Publisher's Summary

The idea that authors can't make money is 100% false.

And no, you don t have to be famous or have a huge online following.

In less than one calendar year, Nathan Barry made over $200,000 by independently publishing three books he wrote himself.

Making money from book sales is wonderful, but it s just the beginning. Getting a raise, landing a new job, and gaining new clients are all direct results of writing and publishing a book.

In Authority, Nathan shows you:

  • How not to be a poor, starving author
  • How to establish a consistent writing habit
  • How to implement a successful marketing strategy
  • How to replace traditional publishing methods with methods that can earn far more, in far less time
  • How to position yourself as an authority in your chosen field and enjoy benefits far beyond simply making money

    "Useful - some good gems inside!"

    Short listen, with good advice on email marketing, launching products online and how to work efficiently.

    A few speech "typos" that slipped through editing though! Instances where the author rereads a sentence from the beginning. Not what I'm used to hearing, here at Audible.

    Apart from that, the narration is very friendly, warm and was in fact partially a reason I bought the book:) I could hear from the sample that the narration was so good that I wanted to try to emulate it, in my own work (I sometimes practice my voice by mimicking others).

    "Nathan delivers with Authority"

    I've really enjoyed reading Nathan's blog and I'm also a user of his ConvertKit platform. I've known about his books for a year, but finally got around to reading Authority. I loved it. Much of what is in this book I feel as though I've heard Nathan say before or have seen him practice (such as the free course segments). However, it was really great to hear all of it again in Authority. There were also a lot of really great things in this book I hadn't heard before, such as the detail in which Nathan describes the different platforms in which you can format and write your ebook.

    All this to say, would definitely recommend this book. A great read for anyone looking to self publish successfully.

    "I finally understand how to make money with writing."

    I've known Nathan for awhile now, but hadn't actually read his work. I guess when the time is right, the teacher will appear. Being able to hear him read and explain went a long way in me connecting with the process.

    He laid out the material well. His mother helped him edit it and together they did a fantastic job. Authority gives such a clear example of the 'why' you need to be writing.

    Listen to it if you've ever wanted to write, create digital products, or have an exit plan from a job you don't like (or maybe even do like).

    Thanks Nathan!

    "A methodology for creative enterprisers"

    This book is on point in terms of how I see jobs in the modern economy. There will be fewer and fewer jobs and more people will build businesses like Nathan Barry discusses in this book. He's software specific so it's a little boring for some, but this methodology should be seen as a pathway to be used by anyone seeking to build their own thing. From oil drillers to actors, this book has something for you.

    "A shot in my business arm"

    Packed full of in valuable information to grow my business, this was a great audiobook to listen to at the gym or on my morning walks. Nathan Barry has talent for telling story that comes across as personal, yet very valuable for the business person. I can't wait for more material from Mr. Berry.
