Though the early stage of cookbook production is undoubtedly the most exciting, it requires a generous amount
of patience and hard work. Wimmer Cookbooks responds to this challenge, by providing all publishers with the following services and opportunities.
Each publisher works with a personal publishing consultant to manage all aspects of planning, development and marketing. This includes, but is not limited to, defining
theme and storyline, identifying selling features and target markets, collecting and testing recipes, and maintaining budget guidelines.
Cookbook Instruction Manual
We provide new publishers with a complete "how to" workbook that covers each step in the cookbook publishing process - from organizing committees and
editing recipes to understanding distribution and locating free publicity.
Note: Publishers of DESIGNER SERIES books receive a separate manual, specific to their needs.
Custom Financial Analysis
Once an outline is in place, consultants identify the publisher's expected "return on investment," by analyzing the estimated production and
marketing costs of each book.
The Workshop is a one-on-one session with your personal publishing consultant that focuses on creating a marketable, high-quality product. Emphasis is placed on
storyline, recipe collection, introductory design, and manuscript submission.
Note: Because they operate on a smaller budget, publishers of DESIGNER SERIES books do not participate in a cookbook workshop.
