August 10, 2020 – Patricia Mayo, founder of The Savvy Author, is offering authors a fresh approach to profitably publish their life’s work through the Vital Savvy program, starting August 17. Over the course of the next year, participants will experience customized-support as they navigate writing, publishing and marketing their words.
The publishing industry is not what it once was as now, advances on a book deal are few and far between to those not on the Celebrity A-List. Even if an author is able to secure an advance, it’s rare to make a significant income from book sales. Quite simply, the days of writers making major revenue from book sales are long gone.
“The good news is these changes are really opportunity calling,” explains Mayo. “The gatekeepers have left their post and if you’ve got a message worth reading, the only thing stopping the world from reading it, is you.”
“The publishing industry experienced a major shift in the last three years,” she continues, “and I stand to use that shift to set artistry free, by any means necessary, including revenue strategies that only became possible in the age of Amazon.”
Thanks to the rise of the internet and outlets such as Udemy, YouTube and the popularity of on-line courses, authors are able to expand their book’s contents to be consumed by a wider audience on multiple platforms. Vital Savvy shows writers how to incorporate these options to build a business beyond their books.
Patricia Mayo is a former ghostwriter and editor of numerous New York Times Bestsellers and has over 20 years-experience in digital media. Through The Savvy Author, she helps non-fiction authors leverage digital media platforms to either land traditional publishing deals and/or increase sales using various media. Mayo is a marketing specialist for an Inc. 1000 company, landing all of their 83 authors on Amazon’s Top 100 list as well as securing speaking slots at SXSW and IBM.
