As 21st-century style self-publishing has matured, it has become increasingly accepted that indie authors who are serious about making a living from self-published books need to treat their writing like a business. To indies with a business background, this is a natural progression, while for those whose careers have lain elsewhere, it’s a harder transition and there’s much to be learned.
The good news is that a growing amount of guidance exists aimed specifically at aspiring authorpreneurs to help them make the right business decisions and to divide their time effectively between the various stages of creating, promoting and marketing their books, and how to invest effectively in all parts of the process.
