Authors can have a variety of extracurricular activities. Depending on how involved the author wants to be with his/her book, radio shows, speaking tours and other activities can create extra income. Each of these activities could have a sponsor associated with it.

For example, if you have an online radio show at, you could have sponsors advertise on your show. Doing this is a great compliment to book sales and can provide a good source of income.

A good sponsor will not only pay you, but also help you sell books, so the partnership might be beneficial in more ways than one. To find a sponsor, I would recommend going to the website, simply fill out a profile and other companies or entities wanting to provide a sponsorship might see a match.

I have a couple sponsors that even asked tosell my Social Networking for Authors, books for me! It doesn’t get any better than that.
