Are you a writer looking to get to the next level in your career? Are you trying to make your living as a writer and struggling? What started as a few side conversations, articles and blog posts grew into a website, and eventually into Author Essentials. With the support of the writer community, I’m privileged to bring what’s been called a great reference guide whether you are looking to publish your first work, or learning how to best build your career into a business.
What you will learn… the 5 Pillars Of Business:
Meet all of the people and jobs in the publishing industry, how they fit together, and what you can expect.
Building the foundation of your business and career, including paths to publication (New York publishing, small and mid-tier presses, and self-publishing), answering the burning question, what is an author platform and how to build it, and how to develop your plan.
Understanding sales and marketing in the publishing industry, how and where to sell books, and developing your personal author brand.
Establishing the operational side of any business from contracts and intellectual property, working with different tools and technologies (including social media), and how to design and build your website.
Learning how money works as an author, basic accounting, and how to monetize your work for your maximum benefit.
