When life gave me lemons, I began creating and designing recipe books with the goal of getting out of debt. After five years, a lot of hard work and sacrifice, that dream has become a reality: www.lemonpoppycake.com Looking back on this journey, my heart is full of gratitude for the lessons I have learned. "Humble Pie" is the thesis I must complete in order to graduate from the school of hard knocks--a recipe book highlighting my photography, food styling, graphic design and also the lessons I have learned along the way. This book will be filled with the VERY BEST pie recipes, printed in FULL-COLOR, with pictures of every recipe. Humble Pie is my gift back to the world.
I have been working on Humble Pie for the last year, moving forward with my big idea. I have just a few more pies to bake and photograph before jumping into the editing process. I will personally be doing the photography and tag-teaming the graphic design with my friend Lynn. Humble Pie will be printed in the U.S.A.!
Here's a sneak peek of what's inside:
Apple Brie Pie, Cookies and Cream Pie, Pailsade Peach Pie, Cherry Apple Pie, Toasted Coconut Cream Pie, Peanut Butter Chocolate Pie, Key Lime Pie Bars, Sour Cream Pie, Raspberry Pie, Raisin Cream Pie, Swiss Chess pie, Berry Lattice Pie, Savory Onion Pie, Savory Quiche, Raspberry Lemonade Pie and more!
The first edition of Humble Pie will include a FAVORITE pie recipe from the kickstarter crew. "Kickstarter Key Lime Pie" or whatever they choose! Also, your name will be included in the credits if you contribute $100 or more!
YOUR HELP in funding this project is critical for me to keep the overall cost per book to a minimum. This will allow me to re-sell Humble Pie at a wholesale price to stores across the U.S.A.
15,000 dollars is the minimum goal for this project. This price includes the print and production of the first 4,000 copies of Humble Pie. It also includes the funds needed to fulfill all of the "Kickbacks", the services of a professional editor, and creation of an e-book.
Humble Pie is a BIG dream, but with your help I KNOW we can make it happen! I have tried to offer valuable kickbacks in order for you to jump on board and be a part of this dream!
Here is the deal with Kickstarter... I have to reach my goal of $15,000 in order for this project to fund. It is ALL OR NOTHING. So let's do this!
Please share this project through social media (buttons are right below the video) in order to help get the exposure it needs! I can't wait to share Humble Pie with you and the world!
Risks and challenges
I have spent the last five years working out the kinks with my recipe book business. I feel confident in the steps required to make this happen.
The only challenge I see project is in the production. My printer in California will print 6x6 pages in a 14 pt. paper, glossed on both sides. We punch, coil and bind the books in house.
We may need sub out some of the work, but we can use a local printing company for the labor.
Also, juggling my job as a mom might get a little overwhelming. I might need to hire a babysitter, but we can work that out too.
