Why Indies are Working Together

Success in self-publishing requires a quick response to trends, robust marketing, and frequent releases. Co-authoring makes it possible while avoiding burnout. Whether you’re a bestselling author with a large back list or a debut author, readers want more books.

That’s why many authors are working together. As a co-author, you can co-write a book. Or, you can share the same universe with other writers. Writing anthologies and boxsets is becoming more and more popular and this leads to a ever increasing need for a royalty management software for publishers.

Eliminate the frustration of calculating publishing royalties and focus more on your writing.

  • Share the workload, split expenses, and double your marketing efforts
  • Working together allows you to maintain a rapid release strategy
  • Boost visibility by leveraging your co-author’s audience.
  • Add more credibility to your brand (especially as a newbie)
  • Let the creativity flow and combine ideas, skills, and experiences
