About the Book

Fifteen authorpreneurs that have successfully mastered the art of Authorpreneurship are featured in Sharon C. Jenkins’ latest release, Will the R.E.A.L.

The term “authorpreneur” is a fairly new term in the literary industry. It combines the words “author” and “entrepreneur” to define the 21st Century author.
