So you've written a book or you want to write one! This raises many questions, but where are the answers? #RPBP
If you are a new, debut or aspiring author then welcome to our illustrious band of bright-eyed, eager to learn authors and writers. We are on this journey together and the aim of my new series is to share everything that works, and that which doesn't, so that hopefully it will help to make your journey a bit smoother.
Book 1 The Accidental Author set the scene and laid out the resources and experiences I encountered getting to the stage of pressing the publish button. Book 2 moves the authorship process up a gear as we look art the authorpreneur toolkit which will help to get you started on promoting yourself as an author and your books as a variable product. ‘The Amateur Authorpreneur’ will describe, using the What, Why Where, When, Who & How template, the process of taking the first steps into combining the craft of being an author with the business of marketing your work.
So you've written a book or you want to write one - Congratulations! Things to consider: What does it offer readers? Why will they buy it? Where are your readers? When will you publish it? Who are you? How do you promote it!
