Writing and publishing eBooks for Kindle and other online retailers is not only a great way to get your writing published, it can also prove to be highly beneficial for your business, especially if you write a non-fiction book that highlights your area of expertise.

If you’re a published author, you probably know, your book alone is not likely to make you rich. Sure, it happens, but the truth is the majority of authors don’t make a living from their books alone, although your book is often the most important piece of the puzzle. It’s everything you create after publication, the empire you build based on the core concepts of your published work that is more lucrative.
Your book lends you credibility as an expert in your field and opens doors of opportunity, broadening the stage to reach your tribe and share your message. Now that you have a book, you can schedule speaking engagements, create companion products, develop mentoring and coaching programs, launch online courses—the high-end items that will become the basis of your business.Read More
If your book is non-fiction and teaches something of value, it’s pretty easy to break the chapters into sections and create an online course by repurposing the content. Perhaps you don’t have a book just yet? On the flip side, creating a book from your online course can make the task of writing a book all the more easier. With transcription services such as Rev and Trint, it’s easy to have our audios and videos transcribed into text, offering us plenty of content to work with when it comes time to write a book.

But the foundation of your course can be crafted from your book, and then you add additional content, bonus materials, video tutorials, audio, tele-classes, Zoom sessions, a closed Facebook groups for support, and access to YOU on a more personal level. For your tribe, that’s priceless.Read More
Audiobooks are the fastest growing sector in the publishing industry, so you can bet that as soon as Authorpreneur was published in print and eBook, the next logical step was for me to have it available in audiobook. After all, I wrote about audiobooks in Authorpreneur as a way to generate additional income from your book!
Audiobooks are a nice way you can make additional income off the publication of your book. If you have a publisher, they will likely handle the creation of your eBook and audiobook, but if you’ve self-published you can also publish your book as an audiobook and make additional income from your already created content. Always be repurposing that content, boys and girls!Read More
