The agenda for March 18th Online Indie Author Fringe conference will include topics that are aimed at beginner, intermediate, and advanced authors. So no matter where you are in your writing or author journey, there will be a session that personally speaks to you.
We're making sure that our self-publishing event continues to evolve and change to meet the needs our global audience. We are incorporating more sessions focused on nonfiction topics, and are increasing the quantity of sessions covering short story writing. We want to ensure you're armed with the expert advice you need to keep up to date with the marketplace demand for shorter reads.
Our Fringe to the London Book Fair has a primary focus of how to write and produce your book, and we're bringing you experts in each niche to help you achieve your writing and self-publishing goals.
We will continue to unveil our speaker line up over the coming weeks, but here's a couple of the highlights in store.
ALLi Director Orna Ross will be discussing the seven stages of conscious creation with novelist Jerome Griffin. Armed with that knowledge you will be able to increase your writing speed, improve your writing craft, and help you finish what you started.
Tim Lewis will be interviewing Award-Winning Suspense Author and #1 Bestselling Writing Coach James Scott Bell to find out how you can generate short story ideas and the best ways to publish stories in a strategic manner.
ALLi Advisor Joanna Penn, Gabriel Mercer, and Adam Croft are appearing at the London Book Fair Author HQ, and we'll be bringing you the audio session during the Fringe. Joanna focuses on how to think about each book as a potential for multiple streams of income. Gabriel Mercer shares how we can choose the optimal publishing options to take most advantage of the expanding global opportunities, and Adam explains how developing a business mindset can set you up for success.
Historical and speculative fiction author K.M. Weiland outlines the most common mistakes fiction writers make and drills down into those everyday writing hints and tips like “Show Don’t Tell”.
Our sessions are by authors for authors, and I challenge you to watch, listen, and read the 24-hours of sessions we have planned and not walk away inspired. Your head will be spinning with enough ideas and creative intent to keep you motivated throughout the year.
In yesterday's Ask ALLi Member Q&A post yesterday I shared one of Joel Friedlander's top tips for indie authors:
“Keep learning and don’t give up, book publishing is a marathon, not a sprint.”
If you're an author in this race for the long haul you're going to need some training. Let us be your running partner so that we can coach and encourage you on your marathon. Then when you feel like giving up, we'll be here to cheer you on and support you until you reach the finish line.

They say that the last few hundred words are always the hardest for a writer to create. That means your book description. How can you distill down your 100,000 word work of genius into a few sparse lines?
