Books published by New York publishing houses tend to garner a higher degree of respect than those published outside of the Big Apple. Authors with New York books often find it easier to get media attention than those using other methods, such as small presses or print-on-demand publishers.
When signing a book contract with a traditional New York Publisher the author loses control of the book’s content and cover design as well as the rights to the book. The author typically earns less than 10 per cent of the sale, which translates to less than one dollar per book sold. If the author hires an agent, the profit margin is less, because the agent’s fee is 10 (and sometimes 15) per cent of the author’s share of the profit.
Margaret Merrill tapped into a system that provides a complete authoring and business development system with instant access to a New York Publisher.
David Hancock of Morgan James Publishing offers the advantages of a New York Publisher without the drawbacks. His entrepreneurial publishing model gives authors control over their own books, influence over cover design, and most importantly, his authors retain full rights to their books and earn a 20 per cent commission on each sale.
Hancock teamed up with Glenn Dietzel of Awakened LLC, whose Entrepreneurial Authoring Program teaches clients to write a money-making book in 12 hours of actual writing time. Clients who complete the program discover how to write a book that is “entrepreneurially sound” and have access to Morgan James Publishing, without writing a book proposal or going through years of submission and rejection. Beryl Wolk, creator of the infomercial, is currently working with Dietzel to create the first infomercial that teaches people to write a book.
Dietzel’s Entrepreneurial Authoring Program and individual business mentoring teach clients how to create a book that is an entrepreneurially sound lead generator for a well-structured business. A book that is entrepreneurially sound naturally leads readers to interact with the author. The book is specifically designed as an invitation to take part in the author’s other services. Special offers and free gifts of value to the reader are tucked into the pages of the book.
Merrill truly adores doing purpose work with clients. She started off as a student of someone else’s coaching system but she realized that she would have more credibility with her own system and her own book. Live the Life You Love: Discover Your Purpose and Live It with Intention is only the “business card” for her thriving coaching business and a nonprofit organization that is helping keep the Navaho tradition alive. Her book has paved the way for selling 5 figure coaching packages and accessing millions of dollars of grant money for her 501 (c) 3.
