Subject: MudCat Cookbook Details Cost/Headcount
From: NicoleC
Date: 24 Apr 03 - 05:44 PM

I'm trying to find the best method for production that's cost effective but attractive and very usable. After all, there are some darn good recipes in this book and I think you'll actually cook out of it. (Not to mention all those foodie tunes you might want to play.)

Since I haven't done the layout work yet while waiting for submissions to come in (7 days left!), I have quite a bit of flexibility. If we order 200 copies or more, there will be a significant savings. We don't get much of a price break until well above that number, although the more that are ordered, the cheaper it gets.

So first, I need a headcount to see how many are likely to actually sell. At least SOME pre-paid orders are a must; the cost of printing the whole run is higher than yours truly feels comfortable coughing up alone. Price will probably be $15 (if we reach 200 copies). Maybe $17.50.

Second, how many would like to purchase an additional CD at about $5 to go with the cookbook? If there's enough interest, it could be worth making that, too.

Third, is there anyone that would like to handle the physical distribution in the US that maybe has a postage meter or has days free to get to the post office? I can do the distribution, but I don't think orders will get as quickly as you might like.

Fourth, how about distribution in the UK? If there are enough orders overseas, I suspect it will be much cheaper to send a big box over and have the individual ones get mailed out or distributed from there.

Let me know!

Would you be interested in a recipe for Cumberland Tattie Pot? It is THE meal that accompanies hunting sing-songs in the Lake district. Some claim it was John Peel's favourite food. I'm not surprised. It is delicious. I can also send a lovely song (not in the DT) Which mentions hunting from the old Beagle Inn which is in.... tattie pot lane!

Good idea!!

Extras? Well, you can order as many as you want. Only 8 months to Christmas, after all :)

Yes, I'll order more than the headcount, but I want to get a ballpark figure and set a budget goal. Then, I'd like to get anough pre-paid orders to pay for the whole run and then some, then any more that sell after that will be icing on the cake.

The CD would just be a PDF version of the cookbook, probably with an index. Some folks expressed an interest in one, but the majority favored a physical book. If there's enough interest in the CD, maybe it could be an add-on option. I don't want have CDs available by themselves, because we need to rack up some orders to get the price down and the profit to MudCat up.

Suggestion... instead of mailling a CD... why not make the PDF available for download? That way you can still charge the extra 5er... but you don't have to 'ship' anything... people can go and down the PDF themselves and either print it off, or burn it to CD themselves...

Just an idea...

It's an idea, but the PDF file will be very large (30-40MB at least); most people couldn't download it. I guess it depends on how far I could compress it down.

Nicole,

I don't wish to be negative, but I'd doubt that you'd get 200 takers.

History here suggests that only half the people who say that they'll buy something 'mudcat' actually do.

Speak to (or PM) Max, Dick Greenhaus and Amos (who have all done mudcat fundraisers) to get a better idea on likely sale figures. I think it might be a little smaller than you expect.

I really don't understant how the PDF file could be 30+ MB. (Unless it's a 10 000 page master work)

Let me know how you're doing it (here or via PM) and I'll try to advise on pdf.

Sorry for not posting the most optimistic message. It is however realistic.

Ed

From: NicoleC
Date: 25 Apr 03 - 04:35 PM

I know, Ed. I'd LIKE to get 200... but I don't think I will. We're looking at a production cost of $11 each for 100 copies, and $7.50 for 200. (Not including mailing the suckers.) That's a big difference; $11 is too high to make enough money off the project to make it worthwhile, so a lot of corners will get cut to bring the cost down. Hence, the head count. And the pre-orders. Before I do much too much work that might have to be redone.

The PDF size will depend a lot on how many graphics and layout elements I include. If this were text only, then yes, the file would be pretty small. Last project like this I did, a 16 page Distilled EPS file was almost 5MB. On the other hand, I just converted a 56 page user manual to PDF from MS Word with minimal images, and it's just over 100kb.

Nicole, how do you feel about a famous recipe as long as I give credit to the author. I'm thinking of the famous mint julip recipe by a former mayor of Louisville or the Hot Brown Recipe from the Brown Hotel in Louisville. Then I can get my hands on a silly recipe of how to cook a camel. Maybe I should just stick with cornbread.

Hi, Nicole - Have you considered the possibiliy of electronic publishing to keep the costs low?
You could zip the book for download and so avoid the postage, too.
The zip-file could be password-protected, access only for catters who have paid their (I hope smaller) fee.

It's been discussed, Wilfried, but most folks wanted an actual cookbook that you could cook out of. Printing out 200 pages on a typical home inkjet would, for most people, cost more than the physical cookbook itself.

On a related note, only 2 or 3 folks have expressed an interest in a CD so far, so it seems unlikely that there will be a CD version. It doesn't seem worth the extra 30-ish hours of work to produce the CD.

Nicole -- I think skip the CD; most (as would I) would prefer a real book. Spiral-bound is great as you can flip it around to the page you want, and Kinko's can do that if you don't have the apparatus at home.

Right now I'm just getting a headcount so I know how many to print up. Sending overseas is no problem, but there may have to be a bit more postage.

DtG, some of the recipes are in weird overseas units. "Grams?" What are ya'll thinking?! :)

"Would you be interested in a recipe for Cumberland Tattie Pot? It is THE meal that accompanies hunting sing-songs in the Lake district. Some claim it was John Peel's favourite food. I'm not surprised. It is delicious. I can also send a lovely song (not in the DT) Which mentions hunting from the old Beagle Inn which is in.... tattie pot lane!"

I have been trying to get hold of the words / music to "the Old Beagle Inn for years. If anyone out there actually has those I would be extremely grateful if you would contact me.

Many thanks

A decent recipe for Tattie Pot Pie wouldn't go amiss either!

Peter, it's a bit unlikely that McGrath of Altcar would find your request in this cookbook thread. You'd get better results by either starting a new thread requesting the song, or joining as a member so you can send McGrath a Personal Message.

Cheers,
Michael
