The Seven Step Guide To Authorpreneurship Book Review:
I want to personally thank Author Rochelle Carter for writing “The Seven Step Guide To Authorpreneurship.” This book is a great tool for aspiring authors who are thinking about publishing their first book. Rochelle shared so many tools with the reader to empower them on their successful publishing journey. Before you start to read this book you need to ask yourself this question.What is the definition of authorpreneurship? Authorpreneurship is the business of authoring and publishing your work. You will plan your process, create your content and distribute your book. According to Sharon C. Jenkins, Author of “Authorpreneurships: The Business of Writing,” she mentioned “self-published authors practice Authorpreneurship when they organize and manage content creation, publishing, marketing, sales and distribution of their end product. If you are an author desiring to profit of your message, then you are practicing the art of Authorpreneurship, the business of writing.” Some of us as Authors think just because we write and publish our book and the work is done. That isn’t true at all. Authors must treat their books like a business and not a hobby. Rochelle mentions a lot about taking ownership of our work.
This book really shows you the correct ways of the ins and outs of the publishing business. There was plenty information that helps aspiring authors in the process of getting their book published. Rochelle shared her experiences on how she published her book. She talks a lot about marketing, advertising and press release. I wish that she wrote this book a year ago because I made some mistakes in my own publishing journey. The good thing is after reading this book, I can now use the information that she provided for my next book that I am working on. This book will change your mindset about how to be successful in the publishing industry. If you want to become a successful author then you need to read this book for yourself. A lot of people don’t know the critical steps that they must be willing to take to succeed in their career as an author. Before you make a decision to write your book, you need to make an important decision on what route you want to take on publishing your book. You can decide the way of traditional publishing or self publishing. “The 7-Step Guide to Authorpreneurship” will guide you in the right direction on your publishing journey. Rochelle explains in great details of the difference between traditional publishing and self publishing. After that you will have a better understanding of the differences between the two publishing routes.
Rochelle is an expert of the publishing industry and you can learn a lot from her knowledge. She also tells us the importance of editing, budgeting and the launching of your book. She let you know there is no short cut in this business. You must follow every step to learn the craft of the publishing business if you want to be successful. After reading this book, I realized that I made some mistakes when I published my books. This information will help me to do better when I am working on my next book. She tells us that authors must be willing to pay it forward. We as authors must learn to support our fellow authors. We must work together to help each other to become successful in the publishing industry. Rochelle shows you the different ways on how you can pay it forward from sharing resources to cross promote. Personally, I always believe that Authors should learn to network with their fellow authors. Rochelle, thank you for writing this book to help us the right path to become an authorpreneurship. I recommend you to read this book often to learn the process of publishing your book. This book is a great gift to somebody that are thinking about writing their first book.
