Orna Ross Headshot Black and WhiteAll For One & One For All: How Author Associations Help Your Self-Publishing Career

Format: Audio Recorded Live at BookExpo America

With: Kim Bookless 

Orna Ross of Alliance of Independent Authors and Kim Bookless of Chicago Self-Publishing Group will discuss how the educational and networking opportunities from associations can help indie authors.

Associations provide authors with valuable information on self-publishing, including the steps in the publishing process, what kind of services are needed to publish quality books, and how to avoid common pitfalls. Joining author associations and groups will also give authors the opportunity to network with publishing service providers, industry experts, and each other.

By joining these supportive publishing communities, indie authors benefit from others’ knowledge and willingness to share their publishing expertise and experiences. There are many ways for indie publishers to bring their books to life, and author associations provide a supportive community for their members to explore different methods of writing, publishing, and marketing their books.
