Authorpreneur – Coffee Break

What is an Authorpreneur?

Selling books, especially fiction books, is no walk in the park. Unless the park is on fire, molten lava is spreading like the Black Plague, and the rocks you’re hoping on are melting as you make your escape.  So what’s this “Authorpreneur” thing?  Well firstly, it’s not just another obnoxious word you constantly misspell.

Being an authorpreneur is about embracing the business of selling books. 

In this Coffee Break, we’re introducing a guest we interviewed for the iCreateDaily podcast and discussing some of the struggles of being an author for a living.

Topics Discussed:

  • An author we’re excited to interview
  • Non-fiction vs fiction market
  • Building an audience
  • Paying a PR team vs doing your own marketing
  • Market demand for storytellers
  • Keep on learning
  • Being healthy

About the author, Devani

Hey! I’m Devani, a multi-passionate creator who enjoys honing the craft of writing (mostly;)), photography, cooking, podcasting, learning about business, and growing brands. I co-host the iCreateDaily Podcast with LeAura Alderson (my mom), and co-own the iCreateDaily brand. I hope through the content and products we produce, you will be inspired to start, sustain, and succeed in your goals.

My non-business and artistic hobbies include: enjoying a good movie, discovering obscure but epic music, obsessing over The Beatles, and developing fictional stories in my head. My Maltese dog, Caspian, provides an insane amount of creative inspiration by just being his adorable self. #HeWokeUpLikeThat. 😉
