This week, among other things, Conference organiser Alexa Bigwarfe brings us up to date on our exciting plans for ALLi’s Free Online Self-publishing Advice Conference (in association with The London Book Fair)

Other Self-Publishing Advice

I talk with ALLi’s Managing Editor, Howard Lovy, on how indie authors can get the most from a visit to The London Book Fair in What Can Indie Authors Gain from The London Book Fair This Year?

Historical mystery writer Anna Castle‘s shares tips on choosing narrators for your self-published audiobook.

Our AskALLi Advanced Self-Publishing Salon with Joanna Penn and I covered topics including:

  • A preview of the London Book Fair and all of ALLi’s activities
  • News update on Facebook and other big data changes
  • Self-Publishing 3.0 is all about direct selling from author to reader
  • How to merge the creative and business mind-set
  • How to get what you want out of social media like Facebook

I bring you the final part of a three-part series about opportunities opening for indie authors through blockchain technology, as well as other changes in the author-publishing industry in Indie Authors – Get Ready For Self-Publishing 3.0 Part 3

And finally, as always, we come to Dan Holloway’s regular indie author news round-up. This week – a big week for – erotica authors with legislation changes on both sides of the pond, and Amazon’s adult book rank stripping; also, the new UK’s Independent Bookshops’ Alliance; and some exciting new tools for indie authors.
