Authorpreneur: How to Build a Business Around Your Book by Nina Amir - Mini Review Tour

Wednesday, February 04, 2015
& giveaway contest!

Don't give up your day job. At times, it seems like the mantra of writers. Of course we all dream of abandoning the 9 to 5 to immerse ourselves in a world of words. But is it possible? Does that world exist for people other than James Patterson, Sue Grafton and a few elite others?

Nina Amir not only believes that world exists but she wants to give everyone a map to help them find that world. Authorpreneur: How to Build a Business Around Your Book explains how, if you want to earn a living as an author, you have to think beyond the book. Not only that, think like someone who is more than an author. Think like an entrepreneur.

Ebook: 85 pages
Publisher: Pure Spirit Creations (October 22, 2014)

Review by Jodi Webb

I am good with words. I am not good with numbers, money, business plans. I suspect in that way I am similar to many writers. Nina Amir's book Authorpreneur: How to Build a Business Around Your Book addresses that shortcoming in many writers by providing a step by step map to transforming a book into a business that provides an author many opportunities to earn.

When I say "step by step" I am not exaggerating. Amir will provide an idea such as webinar. From there she will provide you with the names of several platforms you can use to set up webinars along with the positives and negatives of each platform. Then she provides both creative and technical directions on how to produce a webinar: how to transform your book/knowledge into a webinar and tips on technical issues such as when to hold a webinar, producing online registration pages, etc. I was amazed by just how much information was in this 85 page ebook! Even if you just adopt one of the ideas Amir provides you will be getting your money's worth. But don't think this book is all about online opportunities. Amir provides the same detailed attention to things just as speaking engagements and creating mini-books.

On the surface, this book lends itself more to nonfiction writing but with some adaption fiction or memoir writers will find information they can use. It will definitely have you evaluating your book in a new way. I recommend that all writers read Authorpreneur: How to Build a Business Around Your Book and see where Amir's ideas will lead them.

Thanks so much for this review! I hope all authors will think beyond the book and create thriving careers for themselves as authorpreneurs.

Angela Mackintosh said...

Wonderful review! This is such an interesting concept and because of technology, it's true now more than ever that authors can build businesses around their books. And you've done this successfully, Nina! I'm looking forward to reading your book--it sounds like it has ideas many authors can put to use right away. I used Amazon's Look Inside feature and I see you have a section for writers like me who are still in the idea stage with a nonfiction book. Super helpful! :)

This is something I think I'm starting to do...but could probably use a step-by-step help too! :) One of my critique group members is also reviewing this on our blog (LIT LADIES), so I'm excited to see what she says. We are both stay-at-home moms and writers, so it's great to get that perspective, too.

Thanks Angela and Margo! I hope you find the book useful. I've tried to be quite detailed so anyone can follow the steps. Let me know if you have questions...and please post a review on Amazon (and elsewhere) if you like the book!
