The book, which is part of our ongoing campaign of the same name, enables all players (including authors) to meet the challenges of absorbing author-publishers into the wider publishing and literary ecosystem.
We're partnering with Kobo to utilise their extensive retail network (which boasts over 90,000 potential retail outlets), and we're calling on our ALLi members to help us spread the word about the guidebook – and their own work.
The main launch will take place at London Book Fair, and alongside that, we are looking for ALLi members who will organise a reading at their nearest Kobo outlet to showcase the guide and launch a title of their own.
The response so far has been incredible, and for those authors already signed up, we'll be emailing you shortly with more information.
If you'd like to be part in the launch ( around the 9th or 10th April), we're still welcoming authors across the world!
Take a look over at this post on the Self Publishing Advice blog for more information on eligibility and how to sign up.
And if you believe indie authors deserve more industry recognition, don't forget to sign and share our Opening Up to Indie Authors petition.
If you're not already an ALLi member, be part of publishing history in the making and join us here.
Whilst we are on the subject of publishing history in the making – a quick reminder that the wonderful IndieReCon kicks off today…
Why attend? The giveaways? The chats? The education? The inspiration? The fun? All of the above?!
The Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi) is delighted to sponsor this event, which we believe is — hands down – the best indie author conference online.
Or maybe anywhere.
And all free.
Make sure you check in today, as ALLi's Orna Ross is doing a discussion with three ALLi members today (Jessica Bell, Kevin Booth and Roz Morris) talking about the seven stages of writing a book. (2pm EST). Find it here.
If you want to keep up to date with the latest on the conference, go to the IndieReCon web site and enter your email up in the left sidebar to receive updates and a drawing for giveaways so you don’t miss out!
