Self Publishing Advice centreEvery Tuesday, I bring you the Self-Publishing Advice Blog highlights of the past seven days.

This week, our intrepid news editor, Dan Holloway’s, news round-up included Amazon’s newest acquisition, the latest ebook figures, Draft2Digital’s venture into the audio world, and justice is served to JK Publishing.

I held my monthly Q&A, inviting special guest Joseph Alexander along – a non-fiction indie author. We started off by chatting about Joseph’s journey from guitar teacher to a million dollar brand, before moving on to the Member Q&A session where he offered sound, actionable advice that any beginning indie author could benefit from. Listen here.

Laura Morelli addressed the contentious issue of indies seeking reviews in trade publications in her article How to Submit a Self-published Book for Review in Publishers’ Weekly – and Why.

Grace Allison shared her very personal story about how she came to be an indie author in her article Why I Write What I Write: Self-Help Books That Saved My Life.

And finally, Debbie Young gave us some production tips in her article How to Get the Best Out of Word When Writing and Self-publishing a Book.
