Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 15, 2014
Novelist, Screenwriter and Producer Lynn Isenberg revolutionizes publishing in her new book “Author Power: Profit Before You Publish” pre-released today. Author, brand strategist and former studio executive, Lynn Isenberg challenges convention with comprehensive case studies and roadmaps applicable to all forms of content, including film, TV, digital, books, and events.
The literary eco-system has shifted dramatically, with authors expected to cover initial print-runs and with e-books selling for $1.99. In response to these challenges and more, Isenberg reveals game-changing solutions to overcome and circumvent barriers to profit. A 5 star NetGalley review applauds this approach, “In ‘Author Power,’ Lynn Isenberg shows you how you can turn around your fortune as a writer. The author shares literally hundreds of ways you can raise money for your writing project before the book hits the stands. ‘Author Power’ is a must-have book for every published, self-published, and wannabe writer.”

Book Editor and Author SJ Hodges praises “Author Power” in the Forward, “This book comes out of decades of Isenberg’s work as an author and as an artist advocate working in traditional publishing, Hollywood, self-publishing, and online. Because she crosses the borders, bobbing and weaving from the written page to the World Wide Web, she has an intimate awareness and involvement in a world that most authors never see: the digital monetization of their blood, sweat, and tears. So I encourage writers to read this book cover to cover and to enact and/or adapt Lynn's ideas quickly.”

Isenberg presented a preview of “Author Power” at the 2014 Frankfurt Book Fair, where it was received enthusiastically.
Pre-publication revenue-making methods depicted in “Author Power” more than covered the publishing and marketing costs for Isenberg’s five titles, as well as the author’s tuition for a master's degree. And Isenberg has duplicated the process for others. As Chief Creative Officer of Focus Media Consulting, Inc.,( based in LA and Austin, Isenberg works with content creators, media companies, and Fortune 500 brands to achieve their goals in film, television, digital, and book platforms.
Scott Turow's NYT op-ed article 'The Slow Death of the American Author,' inspired Isenberg to educate others on these successes in “Author Power: Profit Before You Publish.” “I knew I had to share the alternative solutions I discovered and have been practicing for years,” declares Isenberg, “especially with the advent of digital publishing six years ago. The landscape is plentiful for profit; one just needs to know how to work it.”

In addition to writing, producing and consulting, Lynn Isenberg is founder of the Hollywood LIT Retreat (, where she hosts gatherings of entertainment industry leaders focused on the future of cross-over storytelling. At the latest urban retreat, Screenwriter/Novelist/Producer Anthony McCarten, who wrote the Golden Globe nominated and Oscar contender “The Theory of Everything”, discussed the art of adapting books to the big screen. Isenberg’s Hollywood LIT nourishes writers’ souls, and upcoming “Author Power” workshops are bound to help nourish their pocketbooks too.
“Author Power” is poised to shift the publishing paradigm by honoring and empowering writers with alternative ways to ensure profits. Ready in time for the holidays, “Author Power: Profit Before You Publish” is an ideal gift to fulfill those literary New Year’s resolutions.
