Spotlight Thursday: Sharon Jenkins and Authorpreneurship

It’s my pleasure today to shine the spotlight on Sharon Jenkins and her new book Authorpreneurship.

This is another book that belongs in every serious writer’s toolkit.

Authorprenuership 3-d cover

Jenkins has broken down the steps to success for both fiction and nonfiction writers, self-published, traditionally published, or small press published.

From the provided material:

Take control of your writing career!

What does it take to become a successful author in today’s publishing world?  It’s not enough to write a powerful book – today’s author must understand and leverage the business side of writing.  Authorpreneurship by Sharon Jenkins takes the aspiring writer from curiosity to career, combining both sides of publishing – author and entrepreneur – to empower writers with direction, publishing options, marketing solutions and business savvy to grow their career.

You’ll learn:

  • What publishing model is right for you
  • Branding and how it sells your book
  • Your publishing personality, and how to leverage it
  • A business plan for a successful book launch
  • How to manage your time
  • How to create a powerful product
  • Winning traits of a personal support team
  • How to financially support your dream
  • Strategic and easy marketing secrets – online and off!

And resources to help you apply what you learn!

From Carrie: I’ve read the book. It’s easy to read and digest. Each section has steps to help you implement the principles taught. There are checklists and worksheets and thought-provoking questions. This book alone will replace several others on my shelf that I won’t need anymore. Well done, Ms Jenkins. Well done, indeed.
