Do you know that your experience as a cook or baker can make someone's life better, healthier, more fun?
Perfect. It's time to get serious and start writing. COVID-19 has proven that readers are hungry for cookbooks.
Being a cookbook writer isn't worrying about about tech, photos, or design.
That's just drama for the start of a cookbook project and quite frankly that's what publishers are for.
You first job as a cookbook writer is to develop your belief in yourself as a writer, develop a compelling concept based on who you are and what you know, and from a place of confident energy write your cookbook proposal.
We are cookbook writers.
We define concepts.
We build our platforms.
We get busy writing cookbook proposals.
We don't stress about food photography or book design.
We aren't worried about losing control.
We pour ourselves into being cookbook writers who are getting published.
And it's in business to create cookbooks and make money.
To provide readers with books that benefit them. That help them heal, learn, or have fun in the kitchen.
The opportunity for writing a cookbook and getting published has never been better because of COVID-19.
Publishers are looking for writers like you for their books and readers are looking for books like yours to change their lives.
That just isn’t true.
Plus, publishers need content for their cookbooks.
If they don't have cookbook writers with ideas and good content, they can't publish cookbooks.
Inside the mastermind we use the power of a group with a mutual goal: becoming cookbook authors by getting traditionally published. Here's how we do that:
You leave the retreat with a plan. Now it's time to implement. We will meet 2 times/month for hotseats, coaching, and instruction calls that mix support, brainstorming, goal setting, and accountability so that you you make real-time progress on your self-concept, book concept, and proposal.
Your cookbook proposal is the tool that you use to communicate all about you and your book idea to a publisher. While in the mastermind group, Maggie and fellow mastermind members provide proposal critique and review, so that you can shape and perfect your proposal before you send it to a publisher.
Maggie is a great coach. She listens and helps you focus and articulate your vision for your cookbook. Maggie provides many relevant support materials and guides to make it easy for you to be productive.
I was unfamiliar with the path to cookbook publication. Maggie gave me the education, support and expertise I needed to complete my project. The community she creates and the skills she teaches are incredibly valuable and have helped other areas of my life. I cannot recommend her services enough!
When you set goals and meet regularly with a group you have an opportunity to be accountable and make progress
When you connect with a group you're no longer working alone in your kitchen or office
When you connect with a coach and mentor your performance as a writer improves
When I first spoke with Maggie Green about becoming a part of the Mastermind Cookbook group, I told her that my cookbook concept had been a labor of love that I was about to think was just a dream. Through Maggie's patience, persistence, encouragement and vast experience, I now believe it will be a not too distant reality! Her connections in the literary world provided me with an introduction to an editor in my home state, and hopefully, this will be a successful partnership. If you think you cannot write a cookbook, I encourage you to think again and consider signing up for this course!
I was a member of Maggie's mastermind group for writing a cookbook proposal. It's a daunting task to write the proposal but Maggie breaks it down into workable pieces, the group is supportive and gives great feedback. I started with one idea, but fine tuned my cookbook idea with the help of the mastermind group.
Participating in the Mastermind Cookbook group has been invaluable for me! I know I would not be at the point of submitting my proposal to a publisher if I had not joined this group! Maggie's way of getting everyone involved and contributing to the group is excellent. Her knowledge and expertise in writing cookbook proposals, working with publishers and helping writers build confidence is excellent. It has been great to go through the process with other cookbook writers, talk through where we are and to help each other think through our concepts and proposals has been incredibly helpful. I highly recommend joining this group for anyone who is serious about getting their cookbook published!
I love college basketball, Great British Bake Off, and cute local coffee shops. When I'm not with my family in our kitchen or around the dinner table, I'm teaching cooks and bakers just like you about how to get paid to write cookbooks.
