Alesha Brown Of Fruition Publishing Concierge Services: How Journaling Helped Me Be More Calm, Mindful And Resilient

Forcing you to be mindful. Life is full of noise, distractions, and busyness. The time you take to journal forces you to be one in the moment, address the situation at hand and then create a solution. Too often people make situations worse by avoiding them altogether and using vices like sex, alcohol, or drugs to soothe them in an attempt to avoid what is unpleasant or undesirable.

The Inaugural Issue is now available (print & digital)

As a bestselling author and award-winning entrepreneur, Alesha knows all too well how the majority of authors do not know how to market their books and services. As the CEO of Fruition Publishing Concierge Services™, she devotes her publishing company to helping authors find their voice, monetize their expertise, and create profitable author platforms.

Ms. Brown has served as a celebrity interviewer and Managing Editor for various podcasts and magazines before creating her own, Published! Magazine™, the premier magazine devoted to current and aspiring authors, book lovers, and the companies that promote them. Each issue spotlights the genius behind the books that should be a part of your library if they aren’t already. Too many published authors are victims of being the “best-kept secret.” Published! strives to put an end to that and place their visions, passions, and message in front of those who need to hear it.

This past week from May 16th to the 18th, Fruition Publishing Concierge Services™ founder, Alesha Brown, had the exclusive opportunity to represent the publishing house by attending Meta’s Meta Boost Gather 2022 live in Washington D.C. Meta, previously known as Facebook, hosts an event in which small business owners from all across the United States come together to learn, network, and grow in friendship. Alesha received her invitation to be one of the 500 leaders that were flown out, hosted, and celebrated for this year’s event, courtesy of Meta.

The Enigma of Book Sales

I was not shocked when I read journalist Elizabeth A. Harris’s 2021 New York Times article “Millions of Followers? For Book Sales, ‘It’s Unreliable.’ ” I was intrigued by the content of the article, and knew this was the perfect teachable moment to share with indie authors.

There is a belief that having an existing following is the most certain way to ensure a book sells big. Yet that is not always the case, as the experiences of the celebrities highlighted in the article show.

With more than 4,100 members, IBPA is the largest trade association for independent publishers in the US. While this organization has always been a great resource for newer publishers, IBPA has in recent years—under the leadership of CEO Angela Bole, an excellent staff, and exceptional board and committee volunteers—grown into a strong community of traditional, hybrid, and author-publisher presses of all sizes and experience levels.
 
Alesha is excited for her two-year term that starts on July 1, 2022. She will continue her diversity, equity, and inclusion focus for people of color & other marginalized voices.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP

From Abuse to Award-Winning Entrepreneur: The Journey to Success, A Founder’s Story with Alesha Brown

Alesha shares her story of how she survived child abuse and leaped into entrepreneurship. Read this interview to see the one business lesson she would tell a startup founder. 

Women’s History Month 2022: Publishing Entrepreneur Proves a Woman’s Pen is Mightier Than Her Sword

“There are few industries in which the status and profiles of women need to be raised more than the publishing world. In the traditionally male-dominated industry, women have historically been paid less than men, even though women helped publish the first newspapers in the US. Studies have also shown that aspiring female authors also have not had the same opportunities in the publishing world as men. 

One woman in that industry is helping to change that. Alesha Brown, head of Alesha Brown LLC, which owns Fruition Publishing Concierge Services, a company that seeks to simplify the book publishing process – especially for new, female authors – is making strides to reshape the publishing business.”

CONGRATULATIONS to our CEO, Alesha Brown, and her recent nomination to the IBPA Board of Directors beginning July 1, 2022!

With more than 4,000 members, IBPA is the largest trade association for independent publishers in the US. While this organization has always been a great resource for newer publishers, IBPA has in recent years—under the leadership of CEO Angela Bole, an excellent staff, and exceptional board and committee volunteers—grown into a strong community of traditional, hybrid, and author-publisher presses of all sizes and experience levels.

“I’m grateful for this opportunity to give back to my publishing community and look forward to my service on the board of directors after years as a proud member of this elite association. I also intend to continue my work on IBPA’s DEI (Diversity Equity and Inclusion) committee, to continue the work that we have accomplished since its debut. We are a sounding board and advisory council on issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion within IBPA and the independent book publishing community.

Award-winning entrepreneur, publisher, and former Magazine Managing Editor, launches Published! Magazine, the premier magazine devoted to current and aspiring authors, book lovers, and the companies that promote them.

Each issue spotlights the genius behind the books that should be a part of your library if they aren’t already. Too many published authors are victims of being the “best kept secret.” Published! Magazine strives to put an end to that and place their visions, passions, and message in front of those who need to hear it.

Representation matters and your voice, via your published book and author’s platform, should NEVER go unheard.

2021’s biggest buzzword, now bleeding into the new year, may just be “supply chain,” or in it’s more grim form: “supply chain crisis.” The ingenuity and creativity of small businesses during the supply chain crisis has led to many unique stories of craftiness worth sharing. In this interview, read what Alesha shares about how to beat bottlenecks with brand visibility. Click here or on the picture to read the article. 

We regularly see celebrity authors and influencers have national and international book launches and their books on shelves with major bookstore chains. This has become the ultimate standard of success for new authors. But what many new authors do not realize is that this vision is not only unrealistic, but even undesirable—and expensive.

“Listen to Alesha when she explains if it is not for someone else’s courage to tell their story, you may not be here! People transform differently by your version of sharing. If it doesn’t give you an idea of what you have to do, at least it will give you an idea of what you should not do!”

“By now you have heard me introducing many people, but the interview with Alesha Brown is more insightful. I did asked her thrice on her ending note, but kept continuing asking and listening to her. May be it is the power of some people to let us in the state of awe to listen to them. Though I have few people with two episodes, I never changed the name of the episode. This also goes to Alesha’s story to rename her second episode.
Listen to Alesha Brown saying why Its never too late to EDIT your life!”

I’m delighted to share my interview with Authority Magazine as part of their interview series on the five things you need to become a great author (video included in the article).

Recognizing the history and achievements of women in all facets of life is vital for the development of self-respect and new opportunities for girls and all women.
