Certified Author-ity Authors

We set out a while ago to unconditionally raise the bar of what being an Author-ity Author really means.  

What is an Author-ity Author?

An Author-ity is an author who is taken seriously by their market because not only is their material excellent, they have mastered the ability to write it, present it, and promote it well.   

Authority Authors offers a complete range of services for Non-Fiction authors wanting to write, produce, publish and market a book profiling their expertise wisdom, stories.  But for some authors, we go a long way past this.

For some authors, they will become ‘Certified Author-ity Authors’.  Indie authors who have self published under our care and guidance to the highest quality.  And for these authors we offer a representation level of service that includes the following:

  • Agent style representation at International Book Fairs, with Book Distributors, and with other international agents seeking foreign rights options and third party opportunities.
  • Promotion and cross-promotion of their books alongside other Author-ity Authors on our own website.
  • A categorization of ‘Author-ity Author’ status which serves to differentiate their books from mainstream self published books in the marketplace.
  • Ongoing guidance and care of the book, author, and access to our assistance in all areas pertaining to care and promotion of their books.
  • The right to add this logo to their book, website/landing page.
