What is an Author Business Coach?
“Every new book is a start-up business and needs to be viewed as such if it is to realise its potential”
Getting your book published, no matter how you achieve that, is not enough on its own to guarantee success. There is one new book published every 20 minutes in the UK. that works out to 184,000 every year – and that doesn’t include ebooks and those that are self-published. Not every book is going to fulfil its potential and make money for its author. If you want your book to be one of the ones that does, then the time to plan for that is now, not after you have written it.
An Author Business Coach is interested in much more than helping you to create a great manuscript and to help you with the mechanics of publishing. They are there to help to give you clarity on all of the elements needed to make it a commercial success and create a robust business around your words
