From Authors to Entrepreneurs (F.A.T.E.) - The Personal Side of Indie Publishing

Rate this book
In November 2009, Omar Luqmaan-Harris sent a text message to Stephanie Casher: "What if we started our own publishing company?" With those fateful words, Omar and Stephanie recruited James W. Lewis and stepped off the long, twisty road toward traditional book publication, and charted a new course. The three authors reclaimed destiny under the umbrella of their own creation, The Pantheon Collective (TPC). The goal was ambitious: establish a new publishing company, finish the edits/rewrites for the first book, cultivate an online presence, and launch their debut novel at an Atlanta book conference -- all within six months. "Ambitious" is an understatement. "Crazy" is more like it. In a no-holds-barred, reality-check look at independent book publication, Omar, Stephanie, and James reveal the behind-the-scenes chaos of prepping a new novel for launch. Read about the personal highs and lows from the unique perspectives of the author (James), editor (Stephanie) and marketing expert (Omar); and how the dream of publishing books was almost derailed by doubt, fear, stress, and infighting. Through it all, they persevered. These three inexperienced, yet determined "authorpreneurs" joined forces to shake up the publishing world, ultimately publishing four books in two years, selling nearly 30,000 copies, and receiving several literary awards. F.A.T.E. - From Authors to Entrepreneurs is a tale of burnout, conflict resolution, teamwork, and ultimately, success. TPC's tagline says it all: Three Minds. One mission. No Limits.
