In the past, success in self-publishing was often gauged based on the reputation and critical review of a book. More recently, author income has become a standard way to measure the success of an author and publishing firm. Discover how this new model has affected the way authors and publishers manage their projects.
The New Author Business Model
There are many ways to measure author success:
- Number of published projects
- Audience and reach
- Number of copies of books sold
- Literary prizes and awards
However, nowadays many authors view themselves primarily as a business rather than an artist or professional. This independent mindset has given writers a whole new perception of their role and their definition of success. To satisfy this current trend of attitudes of authors, particularly those using Amazon ebook publishing, it’s important for publishing companies to create analytics that enable accurate measurements of author income as a measurement for success.
