Writing as a Business

Production, Distribution, and Marketing

Does this sound like Business 101? That’s because it is. Writers often get so caught up in the craft of writing that they fail to understand the business side of writing, which includes production (the writing process), distribution (making your book available to readers everywhere), and marketing (making your work discoverable).

This book explores the basics of those three things from start to finish.
