What Your Author Business Needs to Succeed


After working with small businesses over many years, these are my top 10 items which I feel every author business (really any business) needs to be successful. If you haven’t already implemented any of these items, I highly encourage you to consider what you need to do to add them to your business processes.

Writing and publishing is a business. For your writing to reach the people who need and want to read your stories or books, you need a strong, healthy business.

These ten ideas span various aspects of your business and places in your writing career. Some you may need to add as soon as you close close this document. Others you can do more slowly, taking your time to implement, if you haven’t yet, or to readdress and change if you need to.

Having these items in place ensures your business has strong foundations to grow and be the success you want.
