4 Ingredients Cookbook - A Self Publishing Home Business Success Story
Australians Kim McCosker and Rachel Bermingham have a best selling cookbook on their hands. In fact, 4 Ingredients is the fastest selling cookbook in Australia. In an era of cookbooks sold on the names of celebrity chefs, Kim and Rachel have had a self publishing success.
The concept is that every recipe has only 4 ingredients (or less). What a top idea. Who wouldn’t want a quick recipe after a busy day?
The Sunshine Coast Daily reports
Rejected by publishers who said there were too many cookbooks around already, the duo perservered and funded their own printing run of just 2000 - then phoned a local newspaper, which ran an article on them.
Things took off after that and there’s even talk of a TV show. Rachel said “We wanted something so we just went out and did it.”
I take my hat off to these ladies and wish them every success. Perserverance, goals and a belief in themselves has paid off. Plus, not unimportantly, they have a great concept. Self publishing isn’t always an easy road, so heed the cautions and do your homework first.Tags: home-business, home-business-success, self-publishing, self-publishing-cookbook
