Continuing on trends for 2014, one that seems to be emerging is picturesque cookbooks with easy to follow steps.  I remember the cookbooks of old... full of words and expectations that I had knowledge of how to turn on the stove.  Today this could be further from the truth. People want pictures.

Technology Relating to Book Publishing
What does this have to do with technology you ask? I decided to investigate and found some interesting sites that you may use to self-publish your book. In fact with a few clicks, you are a published author on Amazon!

I looked up some sources for you

Kindle Direct Publishing
This relatively easy process takes minutes to set up and you can publish any book any subject.  Please keep it professional! I suggest hiring an editor.

25 things you need to know about self publishing

CNET has some great tips regarding self publishing.


Yes this is Amazon again!  They are going to own the world one day. They aspire to be all things "books" and they purchased BookSurge and CreatSpace and merged them under the CreateSpace brand.  Again, very easy to publish!

Lulu has been around for a while.  They have great resources regarding writing that book and self-publishing. They even challenge you to think e-book!

In all cases the first thing for you to do is start!  You have had the idea cooking for a number of years, so why not write it down and publish it?
