Debbie Young selects the best practical posts about book production and distribution from the ALLi 2018 archive

Compiling our traditional round-up of our top posts about distribution and production for indie authors hasn’t been easy this year, writes Debbie Young, our blog editor, because there have been so many fantastic contributions from our membership, keen to share their advice. Thanks to all the authors and partner members who have been so generous with their time and expertise, as ever, to the benefit of the indie community.

Tasked with whittling down the posts to a digestible list of just 10 below, I decided to include those that were the most indispensable – the must-reads for indie authors everywhere.
