Writing as a Business

Production, Distribution, and Marketing

Writing is a business, and it is time we started treating it like one. Freelance writer, author, editor, and publisher Troy Lambert breaks the business into its most essential parts: production, distribution, and marketing. But he goes deeper than that.

This book offers tips and tricks about when and how to hire help, what you can do yourself, and how to navigate the ever-changing publishing industry as an author from the viewpoint of someone who has done it themselves. This is a book you can refer to over and over again on your author journey.
