The Benefits of Public Speaking for Authorpreneurs

As an authorpreneur it is easy to get caught up in the digital web of social media and technology platforms.  They are, of course, great marketing tools and can bring about huge benefits. But remember that, no matter what your genre, the best marketing tool is yourself. And that means that you have to be prepared to speak publicly about yourself and your work.READ MORE

Why you need an author website

Publishing looks a lot different than it used to. Authors spent so much time fighting for a coveted spot on a well-known publisher’s roster, who would then do so much of the leg work for them promoting a book and getting the word out there. Self-publishing is more common than not now, and authors are taking control and power over their brand and how they want to be promoted.READ MORE

Canadian vs American English

Does Your Content Speak your language? Canadian vs. American English

I have previously written on what spell check is and is not. Now I ask, do you know if your content speaks your language and that of your audience?

American English vs. British Canada English

By being consistent with your choice of language throughout your emails, marketing material, business correspondences or book, you will keep the flow and clarity in your writing. By setting your spell and grammar check to either English-United States or English-Canada you can keep consistency in your work. Based on the following differences, your cultural and educational background and the market you most serve, I leave the decision to you.READ MORE

WHAT'S INVOLVED IN SECOND EDITION PRINT RUNS

Self-Publishing: What’s Involved in Second Edition Print Runs?

It’s nearing the time to update your book. Why would you have another edition instead of a reprint? That’s when you have information in your book that might be out of date. Or information that is no longer accurate as the last edition. Also you, in essence, still have a few copies of your last edition available and still selling, so your next edition would in essence be “competing” with the last edition until it’s sold out.READ MORE

do's and don'ts of self publishing

The Do’s and Don’ts of Self-publishing

There are so many Do’s and Don’ts, here are just a few…

Do your homework – Don’t assume that everything that you find on the internet (in terms of publishing services) are the same. Personally, as I have done my research of what is being offered out there, no two are alike, but all offer similar services. Not only that, but always check again when you’re just about to hire them. Services and prices can change over time. If you’re researching now for 6 months to 1 year from now, definitely pricing can change (for the better or worse).

 

Do schedule time – if publishing is one of your goals, you need to schedule the time to work on your publication. Be it writing, editing or working with your publishing service. The most successful people are those that complete their task. And for them to complete their tasks, they schedule them.
