Self Publishing Advice centreEach Tuesday I take a look here at  highlights from my other blog, at the Alliance of Independent Authors‘s Self-Publishing Advice Center.

This week, ALLi partner member Patti Brassard Jefferson offered sound and compassionate advice to an author member who was feeling on the point of giving up. Opinion: Indie Author Burnout Can Happen to Us All – But Together, We’ll Be Fine is a perfect example of what makes ALLi such a wonderfully caring, special community.

We share English thriller writer James P Sumnera’s Self-publishing Success Story.

David Penny and Debbie Young were back in the hot seat answering some of ALLi’s members most pressing questions in their Ask ALLi Self-Publishing Q&A session.

We’ve written a handy article that walks you through CreateSpace’s new barcode policy, helping you avoid what would otherwise have been a lot of pain and frustration – Production Tip for Self-publishing Print Books on CreateSpace: New Change of Barcode Policy. And Debbie Young takes some time to praise our good editors, we’d be lost without them – In Praise of Editors – Unsung Superheroes Who Daily Save Authors from Themselves

And last but certainly not least, we come to Dan Holloway’s regular indie author news round-up which featured Overdrive revealing their latest figures that show library lending is rising year-on-year, and Kobo’s pop-up beaches (a clever way to promote beach reads).
