Alliance of Independent Authors Blog Roundup 2019 Week 49

This week, among other things, an Exclusive Ingram Tour for ALLi Members at Digital Book World on 5th October in Nashville, Tennessee.

Other Self-Publishing Advice

Scottish indie author Wendy H Jones explains how she mastered the art of taking advantage of every opportunity to build a multi-faceted writing career in How Being an Opportunist Helps Build Your Writing Career

Anne-Catherine de Fombelle, Chief Globalization Officer for self-publishing aggregator (and ALLi Partner Member) StreetLib, probes the concept of “the forgotten markets”  that can be reached by going wide in How to Reach Forgotten Markets for Self-published Books.

AskALLi’s Advanced Self-Publishing Salon in September covered topics including:

  • What’s it like to co-write with your mom?
  • What about Foreign Rights Deals?
  • CreateSpace is being rolled into KDP Print. What does it mean?
  • How many platforms should you use?

Alison Baverstock presented the results of her recent survey into ‘What Makes a Writer?’ Five ALLi author members were there and share their response in What Makes a Writer? – Feedback on Important New Research

And finally, as always, we come to Dan Holloway’s regular indie author news round-up. This week, what makes a writer; French booksellers boycotting Prox Renaudot; Amazon preparing to launch its biggest “Go” store in the US; Waterstones buying one of the best loved and most iconic of all UK stores;  and The Society of Authors launching a forceful defence of the EU’s Article 13 proposed amendment to copyright law.

The self-publishing advice blog is run by the Alliance of Independent Authors, the association for author-publishers. We also publish a range of self-publishing guides.
