Successful Authors – What They Do Differently

by | Author Success, Sell More Books, SG

What is the difference between financially successful authors and those who are not successful?

Financially successful authors create more content. In other words, they have more product on the (virtual) shelves. It goes back to the concept that all indie authors are building a business. The author is the primary asset of the business.

The writing – books – are the product of the business. The more products you have, the more revenue you earn in the book world.

Financially successful authors have twice as many books on average and earn three to five times as much as the less successful. BTW we are talking about output – the product has to be engaging writing “not typing.”

Reworking is part of the process. Beta- Readers are part of the process. Many people put in thousands of hours but not thousands of hours of revisions.

It’s simple really; you have to write more, better books!
