Henry Ford once said, “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”
Are you looking to learn how to become a more successful author or publisher?
If you are on a tight budget, the Internet abounds with numerous free opportunities for publishers and authors to learn more about writing, publishing, and promoting books.
Of course, the free information is usually not as in-depth or as thorough as the information you receive through paid subscriptions like the newsletter that Christian Small Publishers Association (or any other publishing or author association) offers with a membership. Many of our publishers tell us that the information in the CSPA newsletter alone is worth the price of their membership dues.
That said, there is still much to be gained from the free information available to you on the Web. I could list multiple blogs, e-newsletters, and other resources for you to find additional information on how to be more successful. Instead, today, I am going to point you to two free online magazines.
The first one is Book Business. This e-journal is published six times a year and offers publishers strategies for better management. It is produced by the same people who put on the Publishing Business Conference & Expo each year. You can read the magazine online on the website, or sign-up to receive this magazine free-of-charge via your email inbox.
The Author Entrepreneur Magazine is a new publication. This magazine is published monthly and is dedicated to helping author entrepreneurs build a successful and sustainable business. You can read this journal in PDF format on the magazine’s website.
Learning is truly the path to success for both authors and publishers. If you can’t afford more, then at least take advantage of these free learning tools and then put what you learn into practice.
