From Food Blogger to Best-Selling Amazon Author

We took the “best of the best” recipes from Lauren and helped her become a top-ranked Amazon author!

Crafting a beautiful high-end cookbook from scratch…without the learning curve.

Lauren, and her sister Liz, came to Weller Smith Design to help them create a cookbook for their brand, Tastes Better from Scratch.

Lauren had a vision for her cookbook to showcase many of her tried and true recipes from her food blog, Tastes Better from Scratch, but she was not sure where to start.

WSD took the guesswork out of the process of creating a high-end cookbook which can feel overwhelming and daunting to a first-time author.

The Requirements

  • Custom, high-quality design that fits within the Tastes Better from Scratch brand.
  • Professional printing and binding for a full-color cookbook.
  • Online distribution across multiple channels without giving up ownership to a publisher.

Lauren on working with WSD

“We were debating whether to work with a traditional publishing house and agent or to self-publish. Weller Smith Design gave us the confidence that they could help us design and self-publish a beautiful book that we had control over the content.

As newbies to book publishing LeAnna really held our hand through the process and guided us through every single step. The communication was excellent, kept us on track, and our questions or concerns were always answered.”

The proof is in the pudding.

Self-published authors can find it hard to gain traction on online retailer sites. WSD works with each client to understand their sales goals and match them with the best partner to fulfill them.
