A Tale of Two Authors

A few years ago, two authors had their books published. They were quite similar, these two authors. Both were better than average writers, both were very enthusiastic and both—as newly-published authors are—were filled with ambitious dreams for selling their books and building their audiences.

A few years after publication, we checked in with these authors to see what sort of success they had achieved.

Both had continued writing to improve their craft. Both had had second, third, or even fourth books published. And both, it turned out, had managed to sell a good number of copies of their books in a difficult, ever-changing publishing landscape.

But one author had sold fifteen hundred copies of his books. The other had sold fifteen thousand.

What Made the Difference?

An author’s success isn’t always determined by a difference in intelligence or talent or discipline. It isn’t that one author wants success and the other doesn’t.
The difference lies in what each author knows about marketing and how to use that knowledge.
That’s the point of the Authors Academy: to give our members marketing knowledge they can use to sell more books.

A Membership Program Unlike Any Other

The Authors Academy is a unique program. Each month, the Academy focuses on a book marketing topic of interest and significance to authors who are serious about selling more books. The webinars are created and curated by a team of experts who have years of book publishing and marketing experience.

We don’t spend time on subjects that won’t help you market your books.

In a publishing industry filled with “done-for-you” marketing services that don’t deliver, the Authors Academy gives you all the book marketing knowledge you need—when you need it.Authors Academy

About those two authors I mention at the beginning of this letter: They published their books at the same time and began marketing their books at the same time. So what made their results as authors different?

Knowledge. Useful knowledge. And its application.
