If you’ve been wondering how you can make money writing books, then this episode is for you!

Believe it or not, writing can be a lucrative opportunity to generate income and build a reputable personal brand as an author. Of course, there are things like marketing and sales involved but once your book is out into the world, this process becomes second nature. So, can you get paid to write a book? Absolutely yes!

Today, we bring you three ways you can earn money by writing books, the difference between them, and which is best for you depending on your particular situation. We talk about book proposals, how you can make a long-term impact with your book and continually make money off of it, and much more!

If you haven’t listened to episode 6 where I interview multi-award-winning author Jenn Givhan, then go back and check it out! It’s all about the importance of being patient when publishing your book, how to deal with rejection as a writer, and how to know when your book is ready to be published.

I want to know who you are and where you’ve been! Come hang out with me in the Writers Squad Facebook group and over on Instagram @laurenmariefleming. I can’t wait to chat with you there! You can also stay tuned for new weekly episodes @businessschoolforwriters, and if you want to spread the love even further, consider subscribing, rating, and reviewing!
