ALLi founder Orna Ross: guest speaker at DBW 2017

As Dan Holloway previewed in his news round-up here on Tuesday, today (Thursday 19th January) is the big day when indie authors will be under the spotlight at DBW. Led by The Hot Sheet’s Porter Anderson and Jane Friedman, it’s running under the exciting heading “First Conference for the New Professional Author”, and you can find the full programme here.

This is a terrific example of an important event in publishing opening up to indies.

For the benefit of all ALLi members who were not able to attend, Orna will be reporting back on the conference, the expo, and the latest hot news re digital pubishing here on our blog next week.
