Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business:

Ways to Achieve Financial Literary Success

There is more to being an author than writing, publishing, and selling a book. Many authors dive into the literary industry without first taking the time to learn the business side of being an author, let alone how to navigate the waters of the literary industry once they're in knee-deep. With an ever-changing industry, mastering the art of financial literary success is something that can take years, not to mention the mistakes that will be made during the learning phase; mistakes that could cost you money, and mistakes that could keep you from making money. But that is what this tool and resource is for; to shorten your learning curve so that you can start making money with your book and literary business now.


Act Like an Author, Think Like a Business: Ways to Achieve Financial Literary Success by Path To Publishing CEO & Founder, Joylynn M. Ross, is a resource every author should have in their author took kit. It's one that every publisher and every literary agent should provide to their clients.
