cookbook?

If you already have a successful food blog, you are probably able to self-finance your own cookbook. With your knowledge of recipe writing and food photography you already have the majority of the skills needed to write a cookbook covered. Print on demand publishing companies eliminate the majority of the upfront costs including purchasing inventory. Most cookbooks can be published for under a few thousand dollars depending on how much external expertise you need.

Now that I've done several cookbooks, the entire cost of producing a new one is very small because I handle all aspects myself. I only need to purchase an ISBN for about $25 and a proof copy for $25.

If you do need more money for any reason, there are several ways to finance your self published cookbook including taking pre-orders and going through KickStarter.
