Welcome to AskALLi, the self-publishing advice podcast from the Alliance of Independent Authors. This week it's our monthly beginners' self-publishing salon with advice, tips, and tools for indie authors just starting out. It also provides a handy refresher course for established authorpreneurs.
Topics discussed this week include:
- The 90-day hot new release window and how to manipulate it with a staggered launch effort over several days.
- Using ads and your mailing list along with Bookbub-type services to boost launches.
- How to assemble a street team as a new or established author.
- Pricing strategies
Find more author advice, tips and tools at our Self-publishing Author Advice Center: https://selfpublishingadvice.org, with a huge archive of nearly 2,000 blog posts, and a handy search box to find key info on the topic you need.
And, if you haven’t already, we invite you to join our organization and become a self-publishing ally. You can do that at http://allianceindependentauthors.org.
