frequently asked questions

how do i join the cookbook lab?

You can enroll here! Enrollment for The Cookbook Lab is always open. If you aren’t sure if it’s the right fit for you or have a question use the form above to send me an email and I’ll be happy to help! 

Are you available for coaching calls? 

Yes! You can send me an email about booking a coaching call to see if it’s the right fit for you. I offer coaching and strategy sessions to help answer food blogging questions (how I’ve grown my blog, email marketing, recipe testing, photography, etc…) and about self-publishing your cookbook. 

Cookbook Lab students also receive a special discount on coaching calls and access to live trainings and group coaching. 

Why should I self-publish instead of getting a traditional cookbook deal?

So, you want to write a cookbook! I’m pretty confident you could get yourself a book deal if you wanted. But here’s why I opted to self-publish. When pitching publishers, the process of going from idea to deal can take years, between writing a proposal, pitching, waiting, negotiating, and more. I wanted my book done now. The deals being offered to cookbook authors are worse than ever (small advances, sometimes no royalties, tight timelines). Many costs of creating the book come out of your advance (recipe development, recipe testing, photography, indexing). If you want to go on a book tour, that's on your own dime, too. You lose creative control. I had a vision for my book and didn’t want someone else telling me what to do. (I might have a problem with authority??? )
