The book description reads:
Do you have a published book? Do you know you now own a business? “Business Basics for Authors” describes the operations required to run your book business
The book is written in plain English, not business techni-babble
Once you have a book published, you own a business.The purpose of the business is to market and sell your book. The implication is that you, the author, can’t make ego-driven decisions: the decisions must be business-driven. While you’d rather be writing another book, still, you have to acquire the basics of operating a business.
Just because you now own a business doesn’t mean it has to be complicated. It’s a matter of understanding the business issues involved.
In this book, you’ll learn:
* Business basics
* Tax issues
* Profit & Loss
* Additional resources
* What other authors say
