Self-Publishing Advice Roundup:

  • In this month’s #AskALLi Self-Publishing Poetry Podcast, Dalma and I explore the basics of online poetry book distribution and sales trends over the past few months.
  • This week’s Inspirational Indie Authors podcast sees Howard Lovy interviewing Eric Twiggs, an indie author and motivational speaker who is an expert in procrastination. In fact, it took him a little while to figure out that was his calling, and then he held off on writing a book about it.
  • Everyone loves a good bargain. Part of being an Alliance of Independent Authors member is access to the vetted, trusted Partner Member directory. And it’s with great excitement that the AskALLi team shares a whopper of a summer sale. With thanks to all our trusted partners who have been extra generous with their discounts and sales for ALLi members. This is The Alliance of Independent Authors Summer Sale Bonanza.
  • On the ALLi Twitter chat (#indieAuthorChat) we asked questions about Lessons From a Best Selling Author with Adam Croft.
  • And finally, in Dan Holloway’s regular indie author news round-up this week, he’s looking at Frankfurt wants you; Overdrive: reorganisation or strategic move?; Amazon in Sweden and India, and audiobooks update.

Lots to learn and ponder, as ever.
