Endings and Beginnings

All journeys come to an end when they
reach their destination; we've arrived at the end of my month-long blogging journey. Along the way, we've traveled through many of my books, blogs, and websites.

You can see my books (ones I've written and others that I've edited and published) in the Amazon widgets on the sidebar; there's a full list of my blogs and websites a bit further down the page.

The end of this journey is really another beginning, a new journey. I'm working on a new book that will help to remind you of who you really are... a powerful, spiritual being of light.

At the beginning of this month, I offered a book giveaway to someone who came by my blog and left a comment. The winner is Julie; she can choose whatever book she wants from the books I blogged about this month.

Thanks to everyone who visited and read my posts. I've enjoyed traveling with you. Come back and visit whenever you want. And remember... the joy is in the journey.

Cooking a Cookbook

I've got a new cookbook simmering in my mind and on paper.

Hatch Chile Cookbook offers 300 recipes for freshly-roasted Hatch green chiles, as well as
a history of Hatch and fun chile facts. These are the best chiles in the world! When you
eat them, you feel like you're in heaven. For recipes, and more information about these delicious hot and spicy chiles, visit my Hatch Chile Heaven blog.

Tomorrow, since we've been focusing on food for the past several days, let's return to a magical path to see how magical we all are.

Creating a Cookbook

A cookbook starts out just like any book--with an idea and a desire
to write it. I wrote my first cookbook, Really Good Recipes, as a
lark because I thought it would be fun to do and I wanted to share
my recipes. It was fun and it was definitely a learning experience.
One of the first things I learned is that a cookbook is so much more
than just recipes; it's filled with a theme and a story line, and lots
of enticing tidbits.

Since that time, I've written and self-published 3 more cookbooks,
and had another one (Foods and Flavors of San Antonio) commercially published. I'm currently working on a second Tex-Mex cookbook that my publisher asked me to write, as well as two others.

I also teach cookbook-writing classes through a community education program that offer a detailed, step-by-step approach to creating a cookbook, from finding a theme and a storyline all the way through getting your cookbook published and 101 ways to promote it.

Tomorrow, I'll share a new cookbook that is a work-in-progress. I hope you like spicy food.

Recipe for a Cookbook

As I mentioned in a previous post, I write cookbooks as well as New Age books, because we all have to eat! I love cooking and creating new recipes. Being a writer and a cookbook author, I wrote a recipe for cookbook authors... Recipe for a Cookbook: How to Write, Publish, and Promote Your Cookbook.

It includes all the ingredients that go into making and marketing a cookbook. Here's the back cover blurb:

Whether you're a great cook wanting to share your recipes, or you want to pass down Grandma's secret recipes through your family, or you're a chef who is writing a cookbook, or your church, school, group, or organization wants to produce a fundraising cookbook, this book has all the ingredients you need to write, publish, and sell your cookbook. The recipes for success take you through the process from beginning to end--from appetizers through desserts.

Recipe for a Cookbook is filled with extra helpings of information, ideas, and inspiration. It's a guide that serves up plenty of know-how and generous portions of how-to for preparing, writing, and serving a cookbook. Inside this book you'll find everything you need to know:
  • How to develop your cookbook's taste and personality;
  • How to collect, test, sort, and write your recipes;
  • What to include and serve on the side in your cookbook;
  • Decide whether to self-publish or pursue publication;
  • How to format, typeset, and illustrate your cookbook;
  • How to make your cookbook stand out from the crowd;
  • 101 ways to find and sell to profitable markets;
  • How to promote your cookbook to all the right people in all the right places;
  • Contests to enter your cookbook in to win awards;
  • Catalogs and websites to showcase your cookbook; and
  • Comprehensive resource guides for cookbook printers, distributors, book reviewers, and much more.
This book offers you all the ingredients for creating, cooking, and serving your cookbook with style and flair.

In addition to the blog where I share tidbits of cookbook-writing information, there are also pages which offer more information about the book, as well as links to cookbook printers and recipe sites.

Tomorrow, we'll travel to a cookbook class.

Writer's Workshop

The writer's path is a journey... sometimes a long and circuitous one. I've traveled this path many times; sometimes it's a walk in the park, other times it's a rocky road. I've been teaching writer's workshops for the past 18 years, guiding writers along the path to a published book. I currently teach through NEISD Community Education in San Antonio, TX. The workshop focuses on helping you write a book proposal that will get you an offer and a publishing contract for your nonfiction book.

But writers are everywhere, so if you're a writer, I invite you
to visit my Writer's Workshop blog, to explore the site to see what's offered and to decide if the information will be helpful to you as you journey the path to becoming a published author.

Tomorrow, we'll take a side trip on the writer's path to explore
a recipe for a cookbook.

The Path to Publishing

Writers journey through a publishing path to get their books published. One of the steps to getting published is writing
a book proposal.

The Path to Publishing Your Book
is a guide along the writer's path to publication. This is the workbook that I use for my writer's workshops. It offers everything you need to know about writing a perfect book proposal that will get you an offer and a publishing contract for your nonfiction book.

From finding the right publisher or
agent, to writing your book proposal, submitting it correctly, understanding and negotiating a book contract, all the way through being edited and finally seeing your book on the bookstore shelf... this book has it all. It clearly explains what to do and how to do it, and what NOT to do to get your book published.

I love helping writers get published. I know the absolute joy that comes from holding your published book in your hand for the first time. Tomorrow, we'll continue on the writer's path to a workshop that can help you make your dream of getting your book published come true.
