In my experience over the last ten years working with authors, they all have one thing in common. They have the story idea but are less certain about the entire book process, including after publishing. Looking back I wish I could have handed each person this book and said read this first.
If you have ever thought of writing a book – Start here. Before you jump into a book project, before the first keystroke – Read This. It will give you the solid base needed to start a successful journey to writing and becoming a published author.

Bourgeois even answers questions about NFTs. Applying them to an ebook is challenging for a variety of reasons. But as he writes, NFTs offer some unique and expansive opportunities for authors. Bourgeois explains in his book some of the possibilities – here is an example:
- What are the top 5 reasons an author creates NFTs for their book covers, and how will it help them grow their income?
- Ownership: NFTs allow authors to establish ownership and provenance of their digital assets, such as book cover art.
- Monetization: NFTs can be sold to collectors, providing a new revenue stream for authors.
- Limited Edition: NFTs can be used to create limited editions of book covers, increasing their perceived value and rarity.
- Promotion: NFTs can promote upcoming book releases or generate buzz around an author's work.
- Fan engagement: NFTs can be used as a way for authors to connect with fans and build a community around their work.
When an NFT is sold, the author receives income from the initial sale. What makes NFT special is that the author can arrange to earn up to 10% of all resales from the same NFT no matter how many times it is resold. Thus, the author can continue to earn 10% off of each resale, no matter what the price of the resale is.
B. Alan Bourgeois also touches on the fear of (AI) putting authors out of business. He feels that despite artificial intelligence's (AI) capabilities to automate tasks, it cannot fully replace the need for human writers. While AI may produce content similar to human-written text, it lacks the creativity, nuance, and personal touch that distinguishes human writing. Furthermore, writing entails more than merely typing words on a page. It requires research, critical thinking, and effective communication of complex emotions and ideas. These are skills that AI algorithms currently lack and may not fully be developed any time soon.
This book is a must-have for aspiring writers. It covers virtually everything you need to know about being Authorpreneur and even addresses the root cause of many of the challenges you may face. The value of this information alone is worth the cost of the book. Don't miss out on Bourgeois' comprehensive guide.
