Featured Quotes

“If you’re still new to being an author, figuring out your author brand is really the most important place to start your journey. You need to take the time to work on your brand message, to figure out who you are as an author very authentically, what type of reading experience you offer.”

“Just with brand equity, readers are 15 times more likely to purchase a book from an author whose brand they recognize, whose names they recognize. That’s why you see the top 1% of authors are making a killing now because people go to what they know. If you’re a new author, establishing that brand, building that brand, investing time to make sure you’ve got the brand message clear and you’re getting it in front of the right people is really important.”
