Virtual Princeton Public Library

Author and publisher Karen Hodges Miller presents on "authorpreneurs": writers who understand that success in today’s market means working diligently to promote your books and brand to the public.

The day of the self-published author is here to stay. The number of authors who are self-publishing has increased over 400,000 per year for the past four years. Over 1.5 million new books were self-published last year. KDP, Amazon’s direct publishing service, produces the vast number of these books. Most of their services are free, making it easy for anyone to publish a book without putting up any money. That means that many would-be authors think they can do it all themselves at no cost. But as the competition increases, the more difficult it becomes for readers to find new authors. Miller gives advice on how to become a successful authorpreneur in today’s competitive publishing market.

Miller is CEO and publisher at Open Door Publications, a company which specializes in helping authors navigate the world of publishing in the 21st century. The company assists both published and first-time authors with the wide variety of skills and tasks needed to successfully write, publish, and market a book. Miller has written seven books, both fiction and non-fiction, as well as countless newspaper and magazine articles in her 30-year career. Her newest book is "Self-Publishing: You Can Do This!"
