Empowering Authors: Our Approach to Publishing and Promoting Books

Updated: Apr 1

In a recent conversation with a passionate writer, let's call her Sarah, we delved into the intricacies of promoting books, handling royalties, and empowering authors in the publishing industry. Sarah's inquiries shed light on the challenges many authors face, and I'm excited to share some insights from our discussion.

 

Sarah began by asking about our promotional strategies and our use of Amazon for publishing. I explained that, yes, we do utilize Amazon's KDP platform for collaborative books. However, we've chosen to prioritize impact over profit by donating to charities on behalf of our authors, recognizing the modest royalties from online sales.

 

Understanding the importance of authors having control over their work and additional revenue streams, we also offer wholesale book options. This allows authors like Sarah to purchase books at a reduced rate and keep 100% of the profits from reselling them, empowering them to make a difference in their communities.

 

Sarah expressed frustrations about not receiving payment from Amazon after trying to publish books by herself in the past, echoing the challenges many authors encounter. In response, I empathized with Sarah's experience and reiterated our commitment to empowering authors. Our company was founded with the mission of making publishing more accessible and equitable for independent authors.

 

When it comes to solo book projects, we take a hands-on approach to empower authors like Sarah. We provide guidance on navigating the publishing process and advocate for authors to retain control over their work, such as by maximizing royalties through publishing platforms like KDP.

 

Our conversation underscored the importance of education and empowerment in the publishing industry. By equipping authors with the knowledge and resources they need to thrive, we aim to create a more inclusive and supportive publishing community.

 

To fellow authors facing similar challenges, I offer this advice: advocate for yourself, seek out publishers who prioritize your creative autonomy, and never underestimate the value of your voice. Together, we can redefine the publishing landscape and ensure that every author's story has the opportunity to be heard.
