Calling All Writers!

Authorpreneur: How to Build a Business Around Your Book by Nina Amir – Mini Review Tour & Giveaway Contest!47FD9726-306D-4C44-88BC-5212961DAD20

Writers rarely are able to support themselves on their book sales alone. Therefore, they need to find other sources of support. Nina Amir, who wrote Authorpreneur, believes that writers need to become skilled recyclers of their published material, whether fiction or non-fiction, so they can supplement their earnings doing something they love: writing.

Most writers are already familiar with on-line marketing and technology. They have had to become acquainted with these tools in order to sell their books. But their skills don’t need to end there. Nor does their income need to depend only on book publishing.

As Amir says, “If you want to support yourself as an author, write a book for the purpose of making money from related products and services. Write a book because you want to build a business around your book. Whether you write fiction or nonfiction, consider how to turn your book into a business.” This requires thinking like an entrepreneur.

If you want to discover how to extend the reach of your published books, read Authorpreneur. In it, Amir outlines the many ways to exploit one’s knowledge through a variety of activities.

Another one of Nina’s ebooks, The Nonfiction Book Proposal Demystified, will be on a mini tour during the month of March. Don’t miss the launch on the Muffin on March 4.
