Latest News and Resources from ALLi - Week 32 2020

In this week’s highlights: Should I Self-Publish or Traditionally Publish?; Howard Lovy interviews Barry Faulkner, who better to write police procedurals than the son of a crime family?…and, as ever, Dan Holloway has all the latest self-publishing news from the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) blog roundup 2020 Week 22.

Self-Publishing Advice Roundup:

  • In this month’s #AskALLi Member Q&A, I answer our ALLi Member questions including, should I self-publish or traditionally publish?
  • This week’s Inspirational Indie Authors podcast sees Howard Lovy interviewing Barry Faulkner, who writes police procedural novels. But to leave it at that would not adequately describe who Barry is. Let’s just say that he comes from a colorful family background.
  • There are no rules in prose, you can get away with virtually anything, even not using a full stop but there are tactics that sharpen your descriptions and improve your sentence-level craft and things to avoid when writing prose. This week, we’re digging deep into wordcraft with an ultimate guide to writing good prose.
  • On the ALLi Twitter chat (#indieAuthorChat) we asked questions to Mark Leslie Lefebvre about creating an income from short fiction.
  • And finally, in Dan Holloway’s regular indie author news round-up this week, he’s looking at; RWA launches the Vivian; new from Scribd; rise of podcasting, and the impact of Coronavirus on publishers.

Lots to learn and ponder, as ever.

ALLi logoEach Thursday I bring you this round up from the self-publishing advice blog, run by the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi), the non-profit association for self-publishing authors.
