Money Management for Authors

Money Management for Authors: An Easy to Understand Guide to Business and Accounting for Authors

You, as an author, are a business! Learn how to manage your writing business the right way.

As an author, the products you produce are books, whether they are ebooks, printed books, or even audiobooks. Your business generates revenues (at least you hope it does) and incurs expenses (which they all do). Wouldn’t you like to know how to manage your money and business better?

Money Management for Authors will help you understand business basics and how to manage your money. If you don’t know what your business is making or its expenses, then you can’t manage it. The system that delivers this information is accounting. This book will give you an easy to understand overview of the accounting you need as an author and a basic system you can put into place today. As a fantasy author, and a former Certified Public Accountant, Tora Moon knows what an author needs to manage their money and business. She has used this expertise to help her make sense of her own writing and publishing career.

Inside, you will find:

  • Setting Up Your Business
  • Business Plan and Strategies
  • Tracking Your Money
  • Money-In; Money-Out
  • What You Own and What You Owe
  • Accounting Systems
  • Analyzing Your Business
  • And more…

No matter where you are in your writing career, or even if you’ve been selling books without a formal business set up for a while, it’s never too late to start to set up, manage, and track your writing business the right way! Get this book to learn how today.


What people are saying:

“A week ago, I was accounting illiterate. Sure, I could keep track of my expenses via receipts and my bank statement. I was familiar with the terminology (profit/loss statement, balance sheet, expenses). That was about it. I won’t say I’m ready to be a CPA, but armed with the information Tora provides in this book, I will be better able to treat my writing as a true business. And this is a mistake many of us make — not treating our profession as a business. Money Management for Authors can help you with that. Tora’s information isn’t just limited to spreadsheets and money management. As an author herself, she also offers information that every writer needs. Her links and resources will arm you with just about everything you need to be successful as an author. And even after several years of writing, I found information I was sorely lacking. This book will be staying in my library. Thanks, Tora.” T. Buchle
