Presentation Synopsis

 For far too long, the dominant measure of success as an author has been the sale of books and becoming a bestselling author. But what if we could find a way to succeed with books beyond book sales? What would that look like? Ruth believes that through authorpreneurship (author entrepreneurship), this is possible. Using her personal experience and some case studies, Ruth will show how authorpreneurship can be a model for poverty alleviation, utilizing the ecosystems involved in writing and publishing books, exploring the utilization of books beyond book sales, and addressing the support authors need to make their journey a success.
