One of the most common scenarios in traditional publishing is publishers do branding and marketing for authors and their upcoming works. But what if authors come in new and do not have an existing audience?
April O’Leary offers one possible solution with her unique entrepreneurial path. As the founder of O’Leary Publishing, author of six books, host of the I’m Booked Podcast and a TED-style event Booked Naples, she says it all started when she saw “the power of having a book” and realized how a book can work as a tool to build up personal brands.
She hosts authors on her podcast, gets them on stage for speaking and video-taping, and develops elevator talks for them – by all means getting authors trained and confident of talking about their works in front of the camera and behind the mic. She learned her way of publishing through her hands-on practice – what her authors really need and how to meet this need.
