Author Power by Lynn Isenberg reveals case studies and how-to scenarios for authors to empower themselves to generate income and enhance distribution before (and after) publishing. Foreword by SJ Hodges. Special thanks to SpacePen.com.
Author Power is packed with invaluable information, stories, road maps, and experiences about how to empower yourself as an author, publisher, marketer, and impresario. The Impresario is like the book conductor who pushes your publishing forward. You must be a passionate impresario (producer who handles finances and pulls everything together) to ensure a profitable book and success story.
This is a comprehensive approach to a new way of publishing that puts the economic power in the pen and wallet of the author to continue to create and build win-wins for authors, publishers, and additional value for readers. This book teaches you how to leverage the advent of technology and changing economic models to protect the livelihood of the creator. It guides impresario authors through every step in a new way of publishing, whether it's self-publishing, hybrid or partnership publishing, or even traditional publishing. It opens the pages and shifts the paradigm to honor the words of expression, new ideas, and the inherent foundations of democracy. Are you ready?

If you're a writer or author, blogger, freelancer, poet, or playwright, or anything related to the industry, you're concerned with marketing. You have to market yourself, your brand, your projects, your abilities, your know-how and experience, your expertise, your ideas. In short, everything. What if you had a book that would help you tackle all of that, and enable you to find ways to make money off your projects even before you'd actually published? Allow me to introduce to you the nonfiction work AUTHOR POWER: PROFIT BEFORE YOU PUBLISH, by Lynn Isenberg. This tremendous resource incorporates Isenberg's own experience, suggestions, and personal anecdotes (both about what worked and what didn't work) to underscore eminently doable steps that any author (published or not) can take to get their book or project in front of an audience more quickly and effectively. From making a profit on your project prior to its publication to carefully designing your personal brand to extending invitations for other organizations or businesses (or both!) to join you in your branding endeavors, AUTHOR POWER is the kind of resource every industry professional needs on his or her reference shelf. I guarantee you'll have at least one "I never thought of that before!" revelation moment while reading, and that Isenberg's reasonable, practical directions will help you apply that very idea to your own platform. Being an author (blogger, poet, playwright) isn't easy. You've signed up for a lot of hard work, the kind that demands commitment, consistency, discipline, patience, and creativity. But doesn't it feel better to know that others have trodden the paths ahead of you and have advice to share? # # # Author: Lynn Isenberg Title: AUTHOR POWER: PROFIT BEFORE YOU PUBLISH ISBN: 978-0-99106-851-7 Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this work from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest, though not necessarily positive, review.
