Authorpreneur: a noun. A professional author/entrepreneur who strives to improve in all areas of the publishing business: writing, publishing and marketing.
What does it really take to make it as an author? What are realistic production and promotion costs? Do many people make money publishing ebooks, and how much?
“Authorpreneur” takes a look at what’s involved in independent publishing and what you can expect at different career phases such as:
Starting Out with ebook publishing
Earning $500 per month and growing
And even feeling stuck in writing and marketing
I discuss real numbers and what success means to different people—it’s not just about money. This book is for writers who value great storytelling and connecting with readers, and who want to develop their career, not just spike ebook sales for a month.
“Authorpreneur” is filled with tips you can do during set up, how to get sales moving again, and all the strategies I’ve used to sell more books, doubling my sales every year and tripling my income.
