Book publishing

Hi Jamie

I am in the process of writing a cook book which is delivered in my own words.

I am not an author but have great experience on the topic and the contents within the book.

After writing the manuscript I am now sure of what to do next.

I do not want to spend thousands and get nowhere as I donít have thousands.

Can you help me

I live in the Middle East so calling or visiting in the UK may be an issue

Regards,

Darren

Re: Book publishing

Welcome to the forum Darren  smile

I am sorry I have no idea how to procded in getting your book published .
But I did chat to some girls the other month on the train , they had been to some sort of writers convention/fayre and talked about how they aproached publishers with a part of theur manuscript,
May be you could do a similar thing bu seeking out the main cookerbook publishing houses and send them an chapter of your book to see if it interests them.
I am sure like all things , you will have to approach many people before you get much in the way of replies .

Good luck
