Getting Started Publishing Your Own Cookbook Ebook
While this article describes how to get your own cookbook ebook published, it will work for virtually any type of ebook you can think of. Ebook publishers don’t always mean cookbooks.
The first step you’ll need to do is organize everything. If you are going to use pictures in your ebook then you’ll want to have them scanned or stored on your computer so you can easily access them when creating each recipe page. Your recipes will also need to be handy and in the order you want them to appear in the ebook. If your cookbook is going to be categorized then you’ll need to have the sets of recipes together. Having all your items ready is essential to getting the ebook in order and published quickly.
Software for Ebook Publishers
If you are familiar with Microsoft Word or a similar word processing program, then you shouldn’t have any problem creating a cookbook ebook. There are lots of programs that ebook publishers use and can range in price from free to very expensive. One of the free options that is available is Open Office. It is a much like Microsoft Office but it is free and that coupled with the fact that it is truly great software makes it that much better. You can download Open Office from the OpenOffice website here.
To use OpenOffice after you have it installed, open OpenOffice Writer. Writer is the equivalent of Microsoft Word. The interface should be a bit familiar to you if you have ever used word. If not, you may want to look into some tutorials on their website. Once you’ve created your cookbook much like you would a word document you can save it as a PDF document (ebook format) by selecting the File menu and clicking on “Export as PDF”. This will save the ebook for you and eliminate the need for ebook publishers. There are other things in OpenOffice you can use including adding page numbers, headers, and footers to each page.
