Welcome to AskALLi, the self-publishing advice broadcast from the Alliance of Independent Authors. This week it’s our monthly IndieVoices’ self-publishing salon with interviews conducted by ALLi Managing Editor Howard Lovy and updates from News Editor Dan Holloway.
This Month’s IndieVoices
- Claire Baldry of East Sussex, UK, is 63 years old and recently launched a website and Facebook group focused on older readers. It’s been increasingly popular as older people look for books that reflect their own experiences.
- Maggie Christensen, an Australian writer by way of Scotland, Oregon, and California, just wouldn’t accept the notion that nobody wants to read about the lives of older people.
- Dan Holloway updates us on the news, including net neutrality, and the birthdays of Smashwords and Patreon.
- Dan promises poetry skydiving for June. We’ll hold him to that.
